Gardening Scotland June – Tickets just £10 at mo…

Gardening Scotland is one of my fave (and usually expensive) days out, although I don’t think I’ve ever paid full price for a ticket yet, thanks to the voucher deals that usually crop-up (no pun intended 🙂

I always go on a Sunday because you can get some amazing bargains when they start to knock the displays down about 4.30pm.

Here’s a wee look back at Gardening Scotland 2017 and Gardening Scotland 2016 and Gardening Scotland 2015.

And here’s the link to the Voucher deal  £10 instead of £17 on either the Saturday or the Sunday – who knows, may see you there…

 

 

Food Beyond The Plate – Upcoming Workshops

So, my studies are complete and the results are in, I now officially hold a Gastronomy MSc. One of my lecturers, Charlotte Maberly is running some more workshops in the beautiful Newton Walled Garden (near Dalkeith) that might well be of interest to some of you (see below)…

Food Beyond The Plate is a collaborative project between food educators, foragers, chefs, artists and producers in the Edinburgh area. They offer workshops and experiences which explore the world of food in its broadest sense.

Food Beyond The Plate – Foraging and Foodie Events

 

One of my Gastronomy lecturers is working on a collaborative project between food educators, foragers, chefs, artists and producers in the Edinburgh area.

They are offering workshops and experiences from July 2017 which explore the world of food in its broadest sense in the beautiful Newton Walled Gardens at Millerhill just outside Edinburgh.

You can find out more about the project on their Facebook page here

Upcoming events include Wild Crafts: beautiful botanicals with forager and herbal medicine specialist Anna Canning , Killing Cooking, Writing – a workshop with Ethical Carnivore author Louise Gray and How and Why to Eat The Wild – explore the possibilities of using wild foods with Rupert Waites of Buck and Birch, wild-chef and co-creator of Aelder Elixir – all of which sound fantastic for those with a love of the great outdoors, food and cooking, self provisioning and home crafts.
