Foragers Foods were pleased to attended the 2nd Local Food Summit on Saturday 16th March in the town hall, Alloa. The event was organised by Forth Environment Link "for everyone interested in local sustainable food...whether you want to buy it, eat it, sell it, cook it or simply savour it".
Despite the cold wet weather, the event was well attended by local producers and consumers alike. There was an interesting and informative presentation on "Inspiring Food Cities" by Laura Stewart, director of Soil Association Scotland as well as table topics on composting, Greenspace Scotland, Stepin Stones and Permaculture. Of particular interest to Foragers Foods was information on the Forth Valley Orchard Initiative.
All in all it was a great opportunity to network with local groups and individuals within the Forth Valley area as well as see some of the folks we met at last years event.
We're already looking forward to Grow Forth 2014 to be held in Falkirk.
