We are aware that many of our guests are mindful about the environment and place related concerns at the heart of everyday decisions they make. Having been awarded a Bronze Award for committing to run our tourism business in an eco-friendly way, we understand the importance of the debate around preserving our resources and environmental protection of the world we live in.
Thus we have noted with interest that one of the themes at this year’s Edinburgh International Book Festival is “Drawing on Resources”. Events with this theme focus on topics like climate change and the natural world around us. Having had a thorough browse through the Festival programme online, one event stands out for us this year. Our recommendation for your visit to the Festival is an event in which Alys Fowler discusses the ideas behind her work ‘The Thrifty Forager’. Her book provokes us to rethink the way we eat. She sets out to inspire us to take a closer look at the environment we live in – and aims to provide us with a no-nonsense guide to foraging and turning our finds into delicious meals.
Here are further details regarding the event “Starting a Natural Revolution”, which features both Alys Fowler and Steve Benbow:
Date: 22 August
Time: starting at 3.30pm
Place: ScottishPower Studio Theatre in Charlotte Square Gardens
Tickets: Available online, at £10.00 (£8.00 concession)
The Glenora currently still has availability for the last week of the Edinburgh International Book Festival and is only 15 walking minutes away from Charlotte Square. While we haven’t tried foraging for our breakfast ingredients yet, we do only use organic produce to prepare our varied and tasty breakfast options!
