We have been involved in Transition since the beginning. From 2006 to 2010 we lived on our property west of Ferndale and built an all-electric, passive solar home. We have a ground source heat pump and PV panels. We have been preparing for a situation where we do not have a reliable electric grid. We garden and have food storage.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I think energy descent, climate change, self-reliance, and community are the most important issues of our time.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
We are tied up selling our house and downsizing. We have experience designing and building a home using alternative energy.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
Ferndale, Lake Terrell

Thank you for the warm welcome to Transition Ferndale. I look forward to meeting and working with as many members as possible, to learn from and create the connections necessary to become part of community in this area. I am making the transition back to the farm after 30 years away, and have lots to (re)learn.
Hi and thanks for the invite to Blue gold, I've been sharing thoughts and findings on Water issues for many years, and actually casually knew Jim Olsen from the Film FLOW. from when I worked on the GT Coomons conservancy project in T.C. Mich.
I have learned a great deal from kind friendly people like yourself, I will try to attend the showing and hopefully get a chance to talk with you next week.
Thanks for your welcome!
I would be interested in talking with other economists, and learners about the growing probability of a currency collapse in the future. This is a topic which would be of little interest to retirees, as it will primarily affect the young. Please feel free to contact me anytime. Thanks!
Judith, I have never met your husband or you to my knowledge but I was reffered his name because I was researching radiant floor heating and geothermal. I also am friends with your log cabin neighbors Dave and Jennifer Branch. I am consulting with Dave's distillery project.
Thank you for your welcome. I look forward to learning more about and participating with Transition Ferndale. I won't be able to make the meeting this Tuesday, but I look forward to meeting the group in the near future.
My wife and I recently purchased 5 acres off of Enterprise road. Our intent is to eventually build a little mini farm.
