Greener Kirkcaldy was formed in 2009 when a group of local people who volunteered with Friends of the Earth Scotland got together with the aim of doing something positive, local, and practical for the community, and the environment.

Most of the original founding volunteers are still involved in Greener Kirkcaldy, either as members, staff or volunteers.

The charity started its first project, an advice centre on Kirkcaldy High Street, in 2010 and has grown steadily since then.

Developments have continued as Greener Kirkcaldy relocated in March this year into a new base at 8 East Fergus Place in the town.

The charity deliver projects to meet the needs and aspirations of local people: tackling fuel and food poverty, protecting and enjoying the environment as well as bringing the community together around the themes of: energy, climate change, food and growing, waste reduction and transport.
