Embracing Sustainability: Our New Vegetable Garden

This year marks an exciting new chapter in our commitment to sustainability. To boost our eco-friendly efforts, we're thrilled to introduce a brand-new vegetable garden at Sun Gardens Dubrovnik.

This garden not only enhances our beautiful landscape but also offers guests a unique opportunity to see and learn about indigenous Dalmatian and Croatian plant varieties. Our gardening team has been deeply involved from the initial idea to the garden's realization, navigating several crucial phases of agriculture to bring this project to life.

Our resort has long been celebrated for its lush olive groves and extensive gardens, and the addition of this vegetable garden is a testament to our dedication to sustainable living. We began with careful planning, selecting a variety of vegetables and herbs that are well-suited to the local climate and soil. The garden features an array of fresh produce, including tomatoes, lettuce, peppers, eggplants, cucumbers, onions, carrots, zucchini, and various herbs. To further enrich the garden, we also plan to plant grapevines, adding to the diversity and charm of this green space.

One of the key elements in our garden's success is the use of organic humus, which ensures the soil remains fertile and healthy without the need for chemical fertilizers. This aligns with our eco-friendly ethos and supports the growth of robust, flavourful vegetables. The thriving plants are a tribute to the care and expertise of our gardening team, who have nurtured them from seedlings to maturity.

Our new vegetable garden is not just about growing food; it's about creating a sustainable ecosystem that benefits both our guests and the environment. The produce harvested from the garden is used by our talented chefs, particularly in the Market restaurant, where fresh, locally-sourced ingredients are at the heart of every dish. Guests can enjoy meals knowing that the vegetables on their plates were grown just steps away, reducing our carbon footprint and supporting local biodiversity.

Our vegetable garden is a significant step forward in our sustainability journey. It highlights eco-friendly practices and provides a tangible example of how we can all contribute to a greener future.

We invite our guests to explore the garden, learn about indigenous Dalmatian and Croatian plant varieties, and savour the fresh flavours of our home-grown produce. Together, we can celebrate the beauty of nature and the benefits of sustainable living, ensuring a healthier planet for generations to come.
