Celebrate Harvest with a One Planet Picnic!
Harvest is the perfect time to host a picnic that is good for you and good for the planet!
Scotland offers some fantastic local and sustainable food choices and this harvest season, we're urging you to celebrate it by hosting a One Planet Picnic.
This year, many of us have discovered amazing local food on our doorsteps, from small egg producers, to local online food markets and milk delivery firms. Many of us have relied on local food systems and rediscovered our love of baking bread and taking time to plan our meals and cook from scratch again.
Whether you prefer sweet seasonal fruit or locally sourced fish, hosting a One Planet Picnic allows you to celebrate the local food and recipes you love with others – online or in person in small groups. One Planet Picnic helps to raise awareness of the sustainable, local and seasonal food choices that everyone can make, as well as reducing food waste, food miles and food packaging.
A One Planet Picnic is good for you, and good for the planet.
Eve, our Education and Learning Officer says: “Last year more than 17,000 people were registered to take part in a One Planet Picnic and as we emerge from lockdown restrictions we would love to invite people to get involved this year. Why not organise a picnic with a small group of friends and make the most of our stunning scenery or a local park, or host an online picnic with work colleagues or family.
A picnic is a great way to come together, it’s environmentally friendly and there is even a prize draw to enter just by registering your picnic with us.”
Register your own One Planet Picnic at www.keepscotlandbeautiful.org/oneplanetpicnic and access a range of resources including recipes, invitations and posters. You will also be entered into a prize draw to win a baking starter pack and baking book donated by the Association of Glasgow Bakers
