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.

At our AGM we will be sharing out the jobs, looking at what we have been doing in the last year, and what it has cost us, and sharing ideas for the coming year. One of the possibilities is to work towards becoming a "Transition Town", and we will watch a short video on Transition to help us make our minds up. Do come and help us answer the question: Should Abingdon become a Transition Town? Would it be good for us as a community? Fun, even?
The Carbon Cutters TEA TIME event on Saturday was a great success.
The participants brought "what they had" - and created an excellent meal
which everyone shared. Some people brought fresh items, others had a
clearout of their cupboards, and some brought things that were surplus
from their weekly shop.
Eleven Carbon cutters worked together - were reminded of the
benefits of such traditional items as Lard and Tapioca - even if we did
lean that Tapioca comes from Malaysia.
Keep your eyes
and years open for information about future events like this - and in
the mean time think about ingredients in our cupboards that you might
need either help or encouragement in using up.
Dan Betterton of Cultivate will be bringing the Veg Van to Northcourt Centre, Northcourt Road, Abingdon tomorrow morning and every Friday, 8.15am to 9am. Get up early and grab your local fresh veg, fruit, eggs and bread before it all goes!
