Remember we’ll be on Kingfisher FM again each week chatting about Transition and various other green issues in the metro. We’ll let you know when that starts up again and what we’ll be covering.

Alrighty then… so this year we want to see big change in our city, but its going to require all hands on deck. Its time to get more involved, to take all those great ideas you’re sitting on and put them into motion. Lets make some big leaps in building local resilience in 2013!
Cheers!
