Hi! We are gather!  And simply speaking, Gather is a food + lifestyle project that advocates and activates for environmentally mindful living + eating through eating experiences, workshops and conversations.

We started activating in January 2016 with eco-educational pop-up dinners, soon expanding into a gather pop-up restaurant where we hosted workshops, talks and events advocating for environmental sustainability.  All of our fresh produce was sourced entirely from Cape Town's small-scale urban and peri-urban farmers - this is a sourcing ethos we commit to whenever we are working with food.  We only intended to hold the pop-up space for three months, but due to popular demand we stayed open for a 'second season' and finally closed in April 2017. 

Since then we have continued to organise workshops, talks and dinners and we want to be able to take the work of gather a little bit further, we want to use our skills to share the work of the many amazing farmers, activists, social entrepreneurs and other such inspirational individuals through a podcast series and a  b o o k !  

Throughout gather's short history,
we have been overwhelmed by the positive support and feedback from our community.  Thank you! Thank you for choosing to support your local small-scale farmers through eating our food, and grow an empowered, make-it-yourself culture through engaging in our workshops and talks.  We want to keep facilitating these exchanges, and to keep highlighting the amazing work of the farmers and individuals working in this realm, but will need your support to do so. 

We have created this Patreon, in an outreach to attempt so that we can begin working on a gather book and develop the gather podcast series, as we realise we cannot do it alone!

gather is collaboration between friends and colleagues Daniela Puccini and Filippa Harrington. Daniela Puccini, a fine artist and trained chef and Filippa Harrington, plant-based chef, menu consultant and food activist have been collaborating in the kitchen since meeting in 2013, weaving their respective Italian/South African and Swedish food roots and environmentally conscious ethos into some seriously delicious creations for wellness retreats, local cafe’s and pop-up dinners.
