Charlbury Green Hub
We aim to promote a better understanding of our local countryside, food, energy, travel, and the wider implications for our planet's limited resources and climate change. We provide a list of things that can be shared by other groups or individuals in Charlbury so that we can work together better as a sharing community . . . and save money and resources in the process. Websites are always "work in progress" so come back regularly to see what's new.
Unfortunately, Cultivate has now closed their online shop and are very sorry to disappoint their many customers in Charlbury. However they are continuing with their mobile veg van in Oxford which operates Thursdays to Sundays.
The calendar below covers environmental/sustainable/ethical events happening in Charlbury and beyond. If you would like to offer a lift to an event outside Charlbury then please contact us and we'll flag it up.
