ECO tip of the week

Close all curtains and blinds at dusk to retain heat in the home.

Eco Congregation

The parish churches in Buchlyvie and Gartmore have registered as Eco-Congregations, recognising that, for Christians, caring for the Earth is a proper response to a loving creating God. Eco-Congregation Scotland provides a variety of helpful resources and ideas. Just before Lockdown we had put out a survey, enquiring about measures to reduce home energy use, to start to gauge interest and build a bank of people who would share their experiences, good or bad, with others considering similar measures. 


As conditions allow we would hope to arrange community events or workshops on such topics as upcycling, growing food, repairing and altering clothes, home composting, reducing your carbon footprint, cooking with leftovers or maybe even toolshare schemes or swapshops. To do this we need a small team of people concerned about environmental issues, from any church or none. Events would be for the whole community so the wider the representation the better. If you would be happy to be involved in any way please get in touch by using the church email address.

Let washing up water cool down, then pour onto a
bed or into a pot. Plants are needing all the extra
water they can get.


There’s still time to plant a courgette or marrow
plant on top of a finished compost heap - it will be
very happy.
