The Power of Food Festival
The Power of Food Festival, (17-18 June 2017) showcases community food growing around Edinburgh and celebrates the amazing people who breathe life into neighbourhoods through their work in and around the gardens. During the space of a weekend, numerous community gardens that grow food in Edinburgh open their gates and offer fun and entertainment to the public.
