"Just curious if there is anyone else that works with ducks at all? We just started our flock this fall and have a handful of Welsh Harlequins that we're hoping to breed."

Literature Live at Village BooksWhat if the best responses to peak oil and climate change don't come from government, but from you and me and the people around us?In 2008, the best-selling The Transition Handbook suggested a model for community-led response to peak oil and climate change. Since then, Transition communities have sprung up globally- Transition Whatcom in 2009 became the 17th official Transition Initiative (of over 100) in the US.

The Chicken Club (The Flock)

A group for people who want to raise a few chickens, who have chickens or other poultry, are thinking about getting some poultry, or who just plain love chickens and ducks and geese!

Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition?
Trying to grow more of our own food in our current home. Planning a garden for the spring and have invested in a few chickens and ducks.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
Sustainability is one of the most important issues facing our culture today, and one that far too many people are blind about. We need to be prepared for the changes that past decisions will bring. Not only is a simpler life (in terms of energy use) one of the few ways to move forward, but I believe that it will lead to greater satisfaction in life as well.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
I don't have a lot of skills yet, most of my knowledge is theoretical rather than practical at this point. Mostly enthusiasm and a great love of learning. I do have some experience with public speaking.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
Yew St Hill
Your Personal Website (if you have one)
http://fernleaf67.blogspot.com
Where did you hear about Transition Whatcom and how did you find our community network website?
Came across the website one day trolling through links (not sure exactly how I ended up here, may have been through permies.com.) I was recently reminded about the site during the October meeting of the Environmental Conservation Book Club at Village Books.
Please note that you do not have to answer all of the above questions in order to join, and you can always come back later to edit your profile. If it's all too many questions for now, please provide a short answer below on why you'd like to join this site (or a summary of the above, if answered).
I am very interested in sustainability and a conscious, purposeful transition to a different way of life.
