The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh’s Science on a Plate exhibition is currently up and running in the John Hope Gateway. The exhibition focuses on where the food on your plate comes from with information from Scotland’s leading scientific institutes. The Edible Gardening Project slots nicely into the subject matter and we have our own presence in the exhibition.
There is also a collection of rather lovely photographs by Carlo D’Alessandro. The images focus on some of Scotland’s Allotment Gardeners. For those of you who can’t visit us, here is an example of Carlo’s work.
We are getting involved with the culinary side of things too. I mentioned Neil Forbes and his involvement with the project back in January. The Edible Gardening Project team will work with him in the Real Life Science Kitchen for the Plot to Plate sessions on the 9th April. Neil will be creating delicious masterpieces using fresh vegetables from our garden, and the team will be on hand with growing advice.
