Seed Truck is sowing the seeds of better food for Scotland

Thanks to a grant of over £93,000 from the People's Postcode Trust Dream Fund, a funding pot made possible with the support of People's Postcode Lottery players, a highly-visible Seed Truck has spent the summer touring Scotland, helping people of all ages to grow their own food.

Set up by Fife Diet in collaboration with WWF Scotland, the project's six-strong team offers a bonanza of different workshops, from learning about soil and composting, to sowing, growing, harvest, preparation, cooking and eating.

Sample topics include wonderful worms, seeds of change, hunter-gatherer herbs and wild food walks, the ‘mill bike’ and ‘smoothie bike’, magic porridge pot and sustainable living through permaculture.

So far, the Seed Truck has taken part in an array of events across Scotland, including:

  • Glasgow Harvest,

  • Ayr Flower Show,

  • St Andrews Craigtoun Park,

  • West Lothian Better Off: Re-use it Don’t Lose It,

  • The Ecology Centre Summer Festival,

  • Dundee Food and Flower Festival,

  • Fife Blasda, Edinburgh Blasda,

  • Ceres Primary School and

  • Newhaven Fest.

Student Anna Mignot, has produced a short YouTube documentary about Seed Truck and the people and ideas behind it.
