Hi Uplyme (well at least the online bunch) been doing a bit of reading on the "transitions initiatives" see here of more: https://www.transitionnetwork.org

I was wondering if there would be anyone else interested in this venture? To become a part of this initiative, any local group has to have a minimum of 4/5 persons prepared to be committed to help run this enterprise. There is also a need to understand the whole idea behind it all as well. see here for more on that: https://www.transitionnetwork.org/support/becoming-official

if there are any like minded individuals out there please post your thoughts on this or you can pm me if you would rather.

over to you...

According to your website link Seaton, Thornecombe. Bridport, Honiton etc are already involved in this.
Sounds a fascinating concept.
I'd love this to develop further locally; hope more and more people get interested.

All good stuff, but isn't this basically what Greenpeace has been doing for decades ? Why not join them instead of diluting effort by forming another organisation ?

Hi, this is totally different to greenpeace, so no dilution there.

it is a local initiative to help us all overcome the effect of transitioning from a growth based industrial economic model fueled by debt & fractional banking practices to a post growth / peak oil economic model, based on sound banking / economic practices. there is even scope to issue our own type of barter currency / money based on hours of work / value of exchange.

So I pose the question again, any one other than "martyn" interested?

over to you....

I think sometime ago we'd had a conversation about a "local market"in / at the village hall / the village green, perhaps this might be the first thing we could do, perhaps a show of interest from local producers of fruits, vegetable, honey, crafts, etc...

over to you uplyme...

Hi Geoff,
I too have just started beekeeping (after years of reading, planning, courses) I was given a local (within 5 miles) swarm, this is their first year, they are going great guns! (been installed since the end of may) filled 2 Warre ( http://warre.biobees.com ) boxes with comb already & the top most box is filling nicely with capped off honey. Who know's I might be able to harvest some this sept...Wink

anyone else got produce to sell?.....
