Do you want to have fun, make new friends, be active in your community - while saving the planet? Then come and join us! We're part of the Transition Town movement in which communities are making the transition from oil dependence to a more sustainable future.
Why? Because the way we heat our homes, get around, and everything we eat, wear and use - all depend on energy from fossil fuels. Not only are these going to run out, but burning them is creating lethal climate change, and the rising cost of extracting them is creating economic crisis.
We need to change the way we live. Above all we need to build strong communities that can respond creatively to the challenges, and enjoy the fun and friendship of working together.
Here's what we're doing - come and join us!

Our aim is to increase local resilience and sustainability and to reduce our carbon footprint. We're divided into groups which address these aims in different ways:
FOOD AND GROWING by producing more of our food locally and encouraging our shops and restaurants to provide sustainably sourced food.
THE FOOD MARKET by bringing locally sourced, low-carbon food to Crystal Palace.
ENERGY by reducing the amount of energy we use and encouraging the generation and use of renewable energy.
WASTE by creative waste reduction, recycling and upcycling.
TRANSPORT by promoting low-carbon ways of getting to and around Crystal Palace.
LOCAL AND FAIR by supporting the local economy and encouraging local traders to stock, and people to buy, goods that are produced locally, sustainably and fairly.
Each group runs different projects - check them out!
