In the process of creating a food forest on our little lot north of Bellingham. Gearing up to convert my diesel truck to run on waste vegetable oil. Buying local. Researching ways to get our property off the electrical grid, etc.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
Transitioning off of petroleum is smart no matter where you lie on the political spectrum. Why would anyone think it is a good idea to continue to rely on something which is in finite supply?
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
I am am student of permaculture design and implementation. It is my passion and what takes up most of my focus.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
Blaine / Custer / Ferndale border.
Where did you hear about Transition Whatcom and how did you find our community network website?
On website GreenConversion.net. I heard of it by Googling their information I read on a sign placed near some blueberry bushes they were selling at Thee Market in Birch Bay.

I think I sent you a message with the price and tariff information for the oil press but now I can't find it so apologies if this is the first you're seeing of this. This is a friendly harassment to please confirm a final yes or no regarding the oil press group order to my email address firstname.lastname@example.org. We have more than 8 confirmed which means your grand total will be $91.89 USD or real close to that depending on the exchange rate on the day I place the order. If you say yes, I’ll send you my address so you can send me a check.
Hi! Welcome to TW and the Earth Gardens group!
Glad you've gotton some fava beans, you'll find they are soo delicious steamed when fresh! You may be about to become a seed geek, so I'll send you another invite to our seed group. Remember sometime in Jan or Feb we will host another local seed exchange, and last year we even did one in the fall for those of us who had just harvested our summer seeds.
