To be published very soon – Walking Home. In which we walk home, beneath the vapour trails to create communities in which both work and pleasure are walking distance from Everyone’s door. Transport is our most destructive activity. We cannot “green” it. Instead we can live lives, which have no need for it. Wonderfully, that is also the road to happiness – convivial town and village centres with orchards and market gardens reclaiming the current desolation of ring road and retail park. We’ve set the price at £10 plus postage and packaging, but please shop at a good bookshop and avoid Amazon. Avoiding Amazon is a small part of walking home.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream was published by Smokehouse Press in November 2014


“Could we dream of a better world? Do we have the imagination to link happiness to places, people closely to our planet? These are epic times, and Patrick Noble sets out how to explore the routes to conviviality we may have forgotten we desire. Creating greener economies will take remarkable effort. Here, then, are some brave solutions.” Professor Jules Pretty


“Patrick Noble’s writings preserve the organic movement’s authentic radical spirit” – Dr Philip Conford, author of The Development of the Organic Network.
