Food and Growing at Forth Environment Link
Grow Forth is the local food network for the Forth Valley area. We help connect and support communities and local food businesses to grow, source, cook and eat local food. FEL's currently has 2 active Food & Growing projects:
- Stirling Food Hub
- Dig In Falkirk
Our Stirling Food Hub project is currently funded by the Climate Challenge Fund administered by Keep Scotland Beautiful. We are working with our local communities, schools and food businesses; this project aims to help strengthen the relationship between farm and fork. Understanding that relationship and how it can benefit us all now and in the future is a key aspect of the Stirling Food Hub project.
We want to see local food linked to every aspect of community life. Food is our past, our present and our future and this project celebrates and promotes local food and its place in our lives.
Stirling Food Hub, is based down at the Stirling Cycle Hub, we run a variety of different food based activities look at our events calendar to find out what’s on. We are at the Stirling Cycle Hub on Wednesday mornings and Thursday afternoons, including our Stirling Food Assembly every Thursday from 4.30pm-6.30pm.
The Food and Growing team are also working in Falkirk on a project called “Dig In Falkirk”, the initiative is part of a two year project run by Falkirk Council, Falkirk Delivers and Forth Environment Link which aims to encourage more community growing projects across the Falkirk Council area.
