Katherine MacMahon's book Recipe for a Universe combines poetry, recipes, photos and physics.
Alexander 'Twig' Champion wrote poetry on fallen branches and other found natural items and planted them in the plant pots round the cafe.
Stephanie Arskosa's audio piece 'When I was Wee...' asked the audience to respons creatively to the statement 'when i was wee I believed.....' (see photo below)
A J Sutherland had taken photos and written poems inspired by the Anthony Gormley statues along the Water of Leith

Quiet Forest is a one day event - the Forest Cafe is open until 10pm tonight, so if you're in Edinburgh, why not pop along and have a look. The cafe serves good veggie food too (we had burritos followed by carrot cake).
