Innahura Maldives Resort, part of Crown & Champa Resorts, recently expanded its organic vegetable & herb garden.

Accessible by a footpath, the sustainable garden at Innahura Maldives successfully grows various local produce, enabling the resort to serve guests and team members the freshest and healthiest options on a regular basis. Some vegetables under cultivation include radishes, cucumbers, eggplants, and herbs such as Thai basil, green peppers, and lemongrass. The Gardening team are passionately working to maintain the garden alongside the participation of other resort associates.

As part of the expansion, the vegetable & herb garden, located at the heart of the island, now has protective barriers to keep the produce from damages. More varieties of vegetables, such as sweet corn and summer squash, are being planted. Additionally, the team have started to grow fragrant herbs like mint, rosemary, oregano, and chives  – all of which are incorporated into the signature dishes and tastefully crafted cocktails that guests can enjoy at the resort’s restaurants and bars.

He also adds that there will be a number of unique experiences soon, where guests can pay a visit to the garden, participate in harvesting, and learn more about the cultivation of crops on the island.
