Invitation for proposals to take forward the Scottish Wild Food Festival from 2021

Forth Valley and Lomond LEADER developed and funded the first ever Scottish Wild Food Festival. The first festival was held at Cardross Estate on 14 September 2019, and the second festival will run on 9 May at the same venue.

The festival has proved to be meeting the needs and interests of many and has much to offer moving forward, however the LEADER funded project was purely a pilot, with the goal being, if successful, that the festival would find a new team to carry it into the future.

Could this be you?

The three largest areas of growth in Scottish Tourism in recent years are Nature Tourism, Food Tourism, and Experiential Tourism. Wild food/foraging represents the intersection of these three areas. A thriving foraging culture can bring social, economic, nutritional and environmental benefits to an area, improving the quality of life of its population. The Scottish Wild Food Festival provides an opportunity to celebrate all that foraging and wild food has to offer in our region, and we hope it will continue to grow and prosper into the future.
