Thrift: Climate Conversations

2024 Food UnderCurrent

Portobello

Research Award from The Royal Society of Edinburgh: Healthy Planet, Healthy People

During this year’s Art Walk Porty Festival (7-15 September) we’ll be commencing a research project exploring Portobello’s local food environment considering ways to improve access to healthy local food. 

Over four days we will introduce a series of organisations, speakers and artists working across a range of food value perspectives including food waste, and sustainable farming, together with climate conversations on ideas for future food growing initiatives within Portobello. 

The ‘Healthy Planet, Healthy People’: Community-led Research Award, is awarded by the RSE with the support of the Williamson Trust.
