Transition Whatcom's Great Unleashing at Bellingham High School

April 10, 2010 at 9am to April 11, 2010 at 5pm
Because of the inevitable problems we’ll experience as a result of energy issues, we’re going to be challenged profoundly in the ways we live. As a community, we have two choices: we can sit back and wait, or we can respond proactively and begin making real changes that will lead to a more resilient community. The GREAT UNLEASHING is an event that will engage Whatcom County in a collective and committed response, and will kick-off the process of creating a 10-20 year energy descent action…See More

Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition?
I grow some of my own food, preserve the harvest, save some seeds, have chickens, try to bike or walk, and actively learn and teach about reducing waste streams, composting, and permaculture... and more.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I know that we live far beyond our means in this county, region, country and world. I am not comfortable running full tilt off the peak oil cliff without attempting or getting started on transition.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
I am a plumber in training and am really interested in alternative waste water treatment, water collection, and natural water quality. I also know a little bit about solar water heating. I garden and love plants, and want to learn more about herbal medicines.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
I live in Sunnyland

Hey Brooke
I just sent a "friend' request to you.
I'd like to be in contact with you for rainwater collections systems.
A fellow in the County just got two large tanks for rainwater collection and it might be an opportunity to assist/learn/help plumb them via our great manual from ARCSA class.

Hi Brooke! Welcome to our local TW ning site!
We share very similiar interests!
We may have even gardened together sometime if you have been part of any of the Tuesday garden-work-trade events!
We need plumbers who can help us transition to sustainable systems of graywater/black-water bio-processing, and also capturing rainwater for drinking sky-juice and our ecosystems plant-necture!
I'm glad you're here....And looking forward to working in the garden together!
