New section on energy

We have created a new Energy section on our website bringing together the resources that were developed by the Esk Valley Community Energy Group with resources from our Green Open Homes events.

Energy is one of Moor Sustainable’s key themes as the reduction of energy use and the generation of renewable energy are key to reducing our carbon footprint.

Visit our projects page to see the energy related projects that the Moor Sustainable team has undertaken.

To find out what you could do, look at our pages introducing the options and showing ways in which people in the area have reduced their use of energy and how people are generating energy locally:

Hunt for Herbs

Herb collection AprilOur new Hunt for Herbs project aims to encourage people along or near the route of the Esk Valley Community Railway line to investigate the use of herbs, both wild and cultivated. We will be exploring the use of herbs in the past and the benefits of growing more herbs in the future so that people will be inspired to find out more to help maintain and develop the environment of the Esk Valley. We will be creating a project page over the next few weeks.

The project is funded through the Land of Iron programme.
