Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition?
I've taken the Transition Training workshop with Sophy and Naresh from the UK, and was a co-initiator of Transition Whatcom (TWIG), getting Transition Whatcom up and running.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I've been concerned about Peak Oil and climate change since seeing The End of Suburbia in 2004, and I have been following the Transition movement since it began in the UK in 2005. I initiated and on served on the local Energy Resource Scarcity/Peak Oil Task Force for the city of Bellingham and Whatcom County.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
I guess I'm a "community organizer." I have some skills in nonviolent communication, use the Acorn model for group organization, and modified dynamic facilitation. I can present on peak oil and Transition topics. I am a musician (trumpet). I have interest in Heart and Soul/Inner Transition issues and processes.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
The Birchwood Neighborhood
Your Personal Website (if you have one)

All the Peak Moment Videos Filmed at Inspiration Farm

Posted on July 6, 2014 at 4:34pm 0 Comments

I'm starting to lose track of the Peak Moment episodes filmed at Inspiration Farm, so I thought it would be nice to see them in one place.  Visit peakmoment.tv and subscribe to see these consistently good series of interviews (and see if you can find the one filmed in my front yard).

I'm also hoping you will be inspired to consider attending the Permaculture Design course at Inspiration Farm coming up August 17-29th.…

I joined in part to stay in touch with you, in part to stay in touch with the good work. My old e-mail died and I forgot to copy you over to the new one. Please send your snail mail address to theiman52 at yahoo dot com so I can send you Christmas/New Years propaganda. Life is good here, I hope it is for you as well.

Hi David, Would you be willing to send out an invitation to your TW friends list, for the Skillshare Event – When you think the event page is ready to go broader.   Its only 2 months before the faire date.

If I understood correctly, you will also post Larry Korns talk at Village Books.  That is so helpful and I know Larry would appreciate it.

 

Re the Skillshare event posting on our TW site.....There is a small volunteer team that has worked hard on the website....On my posting on TW, I've tried to keep it simple and to direct people to the main website- http://whatcomskillsharefaire.org/sponsors.html    I've now added a line on the TW event page that states its a TW sponsored event. 

I'm not sure who is taking the lead on seeking sponsors – check with Tom, my guess is we could really use your volunteer support with this, and with seeking skillshare presentors!

 

I'm waiting for an updated picture to add to the TW skillshare page ...I've requested  Brian K to look in his files, and am also waiting to hear back from webteam for a link.

I will be traveling for a week and return late July. ...It would be great to have your backup on this event page while I'm traveling (or offline)...please be sure any changes made are in near consensus with the planning team, as we're working hard to be a functioning collective.

Hi David, I need some help.  Would you request TW admin team to sponsor these two events?   Natural-farming http://transitionwhatcom.ning.com/events/natural-farming-observations-with-larry-korn-at-inspiration-farm  and

Whatcom Skillshare http://transitionwhatcom.ning.com/events/whatcom-skillshare-faire

I recall you sharing in the past that TW wants an online form filled out Before they will sponsor an event.

It would be so helpful if you or another computer person would fill out that TW form for these two events, all the info needed should be right on the event page or website.

Link  possibly here- https://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?formkey=dFNPT1JiTWNvdjhsOGhKWEcyU3V1eEE6MQ

 

I believe both events would welcome sponsorship by Transition Whatcom. 

If the TW team is interested in this, sponsorship could be as simple as providing a donation (USD) towards the event (whatever amount team decide would be appreciated), and to also help with promotion by placing the events as featured events. 

The Skillshare event is looking for more volunteers, if there is an aspect of being involved in event preparation or at the event that you are especially called to, we would so welcome you! 

At this point, phoning Tom may be the best way to plug in, and asking to be on the planning team email list.

Thanks David, glad to be here and can't wait to be more involved.  Currently I am overwhelmed yet extremely happy completing  my wilderness survival/ethnobotany/permaculture designs course, been helping create a small handful of gardens and soon off to AK until august.  Then you all should see a bit more of me as I hope to help be a vehicle of change.  Thanks for all your hard work

Hi David, I just posted my response to Juliet's Twog Blog.  I did not see your response as I was writing it...I'll read over what you've written later.

Thanks for all you do!

Hi David
Yes the Boulevard park event is a TW OA event, so if you could "feature" it that would be great- thanks!
