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.
