Welcome Chris!  Great to see you on the local network!

A couple network groups that might interest you would be:

GMO: Awareness & Actions - http://transitionwhatcom.ning.com/group/gmoaction

 

Earth Gardens network- http://transitionwhatcom.ning.com/group/organic

and for the geeks saving their own seeds- Seed-Savers- http://transitionwhatcom.ning.com/group/seedsavers

To connect with these groups, you'll need to sign on to the TW site, and then click "Join" on group site.  None of these groups are chatty, as most of us working under the sky fingers in soil! 

 Thanks for the work you do!  I hope you'll take time to read the Democracy School article in the Whatcom Watch, and consider attending this June 24 & 25 class coming up! 

Come visit our garden sanctuary with the other Chris...she knows how to find us!
