Hi Sue.Thanks for your message. I'm currently recovering from illness, so can't set up a food coop - yet. For now my participation will have to be mostly via the website, but I look forward to getting more involved in the future. Jackie
Hi Sue - thanks for the welcome. I would be interested in anything gardening/wildlife/foraging that may come along. Unfortunately, I work Tuesday to Thursday but am available in the evenings (now they are lighter) as I finish about 5. Also I'm available Fridays but not usually over the weekends or Mondays. Look forward to hearing from you. Jane
Hi Sue, thank you for the welcome. Sorry I haven't replied sooner, I am fairly new to this. A forgaing outing would be brilliant, I am just a beginner but I am very keen to learn more and get out and about seeing what we can find. Are there many others interested? Hope to hear from you soon, sorry I missed the allotment meet earlier today, hope it went well.
Still trying to book a room Sue. But, it would potentially be Wednesday the 30th that I'd have time in Tunbridge Wells. Would you email me at susiej(dot)gray(at)yahoo(dot)com? Then I can get you my telephone number? thanks a bunch! susie
I am not in Tunbridge Wells at the moment. I am still piecing together what life will look like for me while i'm in England. In generally, i'll be in the Tunbridge Wells area intermittently. Depending on many factors.
I may be in town next Wednesday, November 29th and would enjoy meeting yourself or any Transitioners for tea? Otherwise, I do hope to be able to attend some other events while I am here!
Thanks for the welcome Sue, I am mainly interested in getting this vital rail link reopened as it will bring so many benefits to Tunbridge Wells including a significant reduction in road traffic right across the area. There is a campaign which is working hard to achieve this which I belong to, see http://www.wealdenline.co.uk and http://www.bml2.co.uk Thanks, Richard
Thank you for the welcome Sue. I'm definitely up for the allotment meetings/work and look forward to meeting people. Also looking forward to sharing ideas - one of my bits of wisdom learnt last year was that courgette plants will take over the world given half a chance :o)
I must admit my motivation for joining this group is the gauge interest amoungst gardeners for my locally coppiced Hazel rods for Bean poles and Pea sticks. I would like to supply any allotment holders who need bean poles or pea sticks, and would like to buy a more eco friendly product (than bamboo which has been shipped halfway around the world).
Thanks Sue - and for my first message! The bringadish looks quite wonderful;I have been mullling over such a celebration of people and places for ages - and here it is alive and well -a real co-incidence.
I was thinking about films after the open CORE meeting the other night. I wondered whether you'd ever shown "No Impact Man"? It's about a guy (and his initially reluctantly co-opted family) who tries to live without impacting on the environment for a year. See here http://www.dogwoof.com/film/noimpactman/
Dogwoof are keen for people to be able to screen independently of big cinemas, so we may even be able to get a free copy for a public screening....
hi Sue thanks for your message. at this time I cannot make meetings or any contribution at all I am afraid. [owing to work and family - its just all very busy at the moment]. however, will keep in touch nigel
