The Power of Food Festival, a city-wide celebration of community food growing all around Edinburgh, will take place around several locations in the city on 17-18 June 2017. First of its kind, The Power of Food Festival was set up in 2015 and is now going into its 3rd edition. The festival is an event for everyone, which aims to inspire people from all walks of life to rethink their relationship with food, and promotes an ethos of environmental sustainability and social inclusion.
The Festival takes place around the summer solstice, chosen for its symbolism of renewal and growth. It’s entirely free and volunteer-run, with no grant funding, but with the wonderful input of a fabulous range of partners (individuals and organisations) who offer – pro bono – all sorts of fun and entertainment in the community gardens taking part. The Power of Food Festival also works with like-minded organisations at a more strategic level to optimise the event’s capacity to reach out and to enhance its programme content.
