Hello Rowan - thanks for your message - we just had a two day intro-workshop in AoH, here at our farm, facilitated by Jennifer from Colombia; myself I couln¡t partipate really, since I was very sick, but Marina, Esther & Tamara, neighbours from Erongaricuaro, did, I¡m reading now the manual; 

I have been in touch with some of the AoH Tools through Transisison Movement, and the model of the Pro-Action Café you helped us facilitade during the PC Fundamentals Course in Aleafeliz in January 2012, has been reproduced quite a few times since then in different PC Courses; we´re definitely haby with these tools, bus have to learn how to manage them; 

right now I¡m investigating on were to learn more, if there are gropus in Mexico (seems not here at least) - planning to get back to Colombia in June/ July 2016, hopefully...

muchos saludos a ti y a Zulma, abrazo...

Great work with this site! I am wondering whether it was possible to syncronize this site with Linkedin? Y.c. Maria

Hi Rowan, hope you are your family are doing well.

I got the impression that you are in the group hosting this site right? I'm thinking to make an AoH page on facebook that is global where events, invitation etc can be posted. There are a lot of local groups, but no shared page for AoH in general. If you and others wants to be admins on the site, just get a hold of me :) I'm on facebook quite a lot because I am behind a couple of sites, so it would be easy for me to share relevant AoH news through FB too.

Hugs to you, Lama
