Christmas is coming,
The geese are getting fat,
Please put a penny in the old man’s hat.
Forget the ugliness of Black Friday for a moment, for the month of December all proceeds from the online sale of Unlikely Heroes will be donated to Crisis at Christmas. So, think about someone whom you think might like the book – might even be yourself – and buy a copy knowing your money will also help someone on the streets.
There but for fortune go you or I. £25, plus postage and packaging

The book of my travels documents over 70 of my visits with a double page spread for each visit and in so doing traces the calendar year across the small-scale, sustainable farming scene in England and Wales.
The book has over 150 pages of full colour images, plus there is a Foreword from Colin Tudge, probably best known as founder of the Oxford Real Farming Conference but is also a well-read author on environmental and food issues (His most recent book Six Steps Back to the Land is very much a call to arms for small-scale farming) and Stephen Devlin from the New Economics Forum has provided a very insightful essay specifically for the book on the wider economic issues around food. In total, there are 160, A4 landscape pages, all carefully printed by the Dorset Press of Henry Ling Ltd. in Dorchester.
Note: By ‘proceeds’ I mean the £25 you will pay for the book. Whilst I would love to also contribute the contribution to post and packaging, I am afraid I do need to recover some of the costs of selling the book.
