Edinburgh Shoreline Saved For Summer
Two new volunteer groups, Seafield Shoreline and Joppa Shoreline are being set up by local people, supported by the Edinburgh Shoreline project. The project applied for more funding and were successful in securing £15000 from Scottish National Heritage’s Green Infrastructure Community Engagement Fund, one of the project’s initial funders. This allows them to continue until September 2019, saving the project from ending in April. Launched in March 2018 the project aimed to reconnect Edinburgh citizens with their coastline. The developers, Karen Chambers, Elspeth Wills and Leonie Alexander were passionate about raising Edinburgh’s profile as a coastal city. Project manager Charlotte Johnson of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh said: “Our first 12 months were a great success in connecting with people. Over 40000 attended an exhibition at the Botanics in summer 2018 and 1500 have been to events. We’re hoping to continue this engagement over the Summer.” The additional money will allow the Shoreline project to continue engaging the community, allowing people to explore the importance of the Firth of Forth, its landscape and habitats, challenging people to think about why we should treasure this resource. Charlotte Johnson explained: “We’re particularly excited to support these groups in their mission to improve their local greenspaces: planting shrubs for birds and invertebrates, Scottish native wildflowers for pollinators, creating insect hotels etc. We’re looking forward to working in collaboration with them and the City of Edinburgh Council to improve these local sites for people and wildlife, and we are always keen to hear from others who are interested in getting involved on their patch!” With new signage to be installed this month in Port Edgar, South Queensferry, Silverknowes, Granton, Newhaven and Leith, the Edinburgh Shoreline project hope to encourage people to visit and learn about the important places, habitats and wildlife found nearby, as well as signposting interesting places to visit. Whilst on your Shoreline adventure, check out the newly unveiled mural at Seafield Promenade, a celebration of the areas wonderful coastal landscape. The recently released Edinburgh Shoreline Activity pack is available on the project website www.edinburghshoreline.org.uk. This gives communities, families and groups great ideas on ways to celebrate our seas – from carrying out beach cleans to surveying your local wildlife. Over the coming months keep an eye on the website for fun activities/events like the Urban Butterfly ID Workshop where you will learn how to identify and record Edinburgh’s butterflies.
Change Your Mind, Change Your Life …
By Gillian Dalgliesh
Mounting pressure at work? A boiler on the brink? Kids pushing you to your limit? These or similar can make up just an average day! On days like this it can be hard to turn that frown upside down! However self-awareness and the understanding that we are not our thoughts or emotions – we call the shots! We can choose to feel low or overwhelmed or we can choose to “always look on the bright side of life!” Here are some tips that can help us to refocus. 1. Focus Focus is a powerful tool for achieving goals and attaining happiness. Believe it or not, whatever you focus on grows, whether negative or positive. If you are not sure what you want to achieve, then you are likely to become muddled & frustrated by lack of achievement. Identify clear goals and you will have more chance of achieving them. 2. Count Your Blessings Concentrate on the positive things in your life in order to encourage better things. Buy a notebook and before you go to sleep write down a minimum of 3 positive things that have happened to you that day. Re-read them and hold onto the positive effect they have on you. Having a bad week/month? Re-read your journal to revitalise, re-inspire and recalibrate yourself! 3. Destroy Your Limiting Beliefs Limiting self-belief can cause negative programming & conditioning but you have the power to change it! What do Alan Sugar, Michelle Mone, Karren Brady & David Beckham all have in common? They used to be nobody! They all found the motivation to achieve a dream and so can you! Buy an inspirational book about someone who accomplished a dream similar to yours! 4. Be Careful What You Think Many people don’t realise that you create your life with thoughts – Every thought you’ve had has led to an emotion, which led to a feeling, which led to a decision, which led to an action/inaction, which led to an outcome – Your Thoughts Create Your Reality! Write down your goals and visualise yourself having achieved them. How would you feel? What would be different? 5. Live In The Present The past is exactly that, the past. The future is an illusion that hasn’t yet happened. All that matters is the present, because that is what creates your future. Build the future that you desire from the present moment. The conscious decisions that you make right now have an enduring effect on your life. If you would like more information or support in changing your mindset in order to change your life for the better, see contact details in the ad. 22

A View From Westminster By Deidre Brock MP Edinburgh – international city, the arts capital of the world, host to the world’s biggest arts festival (only the Olympics and football’s world cup sell more tickets than the Fringe) – but none of it is easy; it needs the dedication and hard work of some very talented and committed people. They know it’s not easy but they know it’s worth it, too. It’s becoming less easy for them as the immigration system squeezes tighter. Every year international performers in all kinds of art forms are having their visas refused or hugely delayed. Applications that should take a few weeks are taking months, rejections are becoming more common. Refusals are appealed and the appeals upheld and quite often the performer can get here in time – sometimes with the help of an MP asking UK Visas and Immigration to hurry things up. How does putting performers through the tortuous process the UK has for visas help with our reputation as a cultured and welcoming city? Recently I managed to arrange a meeting between a couple of representatives of our festivals and the UK’s immigration minister, Caroline Nokes MP, to discuss the issue. If anyone could persuade a UK Government Minister to consider the needs of Edinburgh’s festivals, it would be Julia Amour and Sorcha Carey, the director and the chair of Festivals Edinburgh (the umbrella organisation for the city’s festivals). We’ll have to wait to see whether anything changes because words are easy in politics but actions don’t always follow and there are some distractions for London politicians just now... What is good news, though, is that there was, finally, a Minister listening to what was being said, hearing the problem firsthand and learning about what the festivals think needs to be done to improve it. That doesn’t sound like much but it’s a start.
