May 2013: Morningside farmers' market opening soon!
A new community farmers' market will be starting this summer (date to be announced shortly) in the rear car park area of the Merlin at 168 Morningside Road. The market will run on the third Saturday of each month throughout the year, and will offer a wide range of quality goods from local producers, plus cooking demonstrations, planting advice for gardeners and other special features.
This is a joint initiative of Morningside Traders Association, Transition Edinburgh South and Belhaven Pubs Ltd. It will be a wonderful addition to Morningside and our local shops, and will reduce food miles, encourage people to shop locally and keep money within the local economy.
May 2013: Proposal for a new local food project
TES has put in a funding proposal, in consultation with other community groups, for a project on fruit and vegetable growing in Gilmerton, Gracemount and Moredun. The idea is to encourage people to grow food in their own gardens initially, and in the longer term to develop community gardens on disused or underused sites. Look out for more details!
February 2013: Website news
The loss of TES's funding in 2012 plus some technical problems led to a lack of up-to-date information on the website in recent months.
We are working to put this right, and we hope to have more current content on the site in the near future. Meanwhile please be aware that some sections of the site may be out of date. Apologies for any inconvenience or confusion.
