A Sustainable Community


fostering a community-centric dining experience

At eden, we foster a community-centric dining experience grounded in sustainability and social responsibility. We utilize seasonal, locally sourced ingredients from our on-site greenhouse and farm partnerships and prioritize waste diversion initiatives to minimize our environmental footprint. Additionally, we collaborate with local and minority-owned businesses aligned with our mission to promote inclusivity within our community and support the vitality of our local economy.

our initiatives


sustainability is at the heart of our business

We strive to contribute to a sustainable and inclusive food system by addressing environmental concerns, engaging with the local community, and promoting economic growth. To this end, we have implemented various initiatives and processes, including:

  • Utilizing our on-site greenhouse for growing ingredients.
  • Prioritizing local sourcing to support nearby farmers by planning our menus around seasonal availability.
  • Utilizing WasteNot’s services to collect and compost waste.
  • Minimizing plastic waste by adopting compostable or recyclable packaging.
  • Participating in a cooking oil recycling program to convert used oil into biofuel.
  • Recycling glass, paper, and aluminum.
  • Replacing plastic water bottles with glass and aluminum water products.
  • Using linen hand towels in our restrooms.

from garden to table

Our greenhouse, a unique feature spanning 20 feet by 28 feet, hosts 18 garden beds, each measuring 4 feet by 4 feet, alongside a myriad of pots and growing vessels. Every bed, meticulously crafted in-house, cradles soil enriched over eight years with exclusively organic fertilizers. With perpetual on-site access to naturally cultivated ingredients, we actively reduce our carbon footprint by curtailing transportation emissions. The greenhouse also allows us to help support the ecosystem with the flowers we plant that attract bees, butterflies, birds, and other pollinators.

sustainable, seasonal, and local ingredients


Beyond our growing practices and initiatives, eden has been building relationships with local farms and vendors that align with our commitment to sustainability. The farm partnerships include Nichols Farm & Orchard, Mick Klüg Farms, Froggy Meadow Farm, and Iron Creek Farm. Listed below are highlights we proudly showcase to reflect this commitment:

  • Eggs are sourced from Little Farm on the Prairie, a small, local family farm raising free-range chickens.
  • Salmon is sourced from Loch Duart, one of the world’s leading producers of sustainably raised salmon.
  • Using the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch list as our guide to selecting sustainable seafood choices.
  • Our menu includes a selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes with low carbon footprints.
