Charity registered in Scotland SC019276
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.
