cultivating resilient system design skills, transforming resource intensive lawns into resource producing edible landscapes, advocating for a pedal powered Bellingham
I'm focusing on transforming my pessimistic perspective and my fatalistic tendencies into positive action. I believe this a very crucial task in the Transition and one I could use support in. If you catch me displaying my old ways please fell free to give me a nudge and ask "How can you/we transform (fill in the blank) into positive action?" Thanks for your help.

Do you have any info on ecological fluidized beds ?? Big words for residential black water system like Jack Todd has in his Maine house with (3) 50 gal. drums in his daylight basement and a septic tank outside.
I had a video link in one of the Garden e-news..... I'd love to see someone do a prototype of this system locally.
Thanks for getting in touch, Joseph. I hope my husband and I can meet your family some time soon. In the long term--after the holidays? next spring?--I'm interested in a Broadway Park group, too, and can contribute some time.
Hi Joseph! Thanks for the link for another bicycle-powered tool website: http://rockthebike.com/power/bikerbar
I'm thinking I may get a discussion going about 'Sustainable Energy using Renewable Resources for heating, transportation, & powering tools'....do you want to join in if I or another posts a forum?
HI Joseph, Welcome to the Organic Gardeners & Edible Forest Gardeners group! I'm also interested in low-tech human powered machines, ie bicycle powered and so are WT members Travis & Brian....I'll look forward to seeing you at seed-swap...If you can help out with take down or set up we could use the extra help...Contact Bruce (or me & I'll pass the word!)
