My response:
Hi Anne:
The contact person for Transition Foothills is actually Brita Adkinson. You can find her here. I'm currently more of a peripheral support person. Another core person is Adriane Bonaparte, in case you know her.
Talk to you soon,
~Alan

Hi Paul! I used to live upstream in the south fork valley! You may already know lots of folks from that community and there is a community center!
Maple Falls now has a community garden. It is right next to the bakery!
Also, be sure to connect with folks around Bodhi Creek, near Kendal Creek watershed!

Welcome to Transition Whatcom, Paul! I grew up in Maple Falls and lived in Glacier in my late teens early twenties (mid '70s) and am very happy to hear that you have a group of people that want to do this critical work. Did you know that there are folks in Kendall and Maple Falls that are working toward a similar vision? You might support and collaboration with them. I don't know if they have defined their catchment area - whether it is Transition Foothills or Maple Falls or Kendall or what - Alan Seid and Brita Atkinson are both a part of it. Look around the membership here and you should find their names. Another suggestion is for you to start a group - Perhaps Transition Glacier or Foothills - on the Group tab so that you all can find each other easily and communicate as a group here. It is easy to do.
