In the second of our new season of Tuesdays Till Two “Church of Ideas” talks, at 1pm on 23rd February, Cécile Faraud will be talking about the concept of the “Circular Economy” and how it can be applied to Peterborough to create a “Circular City”and how and why this can benefit everyone. She will also be talking about permaculture as an example of what can be achieved with urban agriculture.
As usual the church café will be open from noon, and will be selling a range of hot drinks, and home made cakes, scones, and other baked goodies with all profits from the café going to The Green Backyard. The talk will begin at 1pm and will be followed by an opportunity for discussion and questions. Admission to the talk is free, but a donation to help cover costs will be appreciated. The suggested donation is £3.
