I arrive home to find a magnificent box of vegetables in the kitchen. Red cabbage and onions, leeks and peppers, potatoes and, hidden in the leafy carrots, a few shiny red chillies. At first I think Karen must have signed us up to a veg box scheme, then remember that I gave a haunch of venison to some neighbours who have just started a small-holding.
Ive been dreaming about a more supportive community, sustainable economy, locally grown food and renewable energy but just discovered the transition network through reading 'the power of just doing stuff'.
We have been meeting since June 2012 at the Green Wood Centre Coalbrookdale, in the Ironbridge Gorge, where some of our members live. We also have a number from other parts of Telford, including the market town of Wellington.
