Come and learn about keeping your home warm

On Saturday 19th January Transition Buxton will be holding a course on saving energy in your home.  Although the course is primarily intended for people wishing to conduct energy surveys it could also be of interest to anyone who cares about the environment – and keeping warm!  The course will be in the Poole’s Cavern School Room and will run from 10 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon with a break for lunch (and, of course, Poole’s Cavern Café serves some excellent meals).  You can read more about our heat surveys by clicking here.

If you think you might be interested in attending please get in touch with Charles Huff on contact@transitionbuxton.co.uk or call him on 0203 290 7227.


WELCOME TO TRANSITION BUXTON

QuestionMark
 
Q: Why should we care?
A: Because climate change and depleting resources will make our lives increasingly difficult …
unless we start to change the way we live now.

The idea of Transition is for people to work together with others on projects that will help the community to thrive even as we adapt to cope with fluctuating energy prices and climate change.

Anyone who lives or works in Buxton and the surrounding catchment area can be a member of Transition Buxton CIC – the Application form is here. We are happy to accept donations from members and  supporters, see the Funding and Donations page for more information.

We have groups working on a range of projects – a community orchard, a floating solar array, a home energy scheme, producing more food locally, encouraging better use of public transport and cycling – browse our site to find out more.

For more information about why we need to do this, check out the Oil Dependency and Climate Change pages.


The Serpentine Community Farm – We won!

The Council were wanting to relocate the farm so they could apply to build houses on the land.  Now The Council have withdrawn their plans for sell off, and given lease whilst we discuss the long-term future.

Three years ago this land was derelict.  Since then, volunteers have brought this disused Council plant nursery in the heart of Buxton back to life. They have grand designs for its future. They already demonstrate good horticultural practice, develop skills and confidence, offer a therapeutic setting for people of all ages and abilities, grow produce, provide education and training, and organise events accessible for all.
