Our Sustainability Projects
Whether you are interested in reducing your carbon footprint, or doing your bit for the environment doesn’t really matter – what does matter is working together to support families who can’t afford to live comfortably, businesses who want to support their local producers and people investing their hard earned time, effort and money in the place where they live.
Free business networking and business efficiency support.
Don’t miss out and book your place at the next The Efficiency Network to meet other businesses, network, share expertise and learn new ways to make the most of your resources and save money by becoming more efficient. These breakfast networking meetings are being held each quarter (Second Thursday of the Month in March, June, September & December) at The Angel Hotel in Market Harborough.
Each event consists of:
7.30am – 8am Informal networking, breakfast, tea and coffee
8am- 8.15am Takeaway TEN – Business Updates
8.15am – 8.45am Guest Speaker
8.45 – 9am Roundtable Experience Sharing & Business Card Swap
In June we look forward to welcoming guest speaker Martyn Wilkinson, Director of Ivy Link Partnership, to The Efficiency Network with his talk ‘The Good, The Bad and The Ugly’ an energy auditor’s view of business practices.
We are delighted to be opening Waterloo Community Garden to visitors on Open Farm Sunday for the third year in a row! We’ll have fun activities for all the family, including building a bug hotel and sowing seeds. Find out about what we do at the community garden and how we use the “no dig” approach.
Have a tour of Waterloo Cottage Farm and meet the free-range, pasture-fed animals (pigs, piglets, cows and sheep). There will also be pork pie making workshops to take part in.
A new business, Country Bumpkin Yurts, will be launching on the farm that day, so you can be among the first to see the yurts.
You can also find out about this event on Facebook.
