"Hi - thanks Osbert and Nick. The danger of not just a parochialist but a right-wing nationalist embracing of 'localism' and 'food localism' is very real. I thinbk there is a danger with some of the Dark Mountain / Deep Ecology /…"

See attached here: FifeDiet carbon report 3 August.docWe took a sample of our membership (just over 100 of 1200) and enrolled them as 'research volunteers'…See More

Hi Mike

Brilliant to be catching up with your posts and to see your new persona - wish there had been a way to integrate all your previous material, och well.

I'm really keen to drive traffic into the groups on the site - eg where you've already been posting - so it's good to see your 'cow' pic coming up in the new widget on the front page. be good to have a cuppa sometime to touch base in any case and great if you're able to keep cross fertilising into fieryspirits...

best

'orright me beauty?

Guess who's finally coming to Scotland?

Children in Scotland have booked me for their 'Sense of Place' (haven't I heard that term somewhere before?) conference in Inverness on Tues 8th June
They are paying my travel and accomodation but no fee, so it would be really good if I could cobble-up some paid work while I'm in the Big Country.
I need to be in London on Friday 11 (keynote at LSBU 'Place Based Learning' conference - which is paid) but it would be great if I could find a couple of schools in Scotland interested in some storytelling demonstration lessons and staff training for Weds 9th and Thurs 10th June.
Don't suppose you have any contacts or ideas that might bear fruit here? Got plenty of blurb and flyers to impree 'em if necessary...
oll an gwella

Will


cheers me dears
