We recently moved to B'ham and are interested in a lifestyle change/makeover!
We are exhausted, as many folks are, with what I call, "Feeding the Machine," in that we want what resources and finances we have to be enough to not only survive, but to thrive.
I am interested in transitioning our current lifestyle to something more sustainable.
I have heard of many ways to do this, but at this point in our information world, there is almost too much information and I have no idea where to start.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I am interested in long-term, sustainability.
I am in my mid 40's and feel strongly that unless I make some lifestyle changes, it will be a grim future in my approaching elderly age.
I also want this knowledge to benefit my twin boys who are now 13.
I am deeply concerned with the kind of legacy I will leave to them, and knowing I have passed down some valuable information as to not only survive, but to thrive in a questionable future.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
How To...many different things.
Living off grid, alternative heating and electricity, living minimally, grow a well rounded garden in our climate, canning, caring for chickens, alternative house building, how to navigate land, and other subjects I do not know about.
Fairly basic skills in writing and speaking (announcements) fund raising, teaching arts/crafts, event planning, indoor gardening, sewing, crocheting, cleaning and organizing home while utilizing proper space usage/converting houses into homes, teaching, working with children, caring for elderly, including dimensia related illness, single-parent living strategies, other.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
Unsure if our neighborhood has a name, but we live on Toledo Street, off of Lakeway. We are new to the community.
Where did you hear about Transition Whatcom and how did you find our community network website?
It took a few phone calls:
Initially, The Co-op, then Resources For A Sustainable Comm., then Inspiration Farm, then Transition Whatcom!
