I am a political activist and campaigner wth an interest in ecology, bioregionalism and permaculture. I just completed my Permaculture Design Certificate and I'm hoping this will open up new opportunities for me. In the meantime I'm growing my own food on a small urban food garden near Birmingham city centre. I'm also in the process of starting an online Think Tank to help promote local solutions to globalisation including hemp farming, co-operatives, safer cycling initatives and forest gardens amongst other things. My ultimate aim is to help Birmingham and the West Midlands become a truly resilient bioregion while eliminating poverty.
