About Rona

I'm interested in orchards and in improving cycling facilities so that more people feel safe to cycle more of the time. I would also like to help exchange skills for green living. I helped start and continue to help run a community orchard on one of the allotments in south Ipswich. I also run a website on green living - www.greenfootsteps.com. This is a worldwide website and anyone with a skill to share or an insight into green living methods and ideas is welcome to submit articles.
