25th July 2023 ~ What a year or 3 this has been.  Covid put a spanner in the works, and we had to spend 2020 and 2021 doing nothing but paperwork and dog walking.  2022 gave us the chance to begin planning as we had to find a more modest  building to start our hospitality training.  This gave us the opportunity to find our first vegan café in the delightful George Street in Perth. Many months of refurbishment, finding our awesome chef and we opened mid-September 2022. 
10 months later we have managed to survive the first Winter and worked with some amazing students.


The next 12 months will be interesting and filled with training, fantastic food and the next venture…the Cookery School.

25th July 2020 ~ What a week this has been… breaking news…after many months of lockdown and the inevitable challenges this has brought for all of us, we are thrilled to announce that we are now a Registered Charity!

 

This gives us a real boost that others get what we are doing and is an endorsement of our objectives.  Now the fun begins… and of course the enormous task of having to taste all the food our amazing chef is putting before us. You can all weep as you have to wait until early next year!
