I have a large garden and grow as many things as I can! I absolutely love and embrace what I see with Transition Whatcom.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I currently reside in an urban like/in city area, known as Birchwood. I am growing as many edible(and non) beautiful things as I can. I want to promote a more sustainable lifestyle among friends and neighbors, even within the City limits.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
I really want to learn more, and help promote gardening/growing within the City limits. I also have an extensive backround in Real Estate. I am a Realtor...I have worked in Seattle and also rural areas. This is not a sales pitch...just want to help if needed.
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?

Hi Megan, I need to go to the Birchwood n'hood anyway to pick some apples, so I am happy to pick up those plum this afternoon. I'll be by after 2:30ish. Thanks so much! I just LOVE dried plums! (So far, my aresenal of vitamins and supplements seem to be helping me win the fight with the virus - knock on wood!) Thanks, too, for offering to drop them off but I'm happy to come get them. I'll be at the CLSR party for sure! Jean
Hi Megan, thanks for the info about the plums! I'll try and stop by today.
I re-read your earlier message and realized that my comment didn't make much sense. Sorry 'bout that! My head is way foggy from fighting some cold or flu that has been going around the classrooms I've been working in! Have a fun bike ride! Jean
I believe I did meet you at the Skillshare! I probably didn't introduce myself as the volunteer coord. By the afternoon, it seemed that my coordinator efforts weren't really needed anymore, as the other team members were able to determine where the volunteer needs were.
Say, I see that you posted that you had plums a few weeks ago. Do you still have some? I know it is getting way late in the year now, but I sure do love dried plums! Let me know if there are any ripe for the pickin'!
