26-07-2009 17:07After news yesterday that the Big Green Gathering was facing a Hight Court hearing on Monday morning for an injunction against the festival applied for by Mendip District Council and the police, today the directors of the Big Green Gathering seem to have voluntarily surrendered the license for the BGG 2009, and thus cancelling the event just 48 hours before it was due to start.

14-07-2009 20:29England is hit by a heat wave and we are all out enjoying the sun. What a great time to arrange a trip to visit the Kew Ecovillage in west London. I make the journey to London and stay with friends. The morning after, I wake to find that the heat wave has officially ended and London has once again returned to a palette containing many shades of grey. Drizzle trickles down the train window as I make my way to Kew Bridge Station where I am intending to explore. I’m here to discover more about what a group of individuals have been doing since they reclaimed some disused land a month earlier. Land now being used in an attempt to exhibit a more sustainable form of living.
