Transition Cambridge 'traditionally' takes a summer break in August. You can still join in with projects like Empty Common Community Garden on Sunday mornings (info here); Cropshare on some Saturdays (info here). And if you want to publicise an event, please submit it here. The last Bulletin before the break will be at the end of July, and we'll be back early in September with fun community sustainability events including Repair Cafe's, Circular Cambridge Festival, talks and more!
Empty Common Community Garden 10:30-12:30 add to google calendar
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...

At this meeting the main topic will be Co-benefits - how to 'sell' low carbon retrofit and behaviours. For example is it worth pointing out the health benefits of cycling or a vegetarian or low meat diet (or do you disagree). Also, insulation brings greater comfort as well as energy savings (or you do you have counter examples). For everyone, reducing waste generally saves money - or is it too much hassle? What do you think are the side-benefits that most add to the appeal of sustainable living?

Join Transition Cambridge volunteers for an informal networking /social meetup and chit chat about our media activities... This is the first in a series of regular gatherings and we are especially interested in welcoming newcomers who can join our bulletin writing and media outreach team. No writing experience necessary - just bring yourself, your ideas and your curiosity! Contact Jacky to find out more or just turn up.

October is the time for our AGM - to review and celebrate what we've been doing over the last year. It's a great opportunity to catch up with friends and hear more about the projects we're excited about and plans we're hatching. All are welcome to come along; however only members can vote (a member is someone who's done some volunteering in the last 12 months). As we're a volunteer organisation, donations are welcome. There will be tea and, of course, cake!
