Yes, I think this poster is probably better than the Burroughs one because it is simple and gets to the point. The Forest reserves the right to barr anyone for any reason without need for explanation or discussion. I also thought this a bit questionable, but it is standard at many places like pubs a...

I had a plan for the laundry. It involved a couple of these:

Maybe £20 is a lot to spend, but a simple solution to an ancient problem.

Let me know if I should pick a couple up.

I think whatever we put out, it should all get rolled into one. Events, wg meetings, major shifts that need filling, buildings days etc - it could all be in one message sent out no more than once a week.

I dig what James is saying about the forest speaks. And yes, facebook's main redeeming factor is that you can play scrabble with people.

Compostible waste going to landfill is a problem. It does not biodegrade in the desired way, but instead reacts with the other landfill stuff and ends up producing shitloads of methane. It also leads to the production of a liquid called leachate, which can contaminate water supplies. So landfill is ...
