Research Reports:


I've worked primarily with community groups for many years – mostly in the UK, but also in Eastern Europe, Africa and the Caribbean.

inc image The Free Range Do-It-Yourself 'Feral' Stick-Fire Cooking Grate


Cooking outdoors is a fun skill to learn to expand your ecological awareness and personal resilience. Cook well outdoors from fresh or foraged food, and you can cook well anywhere. Problem is, where do you find the 'ecologically sound'/fossil-fuel free kit? The Free Range Stick-Fire Cooking Grate is a small, light-weight, trestle-style cooking grate designed to burn small sticks which, with a few tools and components, you can easily build yourself.

Recently there has been a large growth in the number of interactive public computer systems, ranging from those in libraries run by local councils, to an expanding number in shop windows run by the English Tourist Board or the AA. These systems show the potential of how computer based systems can help in communicating to the public. It would be great if the environment movement could take hold of information technology and use it to promote 'green' ideas, but such systems are very expensive – but there are alternatives!
