    Can we encourage as many as possible to sign and/or organise petitions - and if possible to attend the "Day of Action" at the Carmarthen Guildhall on Saturday 30th August at 10am.

    If the TTIP goes ahead, as is being discreetly negotiated at present, it will make billions for the US global corporations and ruin our society, economy and environment in the process.

Presteigne is buzzing

We had a fantastic seed swap at Presteigne farmers market last Saturday - a real buzz: lots more interest this year than previous - maybe something viral happaening as a result of our successful allotment project. The allotment site will have its first anniversary on 25th March , and there are all sorts of exciting plans for the coming year in the town.

The community-run Zero Waste project is due to be extended for at least another 6/12 months (forever, we hope, as it is so brilliant!)
We are in the initial stages of planning a Celebration of Local Food (this will be a big event ,so we are planning for summer 2012).

I am going down to Embercombe, Devon for a second time in a couple of weeks to do an intermediate 'natural' beekeeping, course with Phil Chandler so that I can really understand about top bar hives and maybe start to spread the word in these parts about the benefits.

More fruit and nut trees - walnut, quince and damson - were planted in the community orchard a couple of weeks ago. So Spring is warming up and things are looking GOOD !!!
