The Climate Kitchen & Garden Project is funded by the Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund and runs until March 2022. We received £125,914.96 for the project which benefits the Falkirk community by building capacity within our volunteers and organisations, and helping our communities become climate ready by creating Climate Ready Champions.
The project aims to reduce carbon emissions and increase climate literacy by:
Increasing awareness and understanding of climate change and enabling people to move to low-carbon lifestyles
Encouraging participants to eat more local and seasonal food
Encouraging participants to travel by active modes including walking and cycling
Building capacity of our volunteers and communities to enable them to continue to deliver both food growing and cooking workshops, community meals and climate literacy engagement after the funded project concludes
Achieving recognition that Falkirk Town Centre is ‘Climate Ready/Climate Friendly’ through a local climate ready partnership
Over the next 2 years of project delivery, we will provide a range of activities within our FEL Falkirk building and throughout various local communities. Activities include:
Cooking workshops and demonstrations
Climate literacy training and workshops
Due to current restrictions, many of our activities will be delivered online over the coming months.
