FROM THE FIELD TO THE PLATE!
A wonderful story of vegetables, humans and bees is blossoming between the FLEUR DE METS reception catering company and the FERME URBAINE DE ST DENIS city farm, a many-sided project initiated by Olivier Darné, artist-visual artist-beekeeper-thinker-producer and now, urban market gardener.
the FERME URBAINE DE ST DENIS has many different vocations: growing organic vegetables, keeping bees, enhancing the status of local cultures, educating, creating social relations and raising awareness of healthy-eating on the basis of its territorial roots in the commune of Saint-Denis (93)
To make this project a reality, a kitchen garden, an apiary, a culinary school, a pop-up restaurant and art installation and events areas will eventually be grouped together on 3 hectares of land, surrounded by a Macdonald’s, a longitudinal block of flats and a departmental main road.
In awareness of the project’s ecological, territorial and human aspects, FLEUR DE METS, - whose production laboratory is only 5 km away (it would be difficult to consume on a more local basis!) -, has entered into a partnership with the FERME URBAINE, initially for the supply of vegetables, aromatic herbs and flowers.
FLEUR DE METS will be working with the magnificent taste qualities of these products, which unfold as the seasons go by, and the Chef’s creativity, for parts, events and dishes.
