I am a core member of Transition Chuckanut and one of the facilitators of the Bow Little Market on Old 99 just south of the east end of Bow Hill Rd.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
As a mother I am helping to create a bubble of resiliency that goes beyond my property. Transition is a greate way of giving energy to those who are already working towards a new paradigm, while activating, networking neighbors so they may reorganize quickly once economic and environmental hardship rock people off the narrow ledge they cling to.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
The Bow Little Market has been an excellent way to engage a rural area and begin to recreate village life, community identity, and positive, practical relationships. I would be happy to share my experience. I have a beautiful, five year old terraced forest garden and a lot of experience in water catchment.
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?
I took the Transition Training in Bellingham.

Hi Sarai! I look forward to walking the land of your edible forest garden someday! Water catchment is a great skill to demonstrate on the landscape!
Here is link to two of the networks on our Whatcom Transition network that you may want to join, and share info with. Both groups are Not chatting, and low traffic, but contain many busy & knowledgeable garden-farmers & permaculturist.
