The Discover Local Project ran from September 2010 to March 2013 and focused on local and traditional produce, crafts and skills which help to conserve and enhance the Shropshire Hills. The project encouraged people and businesses to make the link between the landscape and local products, and use what the Shropshire Hills has to offer. The project also supported and developed commercial opportunities for small scale local food, drink and craft businesses.
A collection of local recipes, stories and photographs were researched, collated and archived on the Shropshire Hills Buy Local website.
Product Profiles were also developed and can be downloaded here:
Discover Local also organised a series of consumer and business events. The consumer events were based on landscape habitats and local produce, while the business events were organised in consultation with the Shropshire Hills Sustainable Business Scheme members.
