The Kernel aims to provide groups across St Andrews with a space where they can undertake practical projects that contribute to reducing carbon emissions in the face of climate change. This could be waste reduction, upcycling, food growing, and energy advice. It provides a place for group members to interact, share knowledge, skills and resources.
The Kernel is at the heart of Community Share for Climate Care project, supported jointly by Transition University of St Andrews, St Andrews Botanic Garden and St Andrews Environmental Network, funded by Climate Challenge Fund.
