Supporters of Highland Good Food Partnership are invited to a weekend gathering at the Shieling Project on Saturday 24th - Sunday 25th September. This event is also part of the Climate Fringe Festival 2022.

What to expect

The day will include an introduction and update on the work of HGFP, with opportunities for people to discuss different food system issues. This will be followed by a selection of workshops and talks covering a range of topics for you to choose from. Topics include seed saving, land use in Scotland, fermentation and food storage, funding tips and tricks, and more!

Nourish Scotland will be hosting a workshop of the new Scottish Agriculture Bill. This will be a great opportunity for members to learn about and feedback on the Ag Bill consultation.

Please bring your own picnic lunch.

To finish off the day we will have a locally sourced meal prepared by the Shieling Project and a campfire with some tunes - bring your instrument!

This event is now open to all, but you are still invited to become a member of HGFP.  The event is family friendly, and overnight accommodation is available.
