The Upmo gardening crew have been working very hard to grow fruit and veg in the garden which is used in their workshops and café.
It has come to our attention that some people are helping themselves to the veg who are not part of the Upmo project. We ask that everyone at St Margaret’s House is considerate and respectful of the Upmo Garden, and only those involved in the project harvest from the crops.
Support St Margaret’s House resident musicians – The Jennifer Ewan Band – by going to see their show at the Jazz bar this fringe. The show starts at 5:30pm and is on the 3rd, 9th, 14th, 16th, 21st and 24th of August.
The Jennifer Ewan Band presents an exhilarating melting pot of heartfelt original songs and old-time Louisiana Creole and Cajun dance classics. As well as performing beautiful new Scottish pop, this upcoming songwriter and her bayou band demonstrate an easy familiarity with the older dance music of the swamps of rural French Louisiana – featuring Cajun blues licks from accordionist drummer Kim Tebble and swamp-pop grooves from Ian “Stretch” McFadyen on electric bass. Live Cajun band and fabulous Cajun food! ‘Just brilliant – music of the highest quality – a Scottish rising star’ (Janice Forsyth, BBC Radio Scotland).

An art installation by Anne Gilchrist celebrating the variety and character of this lovely collection of trees in
Princes Street Gardens (East and West)
Exhibition runs 15th July-15th September 2018
22 jigsaw-puzzle shaped pieces set in the trees
My “cryptic” work is generated from the immediate environment, blending art to
landscape. The installation is conceived as an experience of discovery, drawing you
into an interactive variant of landscape painting.
I also like to think of this kind of work as a silent witness to the natural world around
us. It is quiet, almost secret. Just being there is enough, as it is for the trees.
