From seed to solar
Hello! In this episode, the inspiration is provided by Energy Garden, a co-operative which has helped over 130 communities create gardens at overground railway stations across London. Not only has this re-connected residents with nature and food growing, increasing local pride in the process, it’s also improved the wellbeing of passengers plus delivered a whole range of community benefits valued at an estimated £11.35 of social return for every £1 spent.
Join Agamemnon Otero, CEO of Energy Garden, and Charlotte Whitfield, Customer Service Director for Arriva Rail London, to discover how they’ve grown community energy and their keys to success, including how they’ve utilised solar power as an income generator to fund this innovative work.
