Volunteer vacancies

We really need some help with a few things at the moment, e.g. we're looking for an assistant treasurer while our treasurer is away for 2 months, and Romsey Community Garden is looking for two new coordinators. Also we're looking for someone to represent us on a new environmental coordination group in the city (working particularly with student/university groups). Interested? More info here or e-mail us to find out more!

Make a donation!

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!

The share offer for this community energy project right near Cambridge has been extended! The project is being set up by Andy Rankin of the TC Energy Group, Paul Robinson of Willow Farm (home of the TC CropShare project), and various other local people. Please support them if you can!

Forthcoming Transition Events

Tuesday 24th March: Skillshare on Fermented Foods

Ross Street Community Centre 18:30-20:15 add to google calendar
Join us for a fermented foods refresher evening where we'll discuss some common worries and problems with home fermentation and make a batch of fermented kraut together. Please bring a chopping board and kitchen knife you're comfortable using, a jam jar or small kilner (no bigger than .75l please!) If you have books or resources to share bring them along. Veg will be provided, this event is free but we ask for a small donation towards the cost of ingredients and room hire. All welcome, no fermenting experience necessary! Please email Jacky to book your place.

Wednesday 25th March: Sustainability Hacking

at Makespace 19:30-21:00 add to google calendar
The sustainability hacking group will be meeting at Makespace this month to work together and exchange ideas. If you'd like to join the group's mailing-list or are interested in the group in general, contact Toni to say hi.

Thursday 26th March: Transition social

CB2 Cafe, Norfolk Street 19:00-20:30 add to google calendar
This is a monthly Transition social so that we get to meet even if we usually come to different groups and so that we can have time together to simply relax, replenish, and get to know each other. Let Toni know if you are coming so we'll have a large enough space; also, please let her know if you think this is a great idea but prefer another day of the month in the next months, or if you have venue suggestions, or if you want to help to organise this event so it keeps going (one or two people to share organising would be very welcome!).
