An interesting development in the US... vertical greenhouse... thx +Sara Parmar for the share...
In Jackson, Wyoming, a company called Vertical Harvest recently began building a three-story vertical greenhouse. In addition to providing fresh tomatoes and greens to the local area, the vertical farm will also focus on employing people who have developmental disabilities and have trouble finding jobs elsewhere. “We’re replacing food that was being grown in Mexico or California and shipped in. We feel like the community’s really ready for a proj...

7 teachers... what about yours?
 This week has been one of reflection. I finally (after many years of searching) caught up with someone who had a huge influence over me in my late teens. Perhaps only now when the student is ready to learn have I been allowed to enter this persons life onc...

A quick listen. At 4.30 minutes he talks about 'community' and why we must save it. 
'Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell' is coming to Radio 4, with Sir John Hurt playing his old friend 'Jeff' Bernard. Sir John took James Naughtie on a stroll around old Soho of the 1950s, where life was populated by colourful characters:"Don't imagine it, simply because of the stories you hear, as some sort of crazy dissipation. There was a bit, sure. We knew how to get drunk. But at the same time the intellectual vigour was extraordinary. Feverish conver...

Community News  - 
 
The newsletter from the office of +Richard Harrington for this month... shall we see if we can get the Save the Red Lion Pub in his list next month? ... 
Four trains an hour on the Overground to come! I recently met with Mike Stubbs, the MD of London Overground, to discuss improvements to the Watford to Euston Overground line. Mike has promised to increase the size of our trains from 4 to 5 cars within a year to ease crowding.

Very interesting to see where messaging is heading and how in the space of searching and purchasing leveraging of your connected contacts could be the preferred and trusted route before any other methods... Checking out Telegram ... Thx +Howard Moorey :)

Story
Tagline
Responsible person at Link4Growth, 2020BC, SME7, chairman of Watford Table Tennis League, Author, Innovator, Entrepreneur, wine & beer lover and eternally positive!
Introduction

Welcome to my GoOgle bio Page !

I follow my passions, have given up working and spend my time having fun with great people... 

I love change... my big project that will take me through to 2020 is to help bring about a transformation in the way we live and work in the UK... that includes a whole host of things including, getting people to focus on taking responsibility, people and relationships rather than blame and money... also reversing the trend of obesity by surrounding people with others who are making better health choices, getting us to all think about buying locally and living in a more sustainable manner... and rebuilding our communities that we lost through with our endless chase for money and convenience and ... getting people to talk to each other, find out who is actually in our neighbourhood and towns and start connecting again... the "concept of enough"... there is enough for us all,  it just needs fairer distribution and a move to an abundance / collaboration mentality away from that of scarcity / competition and eventually... replacing the government with something more appropriate for the 21st century... then after that I would love to help out in Europe not with the debacle which is the EU of today, but something that celebrates member states uniqueness and culture rather than trying to control and manipulate.

There is much to do!! But with Vision, passion, enormous energy, belief and desire to be part of a team leading the way for a better future for us all and the next  generation I am sure this will be one heck of a rollercoaster....

My ambition? To have served my purpose for having been born to this planet... and to have not let down the people who know me by falling short of what I am able to do!

Bragging rights
We all have gifts, I believe I have discovered mine... now enjoying helping others find theirs!
