Who are we?

The Teme Valley Environment Group (TVEG) is based in and around Knighton, Powys. We are part of a growing grassroots movement exploring the major changes required for communities to adapt to a society without access to cheap energy derived from fossil fuels. Rather than a cause for depression, we feel this is an opportunity to make life better for all of us while enjoying ourselves at the same time. We are an open group and welcome people of all ages and abilities who are concerned about local sustainability and the environment. Our current concerns include local food production, renewable energy supply, transport, health and wellbeing, housing and livelihoods.

Please join us by contacting Penny Nicholson on info@tveg.org.uk and become part of a creative and inspiring movement. Or just turn up at one of our regular open meetings and we’ll be pleased to see you!
