Carbon Conversations - free workshops to reduce your carbon footprint

Do you want to make some changes to reduce your carbon footprint and save money, but not sure how or where to start?

Join a group of local residents in a free series of 6 sessions to explore how small changes can make a big difference. You'll assess your own footprint, then together we'll look at home energy, transport and travel, food, consumption and waste to help you make changes that fit your situation.
To read personal blog posts by participants in our 2014 series of meetings, click here and scroll down the six posts (they are in reverse order..).

Sessions will take place every Monday, 7pm-9pm, from 22nd June - 27th July 2015, at 43 Woodfield Ave, SW16 1LE (near Tooting Bec Common).

Trained facilitators from Transition Town Tooting will run each session. Please email Jane at to join, express an interest, or ask any questions. 

The workshops are free.  We ask for a voluntary contribution of £14.00 per participant to cover the direct cost of “In Time for Tomorrow?” - the excellent Carbon Conversations handbook.

For more information, download our flyer.

All welcome - you do not have to be an expert!

Volunteering Opportunities - Join the Foodival Team

We're starting to plan Foodival 2015 - Transition Town Tooting’s sustainable food festival – and we’re looking for people to join the team.

Maybe you want to meet local growers? Or you love cooking? Maybe you’re looking for publicity experience? Or maybe you’d like to get involved on the day, making the event a success.

Whatever takes your fancy, we’ve got a role for you.  You’ll meet some wonderful people, have the chance to shape the Foodival, and of course, get to eat some delicious food!

Foodival takes place over the weekend of 12 – 13 September.

How can you get involved?

There are lots of ways you can get involved, either by joining the planning team, or helping out over the weekend.

Head over to the Tooting Foodival blog to see what we're looking for, and get in touch at if you're interested, or know someone who can help.

Or just pop in to the next planning meeting - Tuesday, 27 May, 7pm at the Kings Head on Upper Tooting Road.
