James Woodford’s grid-life crisis: one man’s journey to leave the city and live sustainably

James Woodford

Lots of people dream of making a ‘sea change’ to escape the rat race of the city. Some people even do it.

But how many leave with the intention of living sustainably? To live on the land, grow their own food, generate their own power and water, and even restore their new patch closer to its original, natural state. James Woodford and his family are working on just that.

The Environment Show Blogs On

Welcome to The Environment Show, my New Year’s resolution for 2008.

TES is a weekly program for radio, the web and podcast.

We’ll do our best to avoid preaching to you about the environment and getting bogged down in the minutae (as the media can often do.) Our aim is to make the environment interesting and accessible, as it should be.

The Show features important current environment issues, interviews with leading campaigners and experts, best practice and solutions to our big environmental challenges, how you can find work in the environment, the best of what the environment can offer in terms of pristine places, reviews of environment films and books, ‘gentle music for gentle people’ and a what’s-on guide to events.

And we’re going to make it interesting by using multi-media: video, audio, photos, weblinks and no-nonsense text from our writers.

Please let us know of any other good material on the blog topics or other environmental issues – especially in these different media formats. We also plan to take video, audio, photo and text submissions from our audience in the future. (Just needs to fit the TES mantra.)

In the meantime, we welcome your feedback and ideas via our blog.

Stay tuned. There’s loads more to come. Cheers,
Phil.