If that meeting has an impact, if we get some changes as a result, if we improve the UK’s immigration procedures just a tiny bit, we might start rolling back the ‘hostile environment’ that has been created around immigration. The hostile environment was a deliberate government policy to make things more difficult for people who wanted to come to the UK. Its roots and its effects are intertwined with the causes and outcomes of the Brexit debates but they go deeper as well; they are embedded in an attitude of British exceptionalism and superiority. The results affect our festivals in Edinburgh but they also affect ordinary families, people who want to have the ordinary interactions with their families that we take for granted. I’ve had constituents who have made a life here as academics, doctors, entrepreneurs, and so on whose families are refused simple visitor visas. Grandparents can’t visit newborn grandchildren, siblings can’t attend weddings, parents refused permission to come and help their adult children when illness strikes. What kind of system is that? There are people who have been married for years whose husbands and wives are having their visa renewals refused for reasons that simply defy understanding. There are parents who struggle to bring their children to their new home and there are successful professionals who move away because they can’t bring elderly parents here to look after them. Families put through the wringer to no great end. If Edinburgh’s festivals can nudge this government policy away from the hostile environment just a little then they may be a catalyst for a change that could bring decency back to our immigration visa system. We’re not at the end of this journey but at least we’re on the road. 31

The Sun’s Out, Get Sprouting
By Tracy Griffen
.As the days are long and bright, I like to sprout seeds. Sprouts are seeds that have become very young plants. Sprouting is the simplest and most compact way of growing some of your own food and you can do it from your kitchen. It’s good to have a decent amount of daylight hours, and some warmth, to get the sprouts going. You can either sprout seeds using some kitchen towel and a plate or jar, or spend a little and invest in a seed sprouter. Many health food shops sell a high-rise ‘Biosnacky’ tray device that makes it possible to grow a variety of sprouts at the same time.
To Sprout Seeds In A Jar Or Sprouter 1. 2. 3. 4.
Depending on size of container, use 1 tsp – 1 tbsp seeds. Rinse well in cold water and soak overnight. Drain and place in jar / sprouter. Rinse at least twice daily. If using a jar, you can buy them with a mesh lid, or invert at an angle so the water drains away. Regular rinsing ensures healthy sprouts. 5. Sprout seeds in jar just until sprout tail appears, and transfer to a tray for growing longer sprouts. Or transfer seeds to a tray with soil for growing microgreens. They are ready after 3 – 6 days, depending on the seeds. 6. If you use a Biosnacky the seeds are spouted in a tray that drains, so no need to transfer the seeds to grow longer. Also regularly rinsing and draining the sprouts lessens the likelihood of food poisoning (stale or soggy sprouts should not be eaten, they’re good for compost). Sprouted seeds themselves are a nutritional powerhouse, effectively they have all the nutrients a seed requires to grow into a plant. I like sprouts in salads, sandwiches, as a garnish, or as a snack. You can also lightly cook them in a stir-fry. Smaller seeds equal smaller sprouts, for instance alfalfa, that tend to be better raw. Mustard sprouts are fiery and add a kick to salad and stir fries. Most of all, sprouting seeds is easy, fun and rewarding, and also a wonderful lesson in biology for children. So what are you waiting for? Get sprouting! Personal Trainer Tracy Griffen runs a wee fitness studio in Leith, and loves to eat. She writes a monthly newsletter with easy healthy recipe each month.
