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.

Daily Bread Community Garden

Transition Cambridge's refurbished raised beds have been lovely this summer, providing passing customers with tasty broad beans, tomatoes, spinach, courgettes, herbs and strawberries and attracting lots of butterflies. Nadia from the Daily Bread Co-op helped with watering and care for the beds over the summer (and took this beautiful picture of a courgette flower) and Meg from TC planted, weeded and kept the grass short with shears. Now winter is nearly here, the beds have been replanted with a mix of broad beans, onion sets and some mustard to dig in as green manure. The strawberry plants and herb bed have been weeded and mulched and left to spring into life again next year. Go enjoy! More...

Transition Cambridge AGM

The AGM was held last week. About 15 of us gathered in a pub and celebrated the many and wonderful achievements of the past year. These included the winter online talk series, and the collaborations with other local groups including the Cambridge DEAG, the Web of Resilience and the proposed What If Shop/Climate Emergency Hub. Anna was reelected as Chair, Nicola as Secretary and Sam as Treasurer. The officers were all thanked for their work over the last challenging year and everyone hugely enjoyed being together again in person. Minutes will be available soon.
