Welcome to Transition Scilly

Transition Scilly is a community led response to a future facing a climate emergency, less fossil fuels, and a need to equip the community with skills to be more resilient.

We run a Community Orchard on St Mary’s, campaign on environmental issues and give you information on how to reduce your carbon footprint.

In the face of a Climate Emergency we all need to show leadership to each other, our children, and to poorer countries how are likely to see the greatest impacts of the Climate Crisis – and least able to adapt to its negative consequences.

But there is a lot we can all do to make a difference. Let’s do it together.

Climate Emergency series

This is where we give practical and clear advice about how everyone can cut their carbon footprint and collectively help to address the Climate Emergence we are all facing.

Community Orchard

At Trenoweth on St Mary’s is our 1 acre Community Orchard. Here we grow over 70 trees, mostly apples but with some other fruit and nut trees in the mix.

It’s a lovely space, complete with benches made from local elm, which is really inviting to just sit and relax. This part of St Mary’s feels very much ‘out of the way’, quiet and really very special.

Electricity

One of the biggest cuts you can make to your carbon footprint, and the easiest, is to make an immediate switch to a 100% renewable electricity supplier.

There are lots of providers now, all offering prices that are not expensive and may even save you money on your current supplier. So go ahead and make the switch as soon as possible, and encourage friends and family to do the same.

A really painless way to help combat the Climate Emergency!
