Growing our own food, whether it takes place in a community garden, public space or an allotment, can increase our access to healthy, affordable and environmentally sustainable food.

Stirling’s first Food Growing Strategy outlines how we intend to support current local food growing and our approach to delivering more food growing opportunities. It sets out how Stirling Council, partner organisations and communities can work together to ensure that anyone wishing to grow their own food not only has access to land but is also signposted towards guidance and support to develop the skills and confidence to begin growing.

Stirling Council supports all forms of community food growing from allotments and community gardens to community planters and fruit trees in public spaces. This is reflected in our Food Growing Strategy.

For more information or to find out how to get involved please drop us an email and we will be happy to help out.
