Back in the early days of the Transition Cambridge Food Group we ran a Garden Share scheme that matched would-be growers with under-used gardens. One of these partnerships in the CB4 Arbury area - a well-tended veggie plot - is in need of a new gardener. If you're interested in taking this over in 2017, please contact Jacky to discuss.
Friends Meeting House 19:20-21:30
The Transition Cambridge AGM is a chance to celebrate a year of achievements and plan forward to our 6th year. Anyone that's been a part of our groups over the past year is welcome to join.
As well as the official business of electing officers and presenting our financial accounts, there will be short presentations about what we get up to across our different interest areas, a chance to shape the direction of TC in the coming year and of course, network and connect over a customary slice of cake and a cuppa.
One of the largest sources of greenhouse emissions is the way we get out energy. Through actions like reducing energy consumption, purchasing more efficient equipment and installing renewable energy infrastructure, we can move towards a low carbon future.
The energy group is your place to find tips to save energy, get involved in awareness-raising across the area or help set-up renewable energy co-ops. Look out for upcoming events in the newsletter for your chance to get involved.
As many of you know, we run on a shoe-string budget, and we generally find that we can do a lot with very little money at all.
However, there are some basic costs we have to meet each year, and we'd be very grateful for your donations.
We have set up a local giving account as an easy way to donate, or you can donate via bank transfer or cheque (details here). Donating via Local Giving means that your donation can also have Gift Aid applied. Thank you!
