14TH November 2018, 7-9pm
Royal Seven Stars, Totnes
Guest Speaker – Guy Watson
Riverford Organics’ Founder and Farmer
At this year’s AGM we’re celebrating our 11th year with guest speaker Guy Watson who’ll be talking about Ownership – is it time for something different? This free event is open to members and general public so you can bring friends and family too.
We exist to benefit our community, to create renewable energy projects that deliver low cost energy from local sources, backed by local investors.
As well as reporting on the past year’s activities we’ll also be looking ahead to 2019 – set to be a landmark year. After recent feasibility studies, we’ll soon be offering opportunities to invest in upcoming local schemes, including a Solar Schools Share Offer, the anaerobic digester at Old Parsonage Farm on the Dartington Estate and the new Staverton Hydro – the culmination of 4 years’ work with our partners Fishtec and consultations with the local community. This will involve repairing the weir for the Environment Agency and also be repairing and maintaining the leat itself, taking it from just a tiny trickle to a healthy supply of water fit to keep the hydro plant going.
We believe in ethics and sustainability in business and that there’s a new, kinder way of doing things to benefit local people, the local environment and local economy. These are transformative times worthy of celebrating and Totnes is once again ahead of the curve. We hope you can join us for an inspiring evening.
