Interesting Events along the river in the coming weeks - Disco Soup, Our Stockbridge and Grow Wild Network Day

There are many interesting places near the river and in the coming days and weeks the following events have caught our eye - perhaps you are interested to:

On March 14th - the Grow Wild Network Day is at the Botanics - The day is for Community Gardener and will inspire and inform you about new ways to enhance your community impact through native wild flowers, plants and fungi, engage new audiences and share your project's success

On March 25th - its the return of DISCO SOUP at Saughton Park - Brought to you by Food Sharing Edinburgh, Disco Soup is all about reducing food waste to a disco groove - come chop, come chomp and let the beat drop. Join us at Saughton Winter Gardens between 12 pm and 6 pm on Saturday 25th March to enjoy free soup, live music and workshops. We’ll be serving up soup lovingly prepared from discarded vegetables, alongside some groooovy tunes and entertaining workshops about food waste and sustainable food. The Disco Soup movement has swept across the world since its creation in 2012. The aim is to raise awareness of the dire need to reinvent our methods of production, distribution and consumption of food, whilst bringing the community together to party! Families, bring your kids! Students, bring your friends! We open heartedly welcome refugees that have moved into our area and our city. Bring your knives and chopping boards and spices and bowls for drinking delicious soup... and don't forget your tupperware for leftovers! Disco Soup is open to all to get involved. Please email or come along to a meeting at the Shrub Co-op (every Monday at 6pm) if you would like to help provide a workshop, collect discarded food, organise or play music or just muck in on the day.

'Our Stockbridge' is a project which focuses on recording the stories of those who grew up in Stockbridge, and then working with children from the local area to recreate the local stories through art and film. It will conclude with a community event held at LifeCare on Cheyne Street in the summer to show the film and exhibition. To kick of the project there will be a Coffee morning at:

LifeCare, 2 Cheyne St, Stockbridge Wednesday 5th April from 11am - 1pm
