Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition?
Most of my involvment has been through the Community Living Group. As time and my health permits, my hope is to move towards living within a community (eco-village?) dedicated to each other, the earth and sustainable living.
So very happy to be a part of this movement.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I want to network, be a part of the community and explore with others a more collective, sustainable, balanced, and compassionate way of life. I'm fairly new on this path, know very few who share these value and so know there is much I can learn here.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
I have some experiance in organic indoor gardening using soil, but also organic aero/hydroponic systems.
Grew and gave away a ton of garden starts last Spring. Helped start up GARDENS FOR 11+ FAMILIES/ HOMES :) in Bellingham).
Hoping to learn more about permiculture, organic aquaponics (symbiotic cultivation of plants and aquatic animals in a recirculating environment), and community off-grid style living/design.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
Silver Beach / Alabama Hill area
Where did you hear about Transition Whatcom and how did you find our community network website?
A freind, whom I gave some veggy starts and garden tips to mentioned it and directed me to a flier/ poster with web info. for The Unleashing event.

Hi Sara! Good to be together with you in our Community Living circle this week!
Let me know if you ever want to get together in one of the gardens I care for to visit or work with plants & soil! I have space also at the north Cordata Community Garden and care for acre sanctuary homestead land in rural area. So glad to hear you grew edible plant starts for your friends. Imagine there being a community greenhouse in urban zone in the future!
