It’s not just due to spring but changes are afoot here too – and you could be part of it. There are some jobs on offer and and one year programme if you want help to make change happen. Around and about with innovation in London, compost in Switzerland, flowers in Copenhagen and a cafe award in Fishguard. Reflections on sleeplessness, starting a community train company and economics that works for everybody. Lots of great great audience feedback from screening Tomorrow – still time for you to give your community a boost. Plus a book review and Totnes TT celebrates it’s 10th birthday.
