A taste of Bute at Rothesay open day

It might be the middle of summer, but conditions for Bute Produce's open day in Rothesay on Friday, July 5, 2014 were decidedly dreich: these three visitors found a taste of some warming soup, made with vegetables and herbs from the Bute Produce garden, to be just the thing.

Fruit, vegetables and herbs grown in Rothesay were available to sample on Friday at an open day at Bute Produce’s market garden on the edge of the town.

Chef Alison Sykora created soup, risotto and a delicious Victoria sponge cake using tasty fruit and veg from the garden at Ashfield, next door to Rothesay Joint Campus.

Information was also available on Bute Produce’s garden box delivery service, NHS Highland’s self-referral dietitian service and the recycling and re-use service run by Bute Produce’s parent organisation Fyne Futures, the ‘sustainability’ arm of Rothesay-based housing association Fyne Homes.

In addition there was also information on Bute Community Power, the recently-established ‘community benefit society’ on the island aimed at generating electricity on the island through the use of a small number of wind turbines.
