Welcome Nick... it was great to get a sense of your work during the Stroud Communiversity - and there are LOTS of people who will be interested to learn from your experiences in this network - could I suggest you join the 'food' group, and also maybe post a blog saying hello with a brief overview of the foodhub project? I can then flag it to a few folk and we can see where things go... best for now
