The Plant Culture Pop Up Restaurant @ Atomic Coffee Roasters Kingsland | Auckland | Auckland | New Zealand

Want to taste the future?

The Plant Culture Pop Up Restaurant is about educating New Zealand on hemp (non-psychoactive cannabis) and its nutritional benefits in a factual, safe and professional format.

More about the event.

Over 4 evenings, Plant Culture will be serving a set menu of four classic courses made with hemp seed to showcase the versatility and benefits of nature’s most nutritious seed. The menu is matched with non-alcoholic beverages.

Picture a menu comprised of gourmet bread, pizza, ice cream, and chocolate – all made with hemp seed, plant based whole-foods and fresh produce.

The menu is simply designed to inspire New Zealand on how easily hemp seed can be incorporated into the kiwi day to day diet and routine.

Do you eat a whole-food plant-based diet? If not, now is your chance to experience the difference! The menu is entirely plant based, gluten-free using non-allergenic ingredients and locally sourced where possible.

This pop up is a zero-waste, alcohol free and family friendly event.

Why hemp?

The hemp seed is the most abundant, environmentally proactive form of protein and omega 3 on planet earth. Plant Culture is an authority on hemp seed and taking initiative to clearly and safely show New Zealand the dietary potential of this amazing seed.

Currently, New Zealand and Australia are the last countries in the world to consider hemp seed fit for human consumption. Therefore, by law, you must please understand that legally we will be serving ‘animal food’ at this event. Luckily our government is working hard on changing this law right now because they understand the benefits industrial hemp has to the New Zealand economy and the health of our people.

Silent Art Auction – Charity support for the New Zealand Arthritis Foundation.

Hemp seed is rich in Omega 3 which is very effective for maintaining healthy joints and managing the effects of arthritis.
In celebration of our beautiful country there will be a silent art auction for 3 large format, framed, archive quality landscape photographs, highlighting what we are standing to protect. The funds raised will be donated to the New Zealand Arthritis Foundation.

Intro #1 to Hansa Yoga Therapy with Vincent Bolletta and Jac Wilson @ Eastwest
Aug 26 @ 11:30 am – Aug 27 @ 2:00 pm
Intro #1 to Hansa Yoga Therapy with Vincent Bolletta and Jac Wilson @ Eastwest  | Auckland | Auckland | New Zealand

Slowing down the yoga practice in order to address crucial details in the method of movement, we will investigate the biomechanics of asana and how it relates to individual posture.
Foundation yoga asana will be deconstructed to assist the student or teacher to gain greater understanding of common postural tendencies we all experience. We will learn how this impacts on both our performance of asana and how asana can impact on us.
We will consider alignment through functional processes and developmental movement patterns that support our yoga practice more naturally.

Cost: Part 1 only $80 | Part 1 and 2 (separate event page) $140

This is an introduction to a series of Hansa Yoga Therapy trainings in 2018
