Welcome to Peebles CAN

FREE home energy checks

Our current CCF project aims to save you energy and money by conducting a simple, FREE energy survey of your home. Our focus is on suggesting simple solutions that will cost little or no money to implement, with no pressure to follow this up. All advice is impartial.

Energy Fair & Exhibition

Come along to our Peebles CAN Energy Fair & Exhibition on Wednesday 29th March 2017 10am-2pm at the Burgh Hall in Peebles.

Volunteers

Peebles CAN always welcomes volunteers to help maintain the community garden - and enjoy the delicious produce grown there.

As a response to the Coronavirus outbreak we now offer One to One volunteer sessions and you can tailor a time and gardening session to meet your individual requirements. If you think you have anything to offer, please get in touch.

The community garden also works closely with the local youth group and high school to help young people. The Year of the Young People award supports young people to develop their skills and learn about healthy eating and local produce.

To find out more please email heather@peeblescan.org

Skill Share Upcoming Events

Peebles CAN is delivering "skill share" workshops in our yurt at the community garden. 

The skill shares are open to everyone, and are informal sessions to learn new things and share ideas. You can take part as a participant or as a leader - we are always on the look out for people to share what they know. 

Themes for skills sharing events include food, craft, art, IT skills, social media, phone applications, DIY, upcycling, photography, mindfulness - anything at all you are interested in!

Our upcoming Skill Share Events 

Held at the Peebles CAN Community Garden, behind Victoria Park Day Centre on Kingsmeadows Road

NOTE - All our planned skill shares have been postponed during the lockdown.  We will be up and running as soon as we are allowed to do so.  Keep safe everyone and see you soon.
