Lifestyle frugal, nature based location away from high populations. Orgnanic gardener, maple sugering, and run a nature based business on an 8800 acre preserve that I helped to permanently be excluded from commercial development or subdivision. Interesting story there

I'm guessing you read The One Straw Revolution many years ago like me!
I met editor Larry Korn at one of our regional permi convergences and I'll be hosting him when he comes up...His website shows other parts of the country he'll be visiting to promote the reprint of the book, plus he will be lead instructor at a June permaculture design course in Oregon.
Let me know who you're friend is who moved to B'ham...I hope their interested in helping us strengthen our local resilency on this end of the continental latitude!
Good to hear that you have a few Yankee roots. A good friend of mine spent some time with Helen
Nearing, years back didn't get a chance too. My son lives in Philadelphia, I usually get at least one visit in to Philly each year. How do you find life out there compared to the East?
A good friend recently moved to Bellingham, Wa
Hey Cliff, did you ever have the chance to meet my heroes Helen & Scott Nearing?
I have yankee roots myself with connections from Mt. Katahdin to Cape Cod, Mass. & Conn & down to the state that is not quite yankee nor southern, but the best blend of both - Pennsylvania!
Hi Cliff! There is also a US Transition ning site that also might be helpful in getting your local Maine Transition Initiative started. Also there are various trainings happening around the country to help train facilatators.
