The Trust are delighted that the Greening Gorebridge project has been awarded a grant of £85,000 from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund to continue and expand the project for 2017/18.
The Greening Gorebridge project exists to bring people in the community together to connect with their surrounding environment, enabling transformation of simple things in our daily lives that tackle the challenges of climate change.
The focus for this project continues to be on sustainable transport choices and now extends its activities to food, cooking and food waste reduction, as both choices in food and transport impact on the health and well-being of the community and environment.
The Greening Gorebridge project will be offering free support through a variety of workshops and events to be held in the community throughout the year to help support our community to choose sustainable travel and cooking options, as well as supplying useful information on food waste, travel and climate change.
Events, workshops and activities will be creative, inspiring and supportive in taking Gorebridge towards being a healthier, happier active low carbon community.
