Hi Heather,  I'm sorry I missed your comment!  Thanks for the welcome and I look forward to meeting you as well.  Thanks for the feedback on the logo.  It was inspired by the deer encounters I've had since coming to Bellingham and my love for the wisdom of trees.  :)

Hi Heather,

  I am northeast of Barkley village too.  Maybe we're neighbors?  I look forward to meeting you soon.  I will try to make it to the next roving garden work party, it sounds like fun.

Democracy Cafe- December 29th at Bagelry

How Can We Minimize Our Ecological Footprint? - In our families, businesses, local community, & our government" - Is our December topic.

RSVP is requested by our host Terry Garret at or call 676-7525.

Location: The Bagelry- 1319 Railroad Ave

Time: Saturday December 29, 2012 from 5:45-9pm.

Coffee, tea, and light snacks will be available.

Join us in creating this 'World Cafe'” style of knowledge sharing conversation, with members of Transition Whatcom and Living Democracy.

The book World Café by Juanita Brown & David Isaacs inspires our Democracy Cafe' through 'knowledge sharing”. We each have a special voice to be shared & heard.

Here’s how Democracy Café works: Each mini-conversation rotates between tables with 4-5 people. At 30” or so, we play musical tables and everyone moves to a new table to converse with an entirely new group. One person stays at the original table as a “host” of the ideas the group has come up with. The others leave as “ambassadors” of the ideas from their table & go on to a different table. A new round of discussions begin with the table host presenting the ideas generated by the first group & the ambassadors joining in with the ideas brought with them from their first table discussions. After 30” another table change takes place, and then another. The ideas created are “cross pollinated” again & again; usually creating a result that is far beyond anything a single person or round table discussion would come up with.

At the end, the table notes are placed on the wall so everyone can look them over. A whole group discussion takes place over what came up. Personal & family improvements might be New Years resolutions. Community improvement ideas can be presented to the city & county. National ideas can be communicated to our representatives.

Hello, hello! Lovely to see you here on Transition Whatcom! I'm finding some difficulty traversing around the site. So much information!! I'd love to offer workshops for the transition people, but can't figure out how to go about doing that. Any advice? Thank you!

Hi Heather,

Thanks for connecting with me here. I don't log on very often, but I want to make it more habitual, because there are so many cool people to meet and things I want to participate in around town.

I'm planning on checking out the Quarterly Meeting this Sunday. Maybe I'll see you there.

We have a plot in the Cordata garden! We're A-4 I think. Or maybe A-5. The second to last A. It's been awesome. I've never really gardened before and I was amazed at how relatively easy it's been. You just plant it, and it grows! And I'll check out that other link you sent me. Thanks!
