About Chris Southall

Here is Chris's potted history his life:
After a 5 year engineering apprenticeship at the Royal Aircraft Establishment in Farnborough I spent 9 years trying to live self-sufficiently in the Isle of Man with poultry, cows, pigs etc. I made a mean cheese as well as some totally awful ones!
I lived In intentional communities for about 22 years including 18 months in a self sufficient community in the Isle of Man and have been a committed 'Green' all my adult life, standing for the Green party a number of times and campaigning in the renewable energy field over the years.
As well as a wide experience of community living I have accumulated a lot of different useful skills in my life. I was trained as a engineer in but have also managed to fit in working as a potter, a drummer, a beekeeper, a Mr fixit (small scale builder) a computer engineer (I ran an industrial unit for re-cycling IT equipment ), a self development workshop leader (working with drumming, movement, sweat lodge etc - I completed Gabriel Roth's 5 Rhythms movement training). I am a very experienced gardener and smallholder. I have done a lot of house building and maintenance over the years and am very excited about the process of converting our house in Burrs road into an eco dwelling.
