granton:hub is one of 23 venues taking part in this year’s Power of Food Festival, an annual celebration of community gardens across Edinburgh.

Staged over the weekend of June 16 and 17, the festival aims to celebrate the benefits of community food growing, as well as encourage social inclusion, boost wellbeing, and champion environmental sustainability.

After taking part for the first time last year, granton:hub is again looking forward to hosting another weekend showcase of fun family activities, entertainment, workshops, and exhibitions.

Saturday’s highlights will include an Iron Age food workshop with the School of Ancient Crafts and music in the garden from Bows & Bridges, with visitors also able to watch volunteers work on our log boat.

Sunday’s programme includes a live puppetry show with Le Petit Monde, an interactive digital storytelling activity with the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, and live music with Cari-niteClass.

Edinburgh Scrap Store will be open across the weekend, the History Hub will host an exhibition based on the life of famed polar explorer William Speirs Bruce, and there will be workshops available in the garden.

Refreshments will include home-made soup and freshly baked bread.

Running from 12pm-3pm on both days, entry to the festival is free.
