Maybe you met Laura in the video on our homepage? Laura is one of our 40+ members who drive an E-cocar only when they need to. Most of the time she rides her bike. Laura is co-founder of School Farm CSA which provides Totnes, Dartington and the wider community with veggie boxes and access to high quality, ecological and local food. All of their produce is grown on site, using ‘no dig’, organic growing techniques.
Those shoes are clean… Georgia NEVER sits like this when she’s in an E-cocar, honest. She and her friends occasionally get picked up from school in Lydia, the hybrid, or Xena, the Aygo, by one of her E-cocar-member-parents. Four teenagers + bags, no problem.
Gillespie Yunnie Architects
Architect of the Year in the 2014 RIBA South West Awards, Gillespie Yunnie Architects deliver exciting, viable solutions within sensitive, constrained and historic locations. Their office is located at Shinners Bridge, on the edge of the Dartington estate, which is a delightful bike ride from Totnes station. Being an E-cocars member gives the staff the flexibility to use a car for client or site visits during the day whilst commuting by train, bus or bike. See what they do here.
Transition Town Totnes
Transition Town Totnes (TTT) is a dynamic umbrella organisation consisting of different theme groups, for example food, building and housing, business and the local economy, and with over 20 local projects. It is self-organising, mainly volunteer operated, and community-led. Projects are developed by interested members of the community coming together to make them happen. Sometimes TTT folks give presentations or attend meetings in Exeter, Tavistock, Wadebridge or Plymouth and that’s where E-cocars can come in handy… the Aygo is parked on Fore St., right outside TTT’s office – how convenient is that!
