Local Food Works

Local Food Works at the
Centre for Stewardship in Falkland

 Creating a more sustainable, resilient and healthy local food economy

Local Food Works

Local Food Works is an exciting project, led by Falkland Stewardship Trust in partnership with community members who are passionate about bringing local food the the local community. It is funded by the Climate Challenge Fund so one key aim of this project is to reduce carbon emissions, particularly those we accumulate through our food choices.

Through this project we offer a range of activities and events including a weekly local food hub in Falkland as well as community meals, cooking workshops and food demonstrations. We aim to make it easier for the local communities to access, cultivate, harvest, process, cook, taste and celebrate local food.

Through this project we will create a more sustainable, resilient and healthy local food economy that leads to a proven reduction in carbon emissions through the food chain network.

Videos

These Local Food Works videos showcase the project to date, looking at its four main elements; the weekly local food market in Falkland, the food workshops, community meals and the growing spaces at the Centre for Stewardship. As you will see, the project is making a real difference to the way people shop by reducing CO2 emissions. Thanks to everyone who took part in the videos. To view, just click on the link below. We hope you enjoy them!

 

Our Next Event… Foraging Workshop

We are delighted to welcome Monica Wilde who will lead a foraging workshop at The Centre for Stewardship in Falkland. Monica is a forager, research herbalist and ethnobotanist as well as a Fellow of the Linnean Society. She teaches foraging courses all over the country and runs Napiers The Herbalists, Scotland’s oldest herbal medicine and complementary health company.

So, if you have ever wanted to know more about the particular herbs, plants and flowers that grow locally, now is your chance to find out! Monica will take us on a walk around our beautiful estate and will teach us how we can use nature’s larder to its best effect. Children are welcome but unfortunately dogs are not permitted on this walk.
