It will soon be a year since the consultation meeting (November 18th) which saw the creation of Cambridge Sustainable Food. It’s time to celebrate!

In honor of the occasion Duncan Catchpole of Cofco is kindly hosting a party at his base in Haslingfield – there will be live music from Beth Walthew and her band Makossa, dancing, delicious local seasonal food from Curly Kale Café and a bar selling local beer (and soft drinks). A suggested donation of £10 is asked to cover the cost, which includes food. Duncan’s last party at the venue was a wild success, so book your tickets now!

Of course there will also be news of what Cambridge Sustainable Food has achieved over the year and what the plans are for 2015, but the focus will be on celebration! Find out more here.

Volunteers needed
We need people to help with various things on the day of the party, so please let us know if you can help: preparing the party space, stewarding, helping with parking.

CCF membersSt Andrews Hall

2015 will be a crucial year for the climate movement and for CCF. Please save the date (Saturday November 15th) and join us for our very first CCF supporter conference. We’re making ambitious plans for next year and we really need your help.

The conference will be an opportunity to hear first hand CCF’s draft plans for 2015, for you to tell us which direction you’d like CCF to go and for all of us to figure out together how we can really pack a punch. We will also have special guest Harry Huyton head of Climate and Energy at the RSPB, who (like CCF) are members of the UK Climate Coalition. Harry will be speaking about the UN climate conference in Paris in 2015 and plans for campaigning for the coming year. And there’ll be a chance to socialise too, with a big communal bring and share lunch.

We’d love to see you all there. We need you now more than ever to come and share your thoughts, and help us plan for 2015! Please email alana@cambridgecarbonfootprint.org to let us know if you can attend.

Cambridge, CB1 1EH  

For most people in the UK, Christmas dinner is all about the turkey, the ham and the gravy. But what do you cook if you are expecting a vegetarian guest? Offering roasted veg with Bisto can be a bit dull but finding delicious alternatives to the traditional favourites can be a daunting prospect for some people.

Cambridge Carbon Footprint to the rescue! Come along to our Vegetarian Christmas Cooking Workshop and we’ll provide you with ideas for starters and mains and cook some scrumptious recipes together! If there’s time at the end of the evening we will all sit down together to devour the food, if not, please bring along a container in which to take food home.

There is a suggested donation of £10 per person and a limit of 10 people, so make sure you book quickly!

To book, please email your contact details to: info@cambridgecarbonfootprint.org or call 01223 30184
