On Saturday 11 May at 5.00 in the morning, thousands of people around the world will walk through the darkness of night towards the dawning light of day.

And the aim of Darkness into Light is to allow everyone to play a part in removing the stigma around suicide and self-harm.

If you would like to get your weekly food supply from small organic businesses: farmers, bakers, sweet-makers, mustard and vinegar-makers, fishermen and butchers, eFarmz can be your fresh connection. You order online and they deliver to your door. Muriel Bernard, founder, explains how it works.

He explains a bit more.
