Default I know this is probably insignificant right now,

but I've just set up a youth council in my village. A few of our main goals are to get an allotment up and running and to get the comunity working together.

Using the produce from local farmers and from the allotment we aim to set up a market in the village hall, to pump the money back into the community instead of vast supermarket chains.

Hopefully there will be a massive input from the primary school- Helping to maintain the allotment but at the same time learning about our environment in which we live and other key skills that may become valuable in the future.

Apparently there are massive government funds for youth councils- + bonuses if you plan on working alongside the environment. So I'm pretty happy

I just thought I'd post this as everything I hear lately is doom and gloom and is damn right depressing! Oo and i'll update this every month or so- to show if we have made any progress etc.


So yeah, Peace out!

Somerset! The land where grass is green, the girls are pretty and the cider makes Yatton paradise city!

Kingston symour is a nice wee little village too!

Hope you do really well and keep us informed.

Hi WorldAgape,

Well done for your work.

Believe me when I say that this type of work will be extrmely relevant and important in the future as the tendency is to move back to small holdings and organic fresh foods (crisis or no crisis, although with a crisis the move will be accelerated).

I also think that getting the local community working is fundamental as in my recent visit I was suprised by the lack of 'communication' between people in the UK.

Best of luck in your venture.

Best regards,

Steve
