"Hi Lady Hamster,
I'm kind of new to these "ning" sites. I was getting back to you about the wayward ladies (lost hens!) and I had been sending you messages instead of leaving a comment. Okay! Anyway, give me a call…"
"Gosh John, I am really sorry about your birds. I had pulled my extra fencer and temp wire out for you or your friend to pick up but never got a call. I called the numbers you posted but neither were able to reach you personally. I…"

In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I believe in growing food for self sufficency, and giving others the ability to grow their own on my land if they have no place to grow their own where they live, in a cooperative effort.
I believe that to move forward we need a firm grasp on our past to know how to not repeat the mistakes.
I prefer barter to cash as a $1 and a $50 take the same amout of time to burn with flame and both produce the same amount of heat, yet the time and energy to do a task can be measured in a more balanced manner.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
Land, fruit trees, knowelege, tools to share with people who want to barter.
I have the privilage of haveing the space available for children who want to grow an animal (Pig, Goat, Sheep, Or Cow/Steer) do so at my farm for FFA or 4H. I have angora goats and will let a child care for the animal for a season to have the wool for the production of a garment, yarn etc as a school club or senior project.
I will discuss doing the same for a dedicated family as well.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
Northwest and Axton Drive (North Bellingham)
