Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition?
By increasing the amount of food I grow and preserve every year, riding my bike for a majority of my transportation, turning off lights in rooms I am not in, and spreading the knowledge of Ecology Action's Grow Bio-intensive.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I am interested in voluntary simplicity. Technology and convenience only create more problems than we can see clearly. My interests are to inspire regenerative mini farms, artisans, local currencies, basically to become community-sufficient for our needs while exercising our talents, gifts and interests.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
I am going through the prerequisites for becoming a teacher of Ecology Action's Grow Bio-Intensive. If you are not aware of this gardening methodology then you must check it out! I also like to work on commuter bicycles so people can keep peddling. I also went to Alderleaf Wilderness College for a nine month wilderness survival, ethnobotony, naturalism,and permiculture design course.
I am currently in the midst of creating a sliding scale/donation based business to help people pursue biointensive gardens, anti-car bike maintenance, food forests, or any other odd jobs. I do not want the lack of money to keep people from having gardens or safely functioning bikes. Unfortunately i have to pay rent too.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
Where did you hear about Transition Whatcom and how did you find our community network website?
Through a weekend permaculture design workshop.
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).
this seems more productive for networking than facebook
