A local market is held in Hino town supporting local small businesses.
I talked about vegetarian and organic food scenes in Totnes, Totnes Market, Apricot Centre and Biodynamic farming, Schumacher College, Transition Town Totnes and Reconomy Project, Bioregional Learning, and how we can apply some of the things happening there in our town. Many key figures from our town gathered, including 2 members of the town hall, one member of the local parliament, a farmer who used to be a member of community-reactivating cooperator squad, a school teacher, a researcher at a university and members of the Local Network.
The Apricot Centre on Huxhams Cross Farm a biodynamic farm in Dartington Devon. There were some synchronistic incidents happened on this trip such as bumping into Satish Kumar when I walked into Schumacher College( he is often away) and meeting my Emerson College senior at my talk. And now this magazine article. Wow! It looks like this trip does have some meanings for me.
