Could you spend a weekend, or even one day unplugged from your mobile phone, your telly, your microwave? Could you spend just one day without electricity? * We think we’re all over-wired, and need some fresh air and some good food.
So Fife Diet invites you – Fifers (but really anyone anywhere) to this challenge. To help you achieve it we’re going to make you some lovely food (or suggest some lovely recipe ideas) to help you Unplug and Reconnect.
On Sunday 28 August all across Fife people will be having a picnic, slow-cooking something special...slowing down and sharing some food together…eating outdoors or taking a hike.
Organise your own ‘Unplug’ and Grab yourself a free Fife Diet T-shirt – send me your idea and win a t-shirt – first ten suggestions win! Email firstname.lastname@example.org
As well we are also creating a special Unplugged Salad Bar Feast at the Ecology Centre’s Summer Festival (12-4 at Kinghorn Loch, FREE). If you have extra stuff from your garden or allotment – bring it along on the day and we’ll clean it, chop it, dress it and serve it back to you.
It’s like BYOB at a party except with lettuce.
The Ecology Centre’s Summer Festival is the perfect location to Unplug – there’ll be live circus acts, a Puddledub BBQ, pond-dipping, storytelling, bird-house making, recycled jewellery making, games and treasure hunt. GO HERE FOR MORE DETAILS.
If you live in the East of Fife, our friends in the newly formed East group are doing there own thing and running a special Unplugged summer picnic on Elie beach. All the details are on this poster for you to download: FifeDietUnplugged_lowres
