Event Details

The Stirling Food Partnership was launched in May 2022 in which we hosted a series of site visits to compliment the relaunch. We’re excited to continue these events with more inspiring visits to important food places in Stirling’s food system.

We hope these short tours offer insight and opportunities for further connections and championing support for these food initiatives. Keep an eye out for more events over the next few months.

Braehead Community Garden is the Big Lottery funded project situated on the green space between Broom Road and the railway. It is a great place to spend time watching the different aspects of the growing season in the company of your friends and neighbours. You can also grow your own tasty, fresh, locally produced fruit and vegetables in your own raised bed.

Ask them about;

EGGS – members can help look after our small brood of chickens and buy Braehead eggs.

EVENTS – from Burns suppers to Christmas parties, our social committee organise an annual programme of events

EDUCATION – Classes offering hints and tips on how to grow the best fruit and vegetables and make the most from your raised beds.

COB OVEN – We have built a traditional outdoor oven made from straw and clay so that we can make our own delicious bread and pizzas throughout the year.

APPLE SCRUMPING – We’ve access to all of the equipment necessary to make apple juice and in the autumn we’ll we picking fruit from the wild trees all over Stirling.
