'Soil to Slice' project

Friday, 14th April, 2023 14:15


The Soil to Slice project is a community bread project by Scotland the Bread, a mill and social enterprise. They are very generously providing seeds – wheat and rye – know-how, and eventually processing equipment for communities growing their own local grains. Throughout the growing season the growth of the grains will be monitored and the collected data contributed to research conducted by Scotland the Bread.

In August we hope to harvest the grains and mill Chisholme's local flour and bake some bread from it. On Friday the 14th of April you are welcome to participate in the sowing of the first seeds in the Walled Garden. This event will be taking place during the volunteer Garden Week (11th - 18th April).

We are delighted that Lyndsay Cochran, the project coordinator for Scotland the Bread, will be able to join us on Friday. She will lead us through the seed sowing, give an introduction into the project and will be happy to answer any questions. The afternoon will start at 2.15pm in the Walled Garden. At 4pm Tea will be provided at the House and we will finish with a short film afterwards, so that the day ends at around 5pm.

Please let us know as soon as possible whether you would like to join us. You are very welcome to come for the whole day for extended gardening or just for the afternoon event.

For booking and all enquiries please email
Free to attend, donations welcome.
