Forth Environment Link

Environmental charity Forth Environment Link puts the health of people and the planet at the heart of its work to tackle climate change. It encourages more local food to be grown and enjoyed in Forth Valley; supports people to make more day to day journeys on foot or by bike; and helps reduce waste by encouraging reuse and repair.

EAT LOCAL

The charity’s local food projects include establishing Stirling’s first online local food market, NeighbourFood Stirling (formerly Stirling Food Assembly). The market is now managed by The Kitchen at 44 King Street, a community interest company helping people deal with the social issues surrounding food.

The charity is now sharing its market experience with rural communities across Scotland to enable them to set up their own NeighbourFood markets. They provide mentoring, training, equipment and promotion to support small organisations and producers.

RURAL SUPPORT

Thanks to Forth Environment Link’s support, two more successful markets have been established in the Forth Valley and Lomond region. NeighbourFood Balfron and NeighbourFood Killin provide local click and collect services with delivery in the local area. The markets provide valuable access to food in rural areas and support a growing network of local food and drink producers.

FARM TO FORK

The charity is passionate about getting more local and home grown food onto local plates in any way it can. Its other projects include pocket allotments, community orchards, community meals and most recently a ‘Veg Your Ledge’ initiative where free window box kits, made from reclaimed materials, were distributed to communities in Falkirk to help them grow their own veg at home during lockdown.

CONNECT

Meet the team at the charity’s Active Travel Hubs next to Stirling train station and Falkirk’s High Street and look out for their wood fired pizza ovens, smoothie bikes and e-bikes at local community events.
