I am passionate about conserving this planet and all its inhabitants. We need to wake up to the fact that an industrial, market driven society that has no regard for our environment or community in which we live is on a path of destruction for the benefit of a few very wealthy people in an unhealthy society that does little for the majority. Over the last few years I have been living on a narrow boat in a lovely community of like minded people from all walks of life. I love it!
