Description

If you enjoy using local and seasonal food in your cooking why not support Forth Environment Link and become a Zoom Cooking Assistant.

Your role would be to support the Climate Kitchen & Garden Community Cook with Zoom cooking sessions. You would be cooking along at home but offering support to a small group of participants who would be cooking in their own homes. The sessions would also include conversations about climate change, local and seasonal food, with full training provided.

Organisation aims and objectives

Forth Environment Link (FEL) works with communities and partners across Forth Valley on environmental and food issues. Covering the local authority areas of Stirling, Clackmannanshire and Falkirk, FEL combines environmental education and awareness with project support through the Stirling Cycle Hub; Grow Forth, local food initiative; Forth Valley Orchards programme and the Zero Waste Communities project. FEL began in 1989 with the aim of teaching children about biodiversity and nature. In response to community need and interest, the organisation grew in both mandate and geography, expanding to include adult education and demonstration projects. 2008 Forth Valley Food Links merged with FEL, bringing an additional focus on sustainable local food production and consumption. In 2013 Stirling Cycle Hub was formed to increase awareness and participation in cycling and cycling related activities in the area.
