Welcome to Hampshire’s Green Book Blog.

This blog aims to promote all things green ie natural, organic and environmentally friendly in the Southampton area and to introduce people to a new book – ‘Southampton’s Green Book and Directory’, which will be published in December 2009.

See separate entry, Hampshire’s Green Book and Directory,  for ‘What is Southampton’s Green Book and Directory’?

This blog is quite  new and I will be adding details of ‘green’ events in the Southampton area. Please let me know if you are organising a green event so that it can be included here.

I will also be including posts about my attempts and those of my friends to lead a green or greener life!

Please also let me know about your attempts to lead a greener life.

Many thanks
