10Mar2013: How to run your house on free energy

10Mar2013: How to run your house on free energy

Sunday 10th March 2013
Cottage Farm, Jacobstow, Cornwall
Open Day

Winners of the Small Scale Renewable Energy Scheme Award, sustainable Farmer of the Year finalists in the national BBC Food & Farming Awards and Cornwall Sustainability Awards, we are holding another Open Day to show our visitors why and how we live and farm with near zero use of fossil fuels and how you, too, may be able to benefit from much lower energy bills.

As part of the National Superhomes scheme (www.Superhomes.org.uk) and as part of the national Climate Week, Cottage Farm will again be opening its doors to the public to explain what we are doing, why and how.

Cottage Farm is an organic sustainable farm raising native breeds and selling produce locally. It is powered by renewable energy with near zero use of fossil fuels, having reduced its carbon emissions by over 100% (as assessed by the Cornwall Sustainable Building Trust) and practicing carbon neutral living and farming. We are also actively engaged in the Transition Movement process.

Visitors will be able to see and ask questions about
· the various energy saving steps taken
· the various methods of renewable energy generation employed and its benefits
· the organic farming methods, localised sustainable food production and carbon free distributions of farm produce.
· We may also discuss the Superhomes charity and the Transition Movement and its contribution to increasing local resilience in North Cornwall and also our motivations and the prospects for the future.
