Transition in the 2010s
Energy - Food - Transport: Llandeilo ponders the future
This year's Transition Town Llandeilo AGM will be considering our way ahead as we move into the second decade of this century. In particular, we will be considering possible projects in the areas of Energy, Food and Transport. We will also consider how we can promote ourselves across the Tywi valley area as well as in Llandeilo itself.
The Transition Town Llandeilo AGM will be upstairs at The Angel, Llandeilo, at 7.30 pm on Monday 30th November.
Please come and help shape our future plans.

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
