A Climate Challenge funded project running until the Spring of 2017 at Kinning Park Complex, to reduce & encourage carbon-emission reductions. Waste not Want aims to engage with the local community while promoting low carbon lifestyles through:
- Gardening & cookery workshops
- Up-cycling, repair and sewing workshops
- Community meals
- Redistributing supermarket food waste
- Support for home composting
This will include monthly clothes swaps and textile re-use workshops, a weekly community meal, regular gardening activities and fortnightly workshops on a range of topics relating to food and waste.
In doing so we aim to provide participants with information, as well as skills and knowledge, but also through access to resources such as home composting materials, the textile bank, the community meal and the community garden.
All these activities are free and funded by the Climate Challenge Fund.
We are currently recruiting for our volunteer programmes, for a range of opportunities! More information can be found here
