The Sprouting Project

Sprouting Project Exterior

What was once just a seedling of an idea has blossomed into the resort’s most unique offering. “The Sprouting Project” consists of a state-of-the-art aquaponic greenhouse, an expansive organic garden, a large collection of beehives, and a barrel room.

Enjoy a one-of-a-kind epicurean journey with three different experiences in our Sprouting Project and Barrel Room. Led by the culinary team at Omni Amelia Island Resort, The Sprouting Project and Barrel Room Experience will give guests a chance to learn about the art of blending their own hot sauce, taste different varietals of honey, and enjoy barrel aged cocktails. All ages are welcome. See below for additional details.

The Sprouting Project also hosts monthly dinners. Don’t miss out on a wonderful opportunity to get up close and personal with our talented culinary team. Guests will enjoy a true farm-to-table experience and gain intimate access to what is often referred to as our “Chef’s Playground.” See below for additional details.
