The Shenton Plot is an organic plot, and all waste goes into compost which then becomes fertilizer for the plot. In camp, our waste is removed down to our plot outside the park. Garbage collection has not previously been available, but we are collectively as an industry looking at recycling solutions for the materials that would be recyclable in other countries.
The plot allows us to offer an array of quality fresh herbs, vegetables and fruit which would simply not be available to us otherwise! Not only do we have an ongoing fresh herb supply throughout the season we also enjoy seasonal crops of vegetables and fruit which make up the bulk of our fresh supplies for guests and staff. Our happy hens supply us with eggs used for baking and brunch!
Most guests are aware as the food does become a topic of discussion for the guests, and also when presenting the menu, the Exec Chef does reiterate which of the meals are created solely from the Shenton Plot. Some guests also get the chance to stop by at the plot and see the lush gardens and meet the hens, on either their arrival or departure to see the team at the plot at work as we briefly stop to collect fresh produce for the camp.
