Hi Lane! Great to read your sharing on our Reskilling Group!
You might be interested in receiving our local Shannon's Garden E-News even though the main focus is our whatcom waters & lands, rather than the larger Cascadia.
Let her know I sent you and details can be found at:

Hi Lane, If you want to invite someone to the Transition USA & Transition Cascadia group, you would need to have their email address to send them an invite.
However, they can join on their own without an invite by just going to the group site and signing in. You could also consider leaving a web-link to the group so they can find it, or just tell them to google it.

Hi Lane
Sounds like some challenges over your way - I am sorry to hear that. good luck!
Hey - do you remember a discussion we had about creating a local currency? We talked about hooking you and Tom Wood up for printing and artwork - well, rather than re-inventing the wheell, and because 4th Corner Exchange (4CX) is really really good at what they do, and because we have found a way to do this compatibly/collaboratively with them...I would like to ask you this - what would be the next step to make this happen? We need a design. Right now the tentative name for this exchange modality will be 'Life Currency'. So.... what say you, Master Printer!?
