Transition Cambridge - Newcomers' Meeting

Monday 7th November

New to the Transition movement? Not sure where to start? Come along to our Newcomers' Meeting, where you can meet the people behind our groups and projects and hear first hand what we get up to.

Borrow a Vegetable Garden

Our Garden Share scheme matches 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.

Thursday 20th October: Growing Spaces Meeting

Venue to be announced soon

Cambridge has a wealth of public spaces, from small gardens and playgrounds to larger parks and commons. But would you like to see more fruit and vegetables growing in Cambridge's public spaces? We are looking for gardeners to help taking care of our street edible gardens!

Join the Growing Spaces project meeting as they plan new projects for the coming year. All welcome - gardening knowledge welcome but not required. Contact us for details of the address of this meeting and if you're interested in the project in general.

Join the Energy Group!

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.

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!

Volunteer vacancies
