"Fence for deer and dogs. Row covers for rabbits and birds. Sluggo for slugs (though new evidence indicates it's hard on worms). Little paper or plastic collars if you have cutworms. Netting to protect berries and grapes. Radionics if you are…"
"What do we need to be doing to work toward making Lummi Island a sustainable community? I'd like to hear from the members of this group with any ideas you have had and what you know is happening now. I know Paul Washington an Colleen McRory and…"
Excellent blog! I hope lots of people check it out.
When Cindi suggested starting a group, she meant starting a "Group" here on the Transition Whatcom site. Then you can search for members here who might be on or have a…"
"Hi again. I just noted an error in my comment below. I am texting on a tiny keyboard and hope you understand :-)

"Hi Randy - Thank you for taking the initiative! Could I also suggest creating a group called Transition Lummi Island? Maybe you have already done this and it is waiting approval from an admin person. I also suggest, if you are interested, to host an…"

Hi Randy! I've just gotten caught up on reading your transitionlummi blog and really enjoy what you are sharing! If you ever want to take the time to add your entrys to your personal blog space here on TW, it would reach a broad local audience and I could click the button that would notify me each time you post a new one, and I could then easily comment.
If you want any coaching on how to navigage this TW-ning site, just let me know and we can connect on phone when we are both online.
Also, I noticed there are about 4 other members on our TW site that list Lummi Island under their location. I found them by going to the 'Members' tab, then I typed in Lummi Island in the search bar, then hit return (don't do the advanced search). You could then leave a comment on each of their pages with an invite & link to the Transition Whatcom Lumni Island group you created here.
(Or if you want me to give it a try doing the invites, just let me know....I tend to be an island fan and Lummi is high on my list).
Hi Randy! It is great to find a Lummi Island person on our regional transition site.
I don't know yet if their are any other Lummi islanders on this site - Yet!
There is also a Transition Cascadia group on the US Transition ning site, at http://transitionus.ning.com/group/transitioncascadia
There is a group of us online there supporing each others efforts from across the region.
We are having our 2nd Annual 2010 Seed-Swap this Jan 31st and will gather in downtown B'ham!
It would be wonderful to have some islanders come over and either share their seeds or receive the abundance we have to share!
There is also a Gardeners-Permaculturist network group on this TW site along with many other networking groups under the 'Group' tab...and lots of discusssion to join in!
Welcome & I'll look working together under the sky dome with souls on the ground!
