Do you want to have fun, make friends, be active in the community - while doing your bit for the planet? Then come and join us!
We're part of the Transition Town movement, a community-led response to climate change and shrinking supplies of cheap energy. We run projects that reduce our carbon footprint while building local resilience, sustainability - and lots of friendships!
Here's what we're doing - come and join us!
We're divided into groups, each of which increases sustainability in a different way.
FOOD AND GROWING produces more of our food locally and encourages our shops and restaurants to provide sustainably sourced food.
THE FOOD MARKET brings locally sourced, low-carbon food to Crystal Palace.
ENERGY reduces the amount of energy we use and encourages the generation and use of renewable energy.
WASTE encourages creative waste reduction, recycling and upcycling.
TRANSPORT promotes low-carbon ways of getting to and around Crystal Palace.
LOCAL AND FAIR supports the local economy and encourages local traders to stock, and people to buy, goods that are produced locally, sustainably and fairly.
Each group runs different projects - check them out!
