Dining Out At The Sprouting Project

Sprouting Project dinners begin with a cocktail hour tour of Omni’s aquaponic greenhouse, barrel room and apiary followed by a harvest-inspired 5-course meal.

2020 Sprouting Project, Amelia Island

A farm-to-table experience awaits at Omni Amelia Island Plantation’s Sprouting Project.  Each month a special dining adventure offers a tour of the impressive on site chef’s garden. The tour includes an aquaponic greenhouse, barrel room and apiary. Then enjoy a 5-course meal featuring seasonal ingredients. The 2020 monthly dinners feature citrus, honey, magnolia, rhubarb, pumpkin, pecan, elderberry, truffles and more (see full 12-month dinner list further below) .

Dining Al Fresco

Each Sprouting Project Dinner begins with a cocktail reception at 6 pm. During the cocktail hour, guests sip on “harvest-inspired cocktails and passed bites,” while taking a tour of the grounds. (Watch short Sprouting Project video below to see the setting of these al fresco dinners).
