NEWS: Picnic in Porty

Portobello is known as Edinburgh's seaside, and this Saturday, if the weather's good, you can go along to a picnic on the beach (or church hall if it rains). Portobello Energy Descent and Land Reform Group (PEDAL) are hosting a 'local food shindig'. Bring along some local food to share and learn about the 'energy descent plan' and sustainable living. If you've got some excess fruit and veg from your garden or allotment you can sell them as well.

It all takes place on Saturday between 4pm and 8pm on the beach (by the end of Brunstane Road North) or in St Phillips Church Hall if the weather is inclement.

I haven't been to Porty for over a year but it's a great part of the city, and this event means you can eat good food, learn more about a green lifestyle, and escape the festival madness for a few hours.
