The Fund will only fund resources that do not damage wild places whether in the Falkirk Council area or beyond

Examples:

  • Peat-free compost. Remember, they must say they’re peat-free; multipurpose composts will probably still contain peat
  • Organic vegetable seeds and plants. No chemicals are used to produce them so there’s less environmental damage done where they’re grown)
  • Peat-free plants. This website lists UK suppliers
  • FSC-certified timber products
  • Reusable products or things made out of recycled material
