Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition?
Just introduced, a new comer and learning.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I identify most with the idea of community, of developing a community with a sense of place, taking responsibility for stewardship of the place with a concern for the people who live there. I live in Bellingham occasionally. When I am away, I visit a lot.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
I am not sure what I can offer, but I am sure that as I learn and become more involved, I will find plenty to offer.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
I travel several months of the year. When home I split my time between Bellingham and BC
Please note that you do not have to answer all of the above questions in order to join, and you can always come back later to edit your profile. If it's all too many questions for now, please provide a short answer below on why you'd like to join this site (or a summary of the above, if answered).
I would like to learn more about the transition idea
