Vote now on Facebook for Cambridge Sustainable Food City!
Cambridge Sustainable Food City (CSFC, of which Transition Cambridge is a member) is one of a number of organisations which have been chosen by The Cambridge Building Society and the Cambridge News to go forward for a pubic vote to receive some money to support our work. The vote runs from noon today to noon this Friday (21st February), so we need to get our skates on! CSFC is an exciting new organisation which supports sustainable food - food that is good for us and good for the planet. Our current projects include Creating a Sustainable Food Hub for Cambridge, a physical space where many of our initiatives can find a base and come together - this is generating quite a buzz at the moment!
Please go to this Facebook page for more info, and here's the voting page where you can vote for Cambridge Sustainable Food City (note the link on the CBS facebook page doesn't work - there's another link in the comments below their post). Please also tweet and email and send this to your friends! As well bringing us money, doing well would raise our profile locally! More...

We celebrated our 5th birthday with a Summer Festival on 13th July, with a wonderful, family friendly afternoon of skillshare workshops, films, talks, childrens' activities and cake at the Friends' Meeting House, followed by a party in the Maypole pub. Here are some pictures of the event. A big thank you to everyone who helped out! (More details about the festival here.)
