Lots of energy, enthusiasm and diverse skills are our main resources. On the latter, we have individuals who are experienced in weaving/felt-making, permaculture, mud daubing, horticulture and a range of other areas. It is expected that we will arrange some courses to spread such skills around the group; watch this space for details. Re-skilling and reviving forgotten skills is a major theme of the transition scheme.

We will need funding as we move forward and intend to achieve this through our own fund-raising efforts (a ‘green’ social gathering on Shrove Tuesday was the first of these) and to seek third-party funding where appropriate.
