Newsletter #7: What happened in April?

⭐📙⭐The kitchen unit is out and about again!⭐📙⭐

April was a super exciting month for me. I took the unit out on the road for the first time and cycled it to different events around Craigmillar.

At the beginning of the month, Fork in the Road accompanied Craigmillar Community Grows on a foraging walk through Craigmillar castle park. We set the kitchen up in the park and used some of what we foraged to make delicious salads. They were a big hit with everybody! We learned that young elm and Hawthorne leaves are exceptionally tasty, and that the omnipresent “sticky willy”  works really well in salads.

"Sticky Willy" (Cleavers) can be found in many greenspaces around Edinburgh.

Making use of the bounty found in community gardens! 

Fork in the Road also made rhubarb compote with the Outside In group and soup at Wauchope Community Garden, using some of the wonderful ingredients the gardens at Sandy's and Wauchope had to offer.

For our last event of April we took part in the Easter Extravaganza at Bridgend Farmhouse, where we decorated eggs (Unfortunately, I ended up with blue hands for a few days...).

A big thank you to Edinburgh Electric Cycle Company for loaning us a bike, whenever we need one, it makes moving the kitchen around a breeze.

Volunteer appreciation shout out: Andrew, Leonie and Ylva thanks a lot for coming along and helping out!

 
What’s next?
Join us for a workshop on making herbal oils and creams at Wauchope Community Garden on 23rd May.

⭐📙⭐Have you heard about the Fork in the Road Project Handbook?⭐📙⭐
Mo spent the winter months producing this wonderful piece of work that included lots of information about the project. We still have copies left, if you would like one, get in touch! We are sharing them with a suggested donation of £5, this money will go to bringing the kitchens into more communities and green spaces.

The book, as well as the plans for the bike trailer kitchen, are now also available online. Check them out here: Book and Plans.
