We’ve been taking part in an initiative developed by University of Plymouth, Regen and South Dartmoor Community Energy called Imagining Alternatives – Feasts for the Future.
Building on the successful Community Energy Feasts Regen has organised in the past, the idea was to bring different groups together to reflect and celebrate together about what we’d like to see in our Utopian future of 2068.
Tamar Energy Community held its feast on Friday 15th February at the Lower Deck Cafe, URC, Russell Street in Tavistock and 28 of us enjoyed a Vegan Feast provided by Blue Skies Catering.
If you’d like to join us please book BY TUESDAY EVE- Feb 12th by registering here on Eventbrite.
An important aspect of the Feast was the shared table which has been handmade by Devon craftsman Barnaby Stone. Everyone had a chance to sit at the table and leave their mark by creating their own pattern. The table has been to five feasts and a different sort of wood was used for each.
We used this occasion to celebrate our achievements so far, chat about the future, and in particular how we can contribute to the challenges of significant carbon reduction by 2030 … Twelve Years!
A summary of our ambitions will be available shortly.
An enjoyable evening and a thought provoking project. More here.
Green Drinks is an opportunity to catch up and have an informal natter once a month, on the second Tuesday of each month. We generally meet at a local pub from 19:30 to 21:30.
In January 2019 we’re holding an Imaging Alternatives – Feast for The Future instead of our usual Green Drinks. If you’re interested there’s more information here.
This year’s Tamar Energy Fest will be held on Saturday, 24th November in Tavistock Town Hall. We’ll be open from 10:00 to 15:00 and look forward to seeing you there.
If you’d like to exhibit at the event and haven’t received an invitation please drop us an email.
This year’s Energy Fest will be highlighting the changes in the industry towards ‘smart’ … opportunities to improve the energy efficiency of homes, business and travel … and local generation and storage.
We’ll be showcasing our progress with our OpenLV pilot, our Energy Advice Service, our Bedford Cottages work and our Community Solar installations.
Do come and join us … it’ll be a fun and interesting day for exhibitors, visitors and volunteers alike.
