  • TRANSATLANTIC TRADE & INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIP petition

    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.

Llanfyllin Workhouse Crew Hit BBC Wales

A great piece of news from Steve Jones, who many of you will know from the recent Introduction to Permaculture courses at Llandrindod.

Thought you all might be interested to know that the Workhouse and quite a few of the project crew are going to be featured on TV this month and next.. We made a 6 part series with BBC Wales in the summer, with the working title of 'Changing Lives - Going Green', all about transition to sustainable lifestyles. It was a lot of fun to make, and we think it will be very entertaining and funny, and at the very least a chance to laugh at us all.

The programme will be transmitted over 3 weeks (6 episodes in all), beginning on

Monday, 23rd Nov at 8.30 pm  on BBC1 Wales, with the next episode on Thurs 26th Nov at the same time. The remaining programmes will be shown on the Mon and Thurs at the same time over the two weeks after.

There will also be an omnibus shown each Sunday of these weeks although we haven’t been told at what time this will be yet, and also are unsure whether this will be BBC1 Wales or BBC2 Wales.

If you don'’t get BBC Wales on your digital service, you will be able to download it on the iPlayer, I believe.. so don'’t miss out - have a laugh at our expense! It was filmed in August in the build-up to the Green Fayre we held here and we hope it will help put the project on the map.
