Forth Valley and Lomond LEADER (FVL) offered this unique and fully funded opportunity in 2019 for businesses to take part in a specialist Wild Food training programme, designed and run by Mark Williams of Galloway Wild Foods. The programme was developed to help small businesses (existing and new starts) to develop foraging-based enterprises in the FVL LEADER area.
The training programme is now finished, with the first Wildfood Festival having taken place in Cardross Estate on September 14th 2019.
We are delighted to advise that the Wildfood Festival has now been taken on, and made bigger and better, by local business Tir na Nog - supported by some of the original course students. Tir na Nog's first festival was in 2021 and was a sell out! The next Wildfood Festival will take place on 17 and 18 September 2022 at Tir na Nog (between Drymen and Ballat crossroads) with an even more impressive range of activities.
