Profile Information

Welcome! FierySpirits is for activists and professionals who are building vibrant, resilient rural communities. Tell us a little about why you'd like to join?
Learning from others and passing it on is at the heart of making real change happen, for me. People learn & change from other people showing the way, inspiring and giving down-to-earth examples.
This is the first social/professional networking site I've heard of that seems worth joining - it was Nick Wilding's name that did it!
About Me (areas of expertise/interest I can share)
I'm working voluntarily to help people cut carbon & fuel bills, through the Household Energy Service run by Light Foot Enterprises, on the Welsh/English border. I also work as a consultant for an ethical, employee owned company, Resources for Change. I help rural and urban social enterprises with business planning, and carry out lots of community engagement work, especially in natural resources.

Hi Helen, great to meet you too, came away inspired by the discussions at Hill Holt and then had Catherine down here at Eden talking about her work, follwed by Kirsty and Kate today running a Community Land Trust event.

Love to hear about the landscape partnership work as we are looking at the options for a project based around the clay country here. Be good to talk further.

I will send you details of my lovely welsh cob breeder directly, not really part of the fiery spirits conversation!

Hi Helen
BIG welcome into FierySpirits! Exciting to rekindle a connection that has been dormant for way too long.... you'll see from my pic. that Tara and I have been joined by a wee man called Eisean in February 2008. Lots more news besides but in the meantime, don't hesitate to tell me what you think about this site especially views on whether it was worth joining after all! And looking forward to hearing something more from yourself. In face, I've just had an idea... there is a monthly e-news bulletin that I produce (archive issues are available via the front page of the site). How would you fancy writing a 'guest editorial' as a newbe? Just giving impressions of the network etc., a couple of paragraphs and an opportunity to showcase your work a little... Well, maybe that's a bit full on for a first hello after a few years but if you like the idea let me know...
Best for now and let's try to meet at some point!
Nick
