There is still time to submit a proposal 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, with the first event being held at Cardross Estate on 14 September 2019. The second festival will run on 9 May at the same venue. The festival is an opportunity to celebrate all that foraging and wild food has to offer the region, and they hope it will continue to grow and prosper in the future. 

The LEADER-funded project was a pilot with the goal being that if it was successful the festival would find a new team to carry it into the future.

Forth Valley and Lomond LEADER are currently inviting proposals from businesses/social enterprises/partnerships demonstrating that they meet the required criteria for giving the festival a successful future. 

Visit the Forth Valley and Lomond LEADER website to find out more. You can also contact Nikki Kenn at or 01786 233 174 if you'd like to discuss any aspect of the criteria.

The deadline for submission is midday on Tuesday 18 February.
