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.

Weds Feb 17th How to Farm for the Future

After our very successful meeting on How to Green our Homes, our next meeting will be a showing of Rebecca Hosking's fascinating film "A Farm for the Future".
This is very topical – Hilary Benn of DEFRA was in Oxford earlier this month promoting buying local food and eating seasonal veg. We are in the Hearth at St Ethelwolds as the Garden Room is booked. We hope to get several local farmers to view the film and join the discussion afterwards. Come early to get a seat!
And do print out a poster and put it up anywhere you know of.

PS Philip Waddy has very kindly let us have a copy of the slides from his talk "How to Green Your Home" on CD. This will be added to our eco-library and will be available to borrow at the next meeting. Let me know if you would like to borrow it before then.
