Slow Food Supper in Aid of 10000 Gardens in Africa

Venue: Contini George Street // 103 George Street
Date: Monday 24th June
Time: 6.30pm

Join us for a Slow Food supper in aid of their 10000 gardens project in Africa. The evening will be hosted by Victor & Carina Contini who will talk about the fantastic produce from our one acre Kitchen Garden in Lasswade. It has taken us a few years of hard work and dedication to really establish and mature the land. We are so proud of our garden that is able to provide an abundance of seasonal fruit and vegetables for the restaurants throughout the year.

In addition Victor will host a small honey tasting comparing his honey made from hives at the Contini Kitchen Garden, Mod One and a known supermarket brand.

Ticket price £20.00 per person (£5 goes to Slow Food) and will include small glass of wine, Antipasto sharing platter, Kitchen Garden talk and honey tasting. 


Additional wine, coffee and dessert will be available to purchase on the night.

10000 Gardens in Africa is a Slow Food international project which aims to create allotments in Africa to help small communities to be sustainable. A garden in Africa costs €900.

In recent times Slow Food Edinburgh committed to support a Garden in Kimashuku in the Kilimanjaro region. The garden will be donated to Kimashuku Children Home in order to involve the children fully in the gardening activities. Find out more here
