East Garston Eco Group (EGEG)

East Garston Eco Group (EGEG) was set up in 2022 and aims to help local people reduce their carbon footprint and protect our wonderful biodiversity.

We organised a Green Weekend in the Lambourn Valleyin April 2023 to celebrate the range of eco projects in our local area. We plan to run this event twice a year.

We have created several small biodiversity projects around the village hall, Millennium field and Friends meeting house and have just received a grant from Veolia to develop these areas further.

We produced an information sheet about recycling locally and worked with West Berkshire Council to provide a mini-recycling centre in the village.

We are in the process of starting up regular meetings for people who would like to work together to reduce our carbon footprint, using the WWF footprint calculator.

We would love to hear from anyone who would like to get involved. For more information, please follow us on facebook.com/lambournvalleyecocommunity or contact Penny or Pat at ecoeastgarston@gmail.com or 07768 981658.
