Food Projects hit the High Street!

On Saturday 22nd May the Food team hit the high street to tell every­one about all PEDAL’s new food pro­jects.  We had a wee stall with bunt­ing and knit­ted veget­ables (thanks Jane for the knit­ted veg!).  Anyone who stopped to talk to us and filled in our sur­vey could take away their choice of veget­able and herb seed­ling, ran­ging from leeks, lettuces and kale to purple kala­bash toma­toes.  It was a beau­ti­ful day and the shade from the trees on the high street was very wel­come, who would have thought it — sum­mer in Scotland!  A total of 55 Porty people told us what they would like to see on the Dig In Porty! train­ing courses, and signed up for more inform­a­tion on Fruitful Porty, the Portobello Organic Market, Portobello Community Farm, the Edinburgh Garden Share Scheme and Solar Porty.  If you missed out and would like to know more about what we are doing this year, keep your eye on the web­site (we will be adding pages on all the pro­jects very soon) and look out for events and dis­plays around Portobello.  If you live in Portobello, there will also be a leaf­let all about the first few food pro­jects com­ing to your house via the Portobello Reporter any day now!
