Veg Summit

Slowly but surely,and largely under the radar, a quiet revolution is underway. Across the country, in cities, towns and villages, local people are transforming small parcels of land into growing spaces. While new allotment sites are being created at a glacial speed, it is in community run growing spaces that the revolution is really happening. Supported by national network GetGrowing Scotland, hundreds of community groups are finding small plots of land to grow their own fruit and veg. Building on this growing passion for fresh vegetables, Nourish Scotland invites you to their National Veg Summit later this month.

Nourish Scotland

The National Veg Summit is coming to Edinburgh this autumn.

With the passing of the Good Food Nation bill in 2022, we must now make the plans to deliver on its demands and become a good food nation. We can’t do this without thinking about veg.

This year’s Summit is your invitation to be part of a crucial conversation – and the next step – in Scotland becoming a Good Food Nation.

Join Nourish Scotland for a day of veg-centred discussions, displays and, of course, eating at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.
