About us.....

Abingdon Carbon Cutters is a Community Action Group formed to help reduce the carbon footprint of Abingdon in response to climate change, and to promote a sustainable and resilient lifestyle for our town as fossil fuel stocks decline. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month at St Ethelwold's House, which is here.

At some meetings, we have guest speakers to present various topics, and at others we discuss our own personal actions to address climate change. The group has a focus on encouragement, both of one another, and of the town community.

Eco-kitchen workshops

SEED-Group and COIN are delighted to announce Oxfordshire’s first, public eco-kitchen design and build workshops.

The five hour workshops are on Saturdays 18th and 25th April, from 10:30 - 16:00. The sessions are open to already eco aware or recently inspired people interested in making major or minor sustainable adaptations to the most carbon intensive room in our homes – the kitchen.

Developed in partnership between COIN and SEED-GROUP, the workshops will give people access to expert eco knowledge, design and skills. The sessions focus on providing attendees with a fresh and inspiring approach to design, and an insight into innovative materials that can be used.

Sally Harper, Founder, SEED-Group commented: “It can be really difficult for the eco aware consumer to get good advice and support, on the design and build of an authentic, sustainable eco kitchen. The workshops will help people make more considered, and confident, green living choices in the future. We’re really excited to showcase our demonstration eco kitchen and hope people leave inspired and better informed.”

  1. If anyone goes to this, I'd be really interested to hear some recommendations with regards energy efficient cooking.

    For some meals, we have a choice of microwave, electric oven or slow cooker......
