Sustainable Backwell has been running since Dec 2009. We have three groups: energy, food & transport. Since our beginning we have put on the following events:
Two family cycle days.
Public energy meeting.
Food talks and evenings
Garden share scheme and plant/fruit/seed swaps.
Two apple pressing events.
Draft sustainable energy plan.
Insulation for a dozen homes.
We are planning: 6 week permaculture course, community wind turbine, bulk buy solar, further development of the website.
We’re always looking for more members, ideas and collaborating with other groups.
