We believe life is sacred. Therefore, we’ve designed our menu with mindfulness given to its impact on life – from how our ingredients are grown to how they will be delivered, prepared and presented. We want the culinary experience we share to somehow leave both the earth and its inhabitants better for our having shared it. Welcome to SoulGreens. We’re glad you’re here.
This statement represents a vision of quality, organic vegetarian cuisine offered in the proud tradition of the Unity movement from UIL’s Friendship Hall! How wonderful will it be to come together over a delicious meal, walk a stunning nature trail, peruse the gift shop and then join in an afternoon meditation on, say, a Tuesday?
UPDATE: At present, the initial application (a very long document) was submitted to the county. After many weeks, the county requested several corrections. We are in the process of amending the application to meet their requests. As we understand it, upon final approval of the application, we will be prepared to move forward with purchasing and construction. We expect the construction phase to be minimally impactful.
Thank you for including this vision of community, outreach, stewardship and responsibility in your spiritual practices. We promise to keep you posted.
UPDATE (June 24, 2021):
While we like to pat ourselves on the backs for our most brilliant thoughts, sometimes I think the actual process is really quite opposite: ideas are perfectly formed and fully funded as they exist in Mind and they are simply awaiting souls to capture them and then to enjoy the experience of seeming happenstance that is an idea demonstrating its sufficiency through that receptive vessel! So, while we like to pat ourselves on the backs for our most brilliant thoughts, we would do better to pat ourselves on the backs for our courageous receptivity!
That’s how we met Chef Robin. Cordon Bleu trained vegetarian chef, Robin’s artistry made its way to us through a neighborhood Cinco de Mayo offering and so began our collaboration! Following Chef Robin’s lunch for the Committee and the Board of Trustees, we met onsite for the second phase of the kitchen redesign process, which will ultimately result in the commercial kitchen from which the cuisine of SoulGreens Bruncheonette will emerge! Next steps include the onsite consultation with the county representative, the final approval of the plans, the deconstruction and construction phases to be followed by a few soft open events!
Chef Robin will be meeting many of you through small events between now and the grand opening! Beyond her immense talent for deliciousness, Chef Robin is fun, creative, warm and compassionate – you will love her! Stay tuned.
