Omved is an urban greenscape nestled behind Highgate High Street. Until recently, a wounded and tarmacked wasteland, it is being transformed into a diverse eco habitat with a wild flower meadow, an orchard and a vegetable garden. Through collaboration with artists, architects, chefs, musicians and horticulturalists we are exploring the nature of the relationship between people and our connection to the environment.
As Fritjof Capra said, "It is only by connecting to nature that we can know who we are.” Maybe it is also true to say that it is only by connecting to ourselves that we can know what nature is. Knowing more about ourselves and knowing more about nature is one and the same thing. At Omved Gardens we feel this is where the search for happiness and wellbeing begins.
Globally, food is a unifying as well as dividing necessity of life. It is a focal point of our relationship with ourselves and the environment and intrinsic to many of our activities at Omved. Our team brings to the Omved relationship 60 years of exploring far flung fields, farms and forests celebrating the harvest of the natural world.
Our passion is the synergy between food and creativity and this informs our business activity as well as our social enterprises. From flour milling to sustainability our endeavours bring you the offer of natural wellbeing.
We partner with the UN World Food Program on events to highlight the disparities worldwide and to speak about the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
OmVed means learning from everything; in this spirit, we facilitate exhibitions, workshops, concerts, dinners and discussions, creating collaborations around the topics of food, creativity and ecological transformation. We seek to nurture, create and contemplate.
