Last weekend saw the first Somerset Convergence day hosted by Sustainable Wells, bringing in people from many change-maker groups from all over Somerset, to meet together, network and 'converge'!
Bruce Garrard is an activist, the writer of five books, and the creator of Unique Publications. His book The River, about the River Brue in Somerset, inspired me when I was recently doing research on the Somerset Levels. His inspiration comes from the movie Aluna, about the Kogi people of Columbia, who say, ‘whatever you do, look after your rivers!’ They would take objects from one place, to another place, to connect land and waters. So Bruce realised that what he needed to do was to take shells from the mouth of the river Brue, which he calls ‘the disconnected river’, to the source.
