Local Food Works
Local Food Works is an exciting one year 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.
Over the next 12 months we will offer a range of activities and events including piloting a weekly local food hub in Falkland as well as community meals, cooking workshops and food demonstrations. We will 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.
We have just completed a series of videos for Local Food Works. The 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!

Come along to our Easter Baking workshop with Colin Lindsey from Breadinfife who will lead this fun and hands-on food workshop teaching us how to make these delicious bakes from scratch along with some marzipan eggs!
