New book coming soon

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve blogged but I’m happy to say that I’m kickstarting the blog again. My life has changed quite a bit in the last two years. I’ve moved house so there won’t be any more posts about my steep shady garden looking over the flood plain of the Dyfi valley. I’m now living with four friends in a housing co-op in Machynlleth with a big garden and lots of life, both human, animal and plant. Incredibly its south facing with a big open aspect, and we’ve got raised beds and a polytunnel to grow in. But a lot of other things have changed in my life too and I want to reflect this in the blog.

During the last three years I have been working on an oral history project about the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT). You can find out more about this at For the last few months I have been writing a book about the project Voices from a disused quarry – an oral history of the Centre for Alternative Technology. This will be published and launched towards the end of May.

So although there may well be blogs about gardening in the future it’s also likely that I’ll be posting about oral history, politics, arts, theatre, environmental change, environmental history, swing dancing (a significant passion!), co-op living and any other subject I think people might be interested in knowing about. So come back and join me soon. All the best, Allan
