Who we are

Faced with uncertain energy prices and climate change, our response is to build a stronger, more versatile community a community with the capacity to adapt to whatever happens and where we can be happy and healthy.

Transition Cambridge joins the hundreds of Transition towns across the UK, and the thousands of them around the world in an effort to make more resilient and sustainable communities. To see how it all started, have a look at the Transition Guide.

Saturday 22nd September: CropShare - Be an organic farmer for a day

Willow Farm, Lode, Cambridge, CB25 9HF 09:30-16:00 add to google calendar
Join Transition's community farming project, CropShare, to experience life as a real organic farmer for a day...

This week we will be having fun helping out on the farm from 10:00am to 12.30pm, and 2pm to 4.00, sharing a lunch and a chat in between. You can join us for the morning or afternoon session, or both.

Family friendly, everyone is very welcome! See our website to get a flavour of what workdays are like. It will be good healthy fun, a great chance to see our local countryside, and how food is grown on a large scale.

Please fill in this form if you would like to take part, and we'll also help you arrange travel to the farm.

Hope to see you soon!

Saturday 22nd September: Cambridge Repair Cafe

Cambridge Repair Cafe is back! We kick off an autumn of local Repair Cafes with an afternoon of repairing, a sewing skillshare and a draught-proofing workshop at St Andrews Hall, Chesterton.

Please book ahead if you have an item to be repaired - we can fix all sorts of things, but if we know what the problem is in advance, we're more likely to be able to help. We're open from 1pm to 4pm. Admission is free, but donations to help cover our costs are welcome. More...

There is generally a group of us in the garden on Sunday mornings from 10.30 am to 12.30 or later, and people are also coming and going during the week - you don't even have to garden just come and enjoy the space! More...

Meet the Energy Group

An important part of our response to climate change is to contribute as little as possible to it, and a large part of that is weaning ourselves off fossil fuels. The energy group aims to do whatever we can to save energy and to generate renewable energy to replace fossil fuels .

Over the years we have distilled a lot of online advice about this which you can use and learn from. There tips on things you can do at home, insulation, renewable energy like heat pumps and wood stoves and, since climate change is going to bring us warmer weather, on how to keep cool. Look at our homepage for details of the next meeting or get in touch.

Volunteer Opportunity: Can you help with our year end Financial Accounts?

Is there someone reading this who can independently examine Transition Cambridge's financial accounts? As a voluntary organisation running largely on good will and very little cash, there really isn't much to do- barely a page of bank statements for a whole year! But it would tick the box of transparency and best practice to have a person with some experience of accounts auditing to check our figures. If you can help, please contact Jacky.

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, 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!
