Pop up and make it GREEN.

Located for a limited time down at circular quay, with jaw dropping views is unique temporary pop up restaurant called the Greenhouse.

The Greenhouse ( pop up restaurant ) was originally a Melbourne initiative by Dutch-born florist, artist, builder and environmentalist Joost Bakker in 2008.

Greenhouse was built using only recycled or sustainable materials. It's topped with a roof garden that supplies herbs and vegetables to the kitchen and exterior walls are vertical gardens of strawberry plants. Insulation is from hay bales sourced from local grain producers.

Inside, the flooring is made from old conveyor belting; the chairs from disused irrigation pipes. There are no rubbish bins and all waste is composted and used in the garden on the rooftop, even old oil from the deep fryers is turned into diesel to supply electricity. Oats are rolled to order, yoghurt and butter are made on the premises; and much food is cooked in a wood-fired oven.

I managed to get down to the Greenhouse last night for the launch of BMW X3 – highly recommend heading down. It will be in Sydney till the 28th March.
