We will meet in the 2000m² polytunnel at 4pm on Sunday 25th Feb for a tour of the 2000m² Project, showcasing the growing, composting and cooking activities that the project has been undertaking this year as part of its Food for a Better Climate project. At around 5pm we will go to the Whitmuir Organics Cafe where we will have our homemade food and seeds swap and a pickling and preserving workshop. Hot food will be provided free in the cafe by the 2000m² Project. The event will finish at around 6.30pm.


Homemade food swap at Whitmuir


What can I bring to swap at the event?

You can bring any homemade food you think will be of interest to other swappers (e.g. your best bread, tastiest soup, yummiest cake). This is an opportunity to showcase your cooking talents and try the food of other people in your community. We will also be swapping seeds.

Will we be eating the homemade food we swap at the event?

No. You should bring containers (e.g. tupperwares) to take your items home with you. We are not permitted to have homemade food consumed in the cafe.

How should I bring my homemade food to the event?

You should bring your food divided into small portions so that lots of people can sample it. Please also bring a printed list of ingredients to accompany your food in the interest of other swappers with dietary requirements.

Is there anything else I should bring with me?

If you can, it would be good to bring one or two empty and clean glass jars for the pickling and preserving workshop. Don’t worry if you don’t have any handy though, as there will be lots of spares available.
