Wow, excellent! I'd be really interested to help out with that if you need people.... I'm a qualified trainer for horticulture if that helps?

Hi Matt, how's it going, well done to you and Caz for the Powerdown course, more power to you!
I heard on the grapevine (the West Cork Gossip actually) that you were involved in setting up facilities for processing/sales of local produce, is that right? I'd be very interested to know more, and to help out if needed :)

Hi there, hope all is well with you!
We are getting ready here in scarriff to do our first transition town event on the 29th of may and I thought it owule be great to get some info from other transition towns to display on the evening to give people a sense of the bigger picture...I'm looking for anything, leaflets, posters, articles, photos etc. and I am very happy to create a display of irish transition towns that can be dupklicate and become a resource for everyone..
how does that sound? Would you have any material to contribute?? Since the event is on the 29th time is of the essence,if you have anything in hard copy you can send it to my address Laccarowe, feakle, co. clare, if is via e-mail it's better to mail it to bob wilson (also a member here) since I don't have broad band.
Thank you for your help,
Love
Tatiana
