How we made our Veg Bags

You may have noticed that the lovely veg bags that were made and sold a couple of weeks ago had our logo on them. Instead of spending any money to make them, we put our heads together and got creative to brand up our carriers. We used left over materials donated by one of our volunteers, made a stencil and sprayed it on the bags. It was a bit of trial and error but judging by the reaction to the bags, definitely worth it.

Soup Saturdays Throughout February

soups
Throughout February the shop has been open for Soup Saturdays. It’s an opportunity for passers by to drop in, have some free home made soup and learn about Dig-In. The drop-in’s, which run weekly from 11am-3pm have been a fantastic sucess so far and we’ve met lots of amazing people, shareholders and eager volunteers who want to help out.

We still have two more soup Saturday’s taking place on the 15th and 22nd of February so if you’re in the area, come along to 119 Bruntsfield Place, try some delicious homemade soup, and find out more about our plans.

Welcome To The Shop!
