We are a group of Hassocks, Hurstpierpoint, Keymer and Ditchling residents working to support a community response to climate change and shrinking supplies of cheap energy, building resilience and happiness in the process.
Why not join us? We have lots of fun, educational and creative activities, from ceilidhs, to eco fairs, talks, village markets, films and craft activities. See our Events page for more details.
Our AGM on Thursday 17 November featured inspirational talks from Rachel Carruthers of the West Sussex Waste Prevention Team, David Treadwell of the Mid Sussex Wood Recycling Project and Cat Fletcher, pictured, of the Brighton Waste House Team (among a number of roles).
