Executive chef Monty Koludrovic from Bondi’s legendary Icebergs Dining Room & Bar and Surry Hills hot spot The Dolphin Hotel is returning to his Northern Rivers homeland and joining Head Chef Alastair Waddell and wild food researcher Peter Hardwick for a one-off dinner exploring the Northern Rivers native ingredients.
“I am super excited to get back to my homeland for, what looks to be, an amazing event exploring the region and learning about the forage-able goodies on offer. It is always a pleasure to bring our take on modern Australian/Italian food to new faces. Hope to see you soon!” – Monty Koludrovic
This year’s Melbourne Cup at Harvest will celebrate the wellbeing and care of horses with like minded people in our community.
Join Harvest for a fabulous lunch with great food, wine, fashion, raffles, music and fun!
No sweeps or race this year but the same event for a great cause. We invite you to come dressed up, wear a hat and be glamorous to celebrate horses.
All profits raised go to non-profit charity, ‘Horse Rescue Australia’.
“While we are not a vegan or vegetarian restaurant ( we happily cater for both ) we are a restaurant that is 100% ethical and sustainable. We are also a team of people who believe that animals being used for gambling and sport is inhumane. Our personal moral code of ethics at Harvest is treating the animals we do serve with the upmost respect – this meaning that we only serve meat products that come from local, ethical, sustainable and organic farmers. We are also a member of the good fish project, one of few restaurants Australia wide with a 100% commitment to serving sustainable seafood only. We are doing our bit every way we can, but first and foremost we are being true to our teams beliefs. We are passionate about the planet, and believe it’s essential for us to step up where we can. We felt the Melbourne Cup as it stood no longer represented Harvest and her people – so we have collectively decided to use the day to raise money FOR horses.”

Harvest Roots Inc. is a community driven, not-for-profit incorporated association formed to rehabilitate and reforest degraded pastureland, farmland, roadways and waterways. We aim to educate, involve and inspire the community, advocating the importance of regenerative agriculture and reforestation for our future. Our purpose is to make it simple for everyone to help the environment.
ROOTS stemmed from a mutual desire to begin a regeneration project with Harvest as the community platform. Tristan, co-owner of Harvest, and Joe, Harvest’s sustainability champion, brainstormed how to begin growing native Australian trees with a focus on native foods in the area. Soon, the two introduced and implemented the ‘buy one get one tree’ campaign as way to generate funds for purchasing seeds and seedlings for future planting. Kelsey, ROOTS project manager, proposed the idea of expanding Harvest’s environmental influence to directly involve the community, primarily using events at Harvest and 96 Bangalow to create a more hopeful narrative around the subject of environmental activism and climate change. Meanwhile, 96 Bangalow, Harvest’s new farm collaboration, opened with the intention of growing organic and sustainable produce for local businesses. 96’s curator, Blair, soon joined ROOTS to help jumpstart planting and environmental-discussions focusing on sustainable farming and ethical reforestation. Esther, the leader and founder of GROW, a program focusing on children’s awareness of sustainable gardening and education, joined forces to expand ROOTS as well. Our team’s combination of respect for the land and our earth with various strengths and willingness to collaborate, opened the door for ROOTS to form. As we begin this exciting regeneration project, we hope to raise and utilise our funds transparently with the community’s help.
