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!

Sat 9th - Sun 24th May: Sustainable Restaurant Showcase

various
As part of the Eat Cambridge Festival, 11 eateries (from restaurants and cafes to a pop-up and a street food van) have been inspired to each offer a special sustainable dish for the duration (9-24 May). You will find vegan dishes, sustainable fish and, for meat-eaters, game and normally neglected cuts of meat from respected local sources. The cost of the dishes will be in line with the restaurant's normal price-range and you'll need to book in the normal way for each restaurant. This Sustainable Restaurant Showcase has been organised by Cambridge Sustainable Food. We are very keen for as many people as possible to ask for the sustainable dishes, as we hope this will be a local restaurant trend that will grow and grow. You can see details of the participating restaurants on CSF's website, join the event on Facebook and use the #EatCSF hashtag on twitter to share and show your support. More...
