Hi all, I am new to the group. Exciting! I am an aspiring radical homemaker surrounded by lots of other city aspirants. My friend and colleague Spiri Tsintziras and I are writing a book called The Modern Village which showcases new, creative ways people are trying to build community at a grassroots level in cities around the world. We are looking at different ways we can share food, resources, space and fun. With this book we hope to inspire others by showing what can and is being done, so we'd love to hear from you if have a story to share or a lead about something wonderful and innovative happening in a local community. You can get in touch with me here or via the contact page at my website: www.myfanwyjones.com. Thank you.
