I write about peak oil impacts at Whatcom Watch.
I give community presentations about peak oil/climate change.
I'm learning about small-scale veggie production and permaculture.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I'm retired and attempting to produce more and more food as sustainably as possible. Study of peak oil and impacts convinced me that we need to do this asap.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
My main contribution to TW will likely be making presentations to interested participants about peak oil, climate change, and the necessity for learning sustainable living skills.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
Fazon Lake area on Hemmi, between EversonGoshen and Mission roads.

Hi John, I am interested in connecting with our watershed "Harmony" neighbors. That would be those of us in the shared rural watersheds
of NE Squalicum Mt & NW Stewart Mt.
whick drains into Anderson Creek (streaming into Nooksack), and drains into Agate Bay-Carpenter-Olsen-Smith Creeks.
There are a few of us upstream from you and closest grange would be Rome. (ie. rural communities of Goshen - Rome - Agate Bay - Sunnyside - Harmony). I'm great with reading topo maps & understanding watersheds. Let me know if you are interested in connecting with a few other folks upstream & up-mountain from you.
Hi John - Welcome to Transition Whatcom - I understand there are several of you out there in Goshen that are taking the initiative to start transitioning together. I am very excited to know this! I would love to see a Transition Goshen show up on under the Group tab. We now have initiatives starting in Blaine, Laurel, Goshen, Maple Falls, Glacier and the York neighborhood of Bellingham. I think it would help people that are new to Transition Whatcom find others in their area if each area had a Group going on. Care to create one? It is easy. Also, TW is setting up a meeting for TW to meet all the TIs just starting up in Whatcom County. I mentioned it to Virginia and she expressed interest in attending. We are also setting up a meeting with the new TIs for learning how to use a ning site. We will be contacting you all for both of those meetings. I hope you are well and enjoying this rather odd weather pattern we are having - seems like we are about 1 month off of our normal pattern. We may have just gotten into typical September weather.
