Blasda 2012 – Scotland’s local food feast – will be on Saturday September 15 2012, as part of Food and Drink Fortnight. It will again be a celebration of regional food variations, community growing and an opportunity to ‘connect up’ the local food movement (everywhere).
The project is open to all and we are again looking for a great spread from highland to lowland and from urban and rural Scotland.
The Fife Diet is co-ordinating the project in collaboration with the Hiddens Gardens, which will be delivering the ‘Culture Kitchen Relay’ - a two week journey around Scotland in August, taking recipes from one community to another celebrating the local ingredients and regional dishes that make up our unique food culture. The Seed Truck project is also offering visits to run free workshops on growing your own food – ‘sowing the seed of a better food system’. The combination of these two touring projects will – we hope – bring more cohesion and links to the network.
We are looking for projects who want to be part of this. We are especially keen to make contact with projects from Aberdeen or Aberdeenshire, Dundee, Perth and anyone who wants to be involved in a collective event in Edinburgh or Glasgow.
If you are interested in getting involved and coming to a planning meeting in Glasgow next month, contact: Clementine Sandison, Culture Kitchen Creative Producer firstname.lastname@example.org, or Mike Small, Director, Fife Diet email@example.com.
