Happy New Year 2017, and welcome back to St Andrews!

Refreshers Week is just around the corner, and Transition has quite a number of events lined up.

There’s something for everyone, and a comprehensive list can be found below. Like to get down and dirty, grubby and muddy? Come to one of our garden sessions. Need some household items FREE of charge? Come to the St And Re-Use Giveaway. Feeling the distance between DRA and town? Come get a bike at our Big Bike Hire Out. Want to polish your kitchen skills or just enjoy a good meal? Come to our Pesto or Hummus Skillshare events.

In addition to these, a big project is the ongoing transformation of The Kernel—our very own space at the St Andrews Botanic Garden. We are doing a push this month to get the landscaping ready, levelled, cleared and prepared for the arrival of the shipping containers at the end of the month. Sessions will be once a week on Wednesdays, from 12.00-15.00, at The Kernel.
