Lochaber Food – Growing Food Locally
Lochaber Environmental Group has been awarded funding from the Local Connect Regional Food Fund, which seeks to celebrate and promote locally produced food and drink throughout Scotland.
The ‘Lochaber Food’ initiative aims to stimulate the production and consumption of local food in the region by encouraging partnerships between residents, restaurants and retail with local producers who employ sustainable traditional crofting practices and organic principles.
The aim of Lochaber Food is to build a robust, sustainable, and collaborative local food market where the provenance of the produce is clear, the food miles are low, and the consumer develops an appreciation of what produce is in season.
This exciting initiative will allow producers to support each other and enable consumers to access food that has been grown locally. Events will take place throughout 2019.
If you are a local producer and would like to join Lochaber Food Growers Group, please get in touch with Stephen on 01397 700090 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
