The River Stour Festival has a new initiative for 2021 and invites you to take part whether you are someone who loves to eat good food, a grower or producer. 30 Days 30 Miles - Tastes from the Stour Valley encourages everyone to source their food more locally, support small and independent businesses and help care for our local landscape and health of the planet. We believe that it will be possible to source a good portion of what we eat from within a 30 miles radius of where we live throughout the 30 days in September.

The aims of the project are to:
form a network of growers and producers working in the valley develop an awareness of where to source local food and drinks encourage people to grow and forage their own food further an understanding of the seasonal aspect of growing connect with nature to help slow climate change locally and globally together keep our local landscape an outstanding area of natural beauty encourage a reduction of our individual carbon footprints and plastic usage

As a local food producer, shop or trader we invite you to be a part of our online local register, that includes a map to help shoppers discover what is on their doorstep, reduce food miles supporting local businesses. As a local resident we encourage you to use this register to help source your food in a more sustainable way and welcome you to add to the list so that we can all share and take part in this initiative. We also invite submissions to our blog and your events and promotions, through our festival mailing list and social media platforms.
