Place Making Workshop with Michael Cook of Portland's City Repair at WWU Viking Union 462

May 13, 2011 from 6pm to 9pm
Michael Cook of Portland's City Repair and Transition Whatcom are hosting this workshop on Placemaking. What is Placemaking, you say?From City Repair's website (cityrepair.org) placemaking is a process within which citizens foster active, engaged relationships to the spaces which they inhabit, and shape those spaces in a way which creates a sense of communal stewardship and lived connection.  This is most often accomplished through a creative reclamation of public space: projects which take the…See More

Riot 4 Austerity

Hey there fellow energy-saving enthusiasts! There is a great website out there that challenges households to reduce their energy use by 90%. They track several categories of energy: transportation (gasoline), electricity, natural gas, consumer goods, water, etc. I've been trying to keep track of my energy use, and want to encourage others to do so too! Maybe we can share our struggles and triumphs?The usual website is: www.riot4austerity.org (but it…See More

October 22, 2010 from 6pm to 7pm
A Transition Whatcom Heart & Soul Event!Kathy McMahon, aka 'The Peak Shrink' is coming to Bellingham! In her words:As we’re bombarded with alarming headlines on a daily basis, how do we find the sane space between Doom and Denial? Is there a place for wit when we examine the major challenges of our lifetime: economic depression, environmental degradation, and energy depletion? Is blind optimism itself, a diagnosable mental disorder?With humor and insight clinical psychologist Kathy McMahon…See More

Hanna Winter replied to Hanna Winter's discussion Research project help needed - rain barrels wanted! in the group Organic Gardeners/Growers & Edible-Forest-Gardens & Permaculture
"Hi Steve, Yes, I understand rainwater is a fine nonpotable water source as well. I have heard of some concerns about using it depending on what kind of roof the building has, since organics and metals can leach off the roof into the rain barrel.…"

Hanna Winter commented on Christie Cassel's group Urban Gleaning Project
"Awesome idea Christie! I was involved with the Community Fruit Tree Harvest when I was living in Seattle, and it was a blast! We donated most of the harvest to local food banks, which often don't have a lot of fresh fruit. But it would be great…"

Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition?
I'm not sure yet how involved with the Transition I will be... but I would like to be involved in any way that I am needed! I have plenty of free time and am itching to get moving on the many problems we have to work on.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I see the Transition movement as a structured yet flexible framework that can be used to make the community more resilient and ready to make the transition to a lower-energy form. I'm not sure what it will look like, but I am very excited that there are people who are committed enough to start working on it now - instead of just waiting for later when we will be forced to change. My personal interest is in food - food security, resiliency, local food, organic, preservation/stores, and all that! I really just stumbled upon the movement while searching for groups working on sustainability issues in Bellingham, and I am glad I did!
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
I'm very interested in working on local food systems and low-energy household management.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
Lettered Streets Neighborhood
Where did you hear about Transition Whatcom and how did you find our community network website?
I found out about TW when I moved to Bellingham a few years ago, and was looking for a neighborhood or city-wide group working on peak oil issues.

Hi Hanna! I saw your posting for researching water from rainwater barrels on the group Community Asks & Offers. Lots of folks have responded, including us.
If you still need folks for the study, you could post your email & phone number either on our comment page, or back on the discussion itself. When you have enough folks, would you X out your Request to help us keep the postings current? Thanks!

Hanna,
Do you still need houses for your rainbarrel study? We have a big water collection tub that we use to water gardens, and we'd be happy to participate. We live in the York neighborhood south of Lakeway. Message me if you're interested! --Chris Wolf

Hi Hanna
You mentioned you might want to volunteer for the next event -which is tomorrow! If you are planning on coming and can be there a little early (noon) or stay a little late (4:30) to help out, that would be awesome.

Thanks, hope to see you there.
Kate
