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.
