About The Power of Food Festival
The Power of Food Festival is an entirely free and volunteer-run festival of community food gardens in Edinburgh.
The Festival showcases community food growing all over the Edinburgh area and celebrates the amazing people who breathe life into neighbourhoods through their work in and around the gardens. Its purpose is to encourage greater societal well-being, environmental sustainability and social inclusion through the promotion of community food growing.
The Festival takes place around the summer solstice in mid-June. Over a weekend, numerous community gardens that grow food in Edinburgh open their gates and offer fun and entertainment to the public.
