Garden of Earthly Delights: The Rise of Edible Gardening Projects

There are a lot of good reasons for the rise in interest in edible gardening.

For example:
Caring how your food is grown
Trying new varieties of fruit and veg
Satisfaction from growing your own food
Saving money on shop-bought food

Horticulture Week talks this week about this increased interest, from small back gardens and allotments to larger public and private gardens.

Plant enthusiasts are increasingly challenging themselves to produce their own food

It quotes the Discover Scottish Gardens project which highlights initiatives throughout the country.

Edible gardening projects have been springing up in gardens all over Scotland this summer.

They collate events where people can learn more about growing their own.

For example the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh – which has its own Edible Gardening Project team – is having a Harvest Festival this weekend where visitors can take a deep dive into cultivating their own fruit and vegetables.

Like the RBGE, The Torridon is also a member of Discover Scottish Gardens and the Victorian Kitchen Garden beside the hotel is our own year-round edible garden project.

Our gardening team often talk to guests about the amazing variety of fruits and vegetables growing in our north west corner of the Highlands.

And of course, diners in the 1887 Restaurant invariably give thanks for the resulting harvest.
