This summer, Edinburgh hosted the inaugural Power of Food Festival – a packed weekend of events and family activities celebrating community food growing across the city. Fifteen community food gardens opened their gates to the public with an estimated 500 visitors enjoying the event.
Visitors were given the chance to try everything from insect-hunting to tattie-lifting. There was poetry writing and music from local bands and choirs. There was plenty of opportunity to taste local produce and sample lots of yummy food, including a free communal meal served to 60 people. Over the weekend, visitors learnt about herbalism
and how to grow tomatoes, heard food-inspired storytellers and picked up some new recipes to try out.
