Welcome to Kingston HIVE!

Kingston Hive is a collective of local volunteers who took over a vacant space in the Cycle Hub next to Kingston Station in November 2022, since then we have been busy for transforming it into a vibrant hub to benefit people and planet. 

 

We aim to give residents the skills and support they need to:

  • Cut carbon emissions and energy costs

  • Reduce, reuse, repair and recycle

  • Eat a greener diet

  • Live a more local, sustainable lifestyle

  • Look after the natural environment

  • Join together as a resilient and compassionate community

 

 

We have run hundreds of events such as drop-in home energy advice sessions, vegan cooking demos, upcycling and repair workshops, a swap shop – and much more. We’re committed to empowering Kingston residents to reduce carbon, costs and waste – making our beautiful borough a healthier, happier place with a green future.

 

Come and join us!  We need a range of skills and experience – but above all, enthusiasm, a love for Kingston and passion for our amazing planet. We meet on the first and third Tuesday of every month, 7-8.30pm at the Cyclehub.

    The climate and ecological crisis can feel overwhelming. This is a safe space to share difficult feelings with like-minded people. It can be very healing to realise you're not alone, and to be able to express fear, sadness and other emotions with others who understand.
