Our latest Full Circle event, a meet up group hosting monthly conversations and guests about Zero Waste, will take place at 7pm on Wednesday, February 13th. For Full Circle VII we are joined by Sophie Lejeune, Director of Society Zero and TedXGlasgow speaker Victoria Heaney to chat about ‘Zero Waste Periods’. We’ll be exploring the topic of zero waste periods by discussing period poverty, reusable period products, waste associated with period products, and more. As well as a friendly, accessible environment to meet like minds and ask questions, we will offer refreshments to all attendees from the lovely folks at our cafe. To book your place, follow this link to the Facebook event.

In this weeks Grain, Pulse and Pasta Selection you’ll receive the grains and pulses to make Vegetarian Haggis. Here’s the first stanza of Rabbie Burn’s poem “Address to a haggis” to say before you eat it up:

Fair fa’ your honest, sonsie face,
Great Chieftain o’ the Puddin-race!
Aboon them a’ ye tak your place,
Painch, tripe, or thairm:
Weel are ye wordy of a grace
As lang ‘s my arm.
