Hi David! Fine to return the borrowed books to me when you get back in town!

Would you send your dad, Chuck Waugh an email invite to our Transition Transportation group? I read in email from Rick D that he was willing to lead the group, but I don't see him on our TW site yet.

I've just returned from a nature conference outside of Twisp WA. After being on the dry side its so very lush coming back home!

Hi David,
I thought you might be interested in attending the workshop at Inspiration Farm on Saturday on using scythes. It's a good deal for a workshop, and you get to go hands-on with the scythes with Brian's support.

Hope you can go, Juliet

Hi David,
What a lot to explore!
The Northwest Cooperative Development Center is asking for grant proposals by March 31st...here's their latest newsletter with the request, plus information about other coops including some forest-based coops. Feel like doing some MORE writing? NWCDC Winter Connections.pdf

David-
ON the What is TW page, could you add this under that blurb I already sent you?

The MISSION of Transition Whatcom is to:

1) Explore and then follow pathways of practical actions that will reduce our carbon emissions and dependence on fossil fuels;
2) Rebuild our community's resilience, that is, its ability to withstand shocks from the outside, through being more self-reliant in areas such as food, energy, health care, jobs and economics;
3) Inspire and support the communities and neighborhoods of Whatcom County as they establish Transition Initiatives at these local levels; and
4) Coordinate a county-wide, citizen led Energy Descent Action Pathway by creating a collective 20 year vision of Whatcom County.

THANKS!

Hey David! I was remembering how you & I both attended the city's computer mapping day. I think it would be great if we could have somebody from the city mapping department be present with their computer at the Great Unleashing Event.
I was visioning that we could also have a few tables at the event to share among all the grassroot garden-farm-food grassroot volunteers & groups that are local.
I'm working with Amy from Seattles www.urbangardenshare.org to add whatcom onto their online gardeners-gardenspace share program. Would you be willing to track our process and help out as needed in just a small way?

I also wanted to ask if you would be interested in pursueing have the city mapping folks & computer be present at the Great Unleashing...it would be great to have their table next to some of the garden& food tables...

I hope all is well. If you are looking for more garden space...please post a note on the new discussion GardenShare discussion so Amy will have more proof as she requested of the demand in our region.
Thanks for all that you do... I hope some of these ideas I"ve shared will resinate with you too.

Hello David,
It has taken me a while to get back to you. I am recovering from an ankle surgery and am down in seattle for the tme being. I would say that there will be space for 4 or 5 prints of yours in the show. The planning mostly consists of calling artists and sending out emails. I still need to find a resource for lighting and portable hanging walls. Most of the local artists I call seem really jazzed about the event. I hope that it will help us all to see what we are capable of creating together, right here in our community. If you would like to put any energy and creativity into the event, in whatever way you feel inspired to, just let me know. Or perhaps you know of others that maybe have such inspration as well. I hope you are well David,
Morgan

David, I think it is wonderful that you are offering information/education on biking. That said, I have to ask you, is there some way that biking could be made to work for older or disabled people or people who live in the county where biking in the normal way would not be feasible could be implemented? and, in all kinds of weather...as, I know that I could not, and I know there are others like me, bike even a few blocks, especially in this cold weather, as biking stands at present.

Hi David,
Sorry bout the delayed response. I agree with you, that size of shovel should be close to perfect. The width of Red Cedar bare roots can be 6" wide, but are generally around 3 to 4 inches. Sometimes the roots stretch out to 18" long. There's not much to be done about it, except for cut off the longest roots or do a double dig.

Hi David,
You're great, let me know! I'll be talking to the bank this week to get us some operating funds. So let me know if you want Water's Edge to pay for both shovels or if you want to buy yours. I'm also going to get an auger because of the clayey soil.

Also I met with Ima Kuliana (new TW member) who has a great project going to support international foresting. Hopefully we'll be able to coordinate and support each others' work for fundraising and events.

Hi David:
You mentioned you might want to volunteer for the next event -which is tomorrow! If you are planning on coming and can be there a little early (noon) or stay a little late (4:30) to help out, that would be awesome.

Thanks, hope to see you there.

Hey David,
I just checked out your website again, and it seems to be working just fine and I really enjoy some of you photographs. A lot of the wildlife and waterfall shots are amazing. Yeah, I didn't notice any problems in viewing them and they seemed to load up pretty fast. As far as the art show, I would enjoy getting together and brainstorming. It sounds like kate clarke wants to be a part of creating it as well. My number is 360 510 7055. Feel free to call. If/when we do meet I think it would be a good idea to meet at bloom so we can get a feel for the space and create a realistic vision. The show is going to be paired with the pre-seedswap event in january. If you go to the group Gaia inspires, and read the conversation thread you will see some more discussion in reference and planning of this event. It is most likely going to be on January 16th.

Hey David, I just emailed you from the SSF email. I am wondering what the "Walk the Talk" meeting is? Do you have details or is there a page that has details?
thanks, elena

Yes I was came to plant trees with the others from Western's Students for Sustainable Foods club! Thank you for helping us plant the trees we brought. I am very excited to be a part of this group now!

Hi David,
I miss you and am glad you're available to go to some meetings with me. Look forward to setting something up, especially with the Whatcom Farm Forestry Assn. They sound really great, and exactly in line with what would work for CREP projects. The person who could talk to us is out of town till Sunday, so I'll talk to him early next week.

Hi David, Have you noticed any Blue Elderberry's around? They are ripe now and great for medicinal uses. I do have a source for some of the dark blue/black ones (at purple church), but my source for the more rare & native blue one is on Kitsap Penninsula...I just thought your good eye for fruit might have noticed...I'm also on the lookout for some ripe stink current which is ripe at this time...last I saw some was up in Olympics...Time for a walk in the woods!

Hi David, Are you the person I sat next to at the Thursday transition meeting who brought those buckets of fruit? If so, thank you for sharing the fruits of the earth! I though I recognized those pears in you pictures!
