What's On


A Zero Carbon Britain? Impossible ??

(Not a TTB Event)
On Wednesday 9th April a free, live broadcast event “Zero Carbon Britain” will be hosted at the Friends Meeting House in Dorchester from 6.30 to 8 pm. This is an opportunity to join the authors of controversial report Zero Carbon Britain – Rethinking the Future,  for an evening of practical solutions, safe futures and thinking big, and to explore what these solutions might mean for Dorchester.

The report's authors, co-ordinated by Paul Allen, a Climate Change Commissioner for Wales, say “our scenario demonstrates that we can rapidly reduce UK greenhouse gas emissions to net zero,  using only current technology ....We can do this whilst maintaining a modern standard of living, and meeting our energy demand at all times with 100% renewable UK energy sources”.

The event runs from 6.30 to 8 pm, followed by light refreshments. Entry is free. Copies of the report will be available, along with information about zero-carbon activities already happening in Dorchester.

The Friends Meeting House is in Holloway Road, Dorchester, DT1 1LF   Further information is available from Sally Cooke on 01305 267758 or greendor2012@gmail.com.

Green Drinks - 

The Tiger, Barrack Street, back room
Thursday  17 April from 8.00 pm

Join us for informal discussion on anything relevant to the cause - you can find out more, get involved, or just enjoy a drink and a chat. Hope to see you there. 

We will be in the back room as usual. Graham, the landlord, has promised us sandwiches on the house, so another reason for coming!



 


Raise the Polytunnel









Many thanks to everyone for the huge turnout, the brilliant enthusiasm and the teamwork in raising the polytunnel, replanting the allotment and moving all that woodchip.



Update 15 March: The plastic has now gone up, the doors remain to be fitted and then the laying down of beds. Watch this space.

Workshops continue every Saturday, with support from Washingpool Farm, Jacksons and Fruits of the Earth, who supply the food for lunch. From the 21st onward they will be at the Youth centre in Gundry Lane.
Arrangements for the exhibition on HOME in Bridport are now advanced.
