The Grimsay Community Association contributes to the development of the Uist food scene:
In August 2017, Grimsay Community Association was a partner in the Toradh / Harvest Festival of Food and Writing. We coordinated a programme of events across North Uist that highlighted the high quality produce that comes from our land and shores and welcomed visitors to share that food with us. We also contributed to discussions on food issues in the Uists.
We partner with the Blackland Centre, a neigbouring research centre for crofting land use on organic soils, and cooperate on public education and events.
