Yesterday was a great afternoon of food sharing and chat at Edinburgh’s Blasda at Out of the Blue. There’s too many people to thank but in the meantime here are a selection of photos and links (see more at our Facebook page here). Also, Ally Tibbit from Greener Leith couldn’t make it but we are creating the Edinburgh Food Map online between now and the Nourish conference.
As part of the Edinburgh Blasda celebration, we’re making an Edinburgh Food Map with your help. If you know of a good community food project anywhere in Edinburgh please tell us about it using the form below. The information you provide us will then be used to build a community food map of Edinburgh.
Go here to add your local food idea: http://www.greenerleith.org/edinburgh-food-map
It could be an allotment, community garden, great cafe specialising in local food, community food project, orchard, a great spot for brambles or whatever you want- add it in!
Yesterday was such a good day – here’s some of what was going on. We had good bread from Breadshare Community Bakery (find out all about them here)…This is such a good project that combines community-building and really great bread and baking (!)
Wonderful chat and cheese from Phoebe Weller, Scotland’s finest Fromagière – exploring a Scottish terroir with wit and wisdom…(see Vive le Cheese here).
Great to have Sunshine on Leith garden (plus Granton Community Garden too) see more here.
So good to have wild drinks to taste and experiment with. These were brought to us by Anna Canning and friends from Flora Medica: reconnecting people with food, wild nature and plantlife, community medicine. See all about them here. It sometimes seems peripheral but it’s vital that we can reconnect and regain some natural control over our health and wellbeing.
Absolutely brilliant to have the Leith World Kitchen along demonstrating three different ways with potatoes via Spain, India and Africa. Find out more about them here.
Finally, lots of people talked about what a brilliant space the Drill Hall is, check out their activities and events here.
