Sharing house and/or pet minding for out-of-town holiday times

Hello T3 Friends,

We're looking to make contact with one or more people in the Thames area who have a pet or two, and who may be interested in sharing some house and/or pet-minding for short and medium lengths of time.

Our idea is to find people with a cat or dog or two, who need to have their pet(s) looked after while they're away on holidays - and who would be happy to look after our pet(s) when we're out of town, either for just a weekend…

This month T3 will be hosting an electric vehicle (EV) event at the Thames Civic Centre, where the general public will have the opportunity to drive an EV, talk to experts in the field and some current owners. This event has come about thanks to the determined effort of two of our local EV owner-enthusiasts John and Ian, who are also members of T3.

Odee's blog

I have a blog at:

In the past I have posted about solo gigs I've played but lately have posted about being locked out of Facebook and becoming vegan. Something I haven't really written about is finding a film called Cowspiracy which is now financially backed by Leonardo deCaprio. It talks about the affect of the beef and dairy industries on climate change. And here I was biking and hitching everywhere thinking it was… Continue

My New Urban Permaculture Project

Hi everybody,

I recently moved to Kerepehi, have bought a property in the village, a house with an 800 square metre section, and am beginning a project to transform it into an urban permaculture property.

I have set up a Facebook Page, and will be posting details of the project as it proceeds, with photos and comments about the issues that come up and how I go about resolving them. I expect this Page to eventually become a resource for urban permaculture, and a place to discuss…

Can we make Thames a "Foodscape"?

I've got the posting below from Facebook but I have no qualms copying it into T3. The Fruity Trees Carbon Offset project is a step in the right direction. Now let's rip up all those unused lawns that just add to the carbon emissions with whining lawnmowers and get growing food instead.
The photo below has been taken in "Geneva,…

PETER JOSEPH on The Big Questions

 Take the time to watch this video, more than once! It succinctly lays out the opposing values between our profit driven economic system, and an, environmentally/socially sustainable system. Peter Joseph has his head and his heart in the right place to help lay out a ground-plan for survival amongst the crazy downhill pursuits of our current economic and social fabric resulting in the environmentally and socially destructive spiral we find ourselves…

Its pretty straightforward.  When you sign up you'll be asked a few questions to make sure you're not a robot or some malevolent marketing tyrant somewhere exotic.

It will ask you for a picture - the site prefers JPG to all other formats.  However, you're not obliged to give one, and you'll be given a patchwork world image.  Quite fitting really!

If you've stopped getting emails from us (usually a news and events update every 2-3 weeks), its most likely you've changed your email address, and not told the site.  

You can update this by clicking on the little cog/Settings button (just above here, up by the photos of members) and this will take you to your page, and there's an option to change your email.
