Twelve enthusiastic interns had a great start to the Energy Garden internship last week. The internship is paid and lasts 50 hours, spread out over 2 months. The first week was spent learning about the energy system and renewable technologies, and had a more practical side when the interns made solar panels at a workshop in Brixton Remakery. They also learnt about different sorts of sustainable business models and local currency, and even had the chance to spend the Brixton pound! Coming sessions will revolve around community gardening and food production, as well as energy efficiency and communications. Well done to all involved and watch this space for similar internship opportunities in the future!
