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.
Peebles CAN is seeking volunteers to help maintain the community garden - and enjoy the delicious produce grown there.
The garden currently receives funding from Impact to support local volunteering opportunities. We are always looking to help new volunteers find their potential through a variety of roles. 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.
The community garden has launched a new skill sharing project to support people to share their knowledge and explore new interests. For more information please look at the updates on the left of this page.

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!

Thanks to everyone who came to our Ceilidh!!!
Thanks to everyone who came to our Ceilidh, we really hope you all had a fabulous evening dancing the night away. The night was a huge success and we raised just over £2,000. We rely on these fundraisers to ensure the sustainability of CAN and we will use this money to help us continue running our projects helping the communities in Peebles and the surrounding areas.
