About the host

Randine (47)

Host since




Last seen online

I have a passion for the environment and sustainability: my background includes permaculture and farming as well as a very successful career as a Software Consultant. I have lived and worked in sustainable farming communities in the Caribbean, Central America, Wales and Cornwall. I am interested in sustainable food growing, energy reduction and using social networks as a tool for reducing the effects of climate change.

Modern technology can be an enabler in promoting sustainability: the power of social media can be transformative for people, enabling them to connect, share and work together to have a positive impact on their local community environment.

I would be interested in connecting with others who have a similar passion for sustainability, so we can share our vision and experiences.
