Hi Travis,

Are you selling berries this year? If yes I'm interested in blueberries and black currants.

Thanks Angela MacLeod

Hello Travis. I visited your website....not sure how to go about purchasing, minimum? Family members of mine and I are interested in blueberries and the black current...also about the result of the fruit too. Thank you, kindly.

Hey Travis


Shannon Maris here..

I have an opportunity to get a free Toyota camper van and I am wondering if it could be converted to diesel. I am waiting to here back from the owner on the year. model, cc's, etc.

It has a blown engine so why not pop a diesel in it, instead of another gas engine.

It's a toyota so I am hoping to find a re-manuf. replacement engine from overseas, or something more reasonably priced than a new engine from Toyota.

Any tips or resources you have would be appreciated.

Hi Travis
I'd like to talk to you about your blueberry bushes for sale. I visited your website but didn't see anyway to contact you from there. I've heard that different types of blueberries bloom and fruit at different times so you could get a few different types and have blueberries through the summer. I'd like to know more about that and what types you have. Could you give me a call please? Angela MacLeod 733-3541

Cool! I would like five to start. Also, do you still have blueberry bushes?

Hey Travis- the black currants are incredible. I made liqueur, jelly, and syrup, nearly black and all full of flavor. I feel like I should take a spoonful of the syrup daily as a health supplement! Do you still have berry bushes for sale?

HI Travis,
Ive got a few pizza ovens to be built and possibly a earth bag cold storage project this summer and in early fall I plan to plaster some of my cob house. I will keep the building group posted as projects unfold. If you hear of any possible projects i would be happy to consult or facillatate a workshop.
in community,

It was great to meet you at the Community Living Meeting last night. It turns out that Kelcey my wife has purchased Blue Berry bushes from you at your house. It was great to hear that you are transitioning away from IKO, I currently work for Mills Electric who did work for IKO and am also looking to transition away from the industrial industry in the near future.

Today, I cut sod in preparation of planting the blueberry plants I purchased from you. It appears that the soil has a higher than average clay content. Do you have any suggestions for the proper type of soil amendment(s)?

I believe blueberries to be a perfect food and I'd like to do this right. Any tips you have to offer would be appreciated.

Hi Travis,
I am very sorry that I haven't gotten back to you in the last 5 months. I work so much, care for my 90 year old mom and help with grandchildren and don't have time for email. I would like to know if there are any Samish neighborhood meetings coming up. I want to be involved whenever I can grab some time. Thank You!! Jodi Tranter

Hi Travis, I hope you are well. I took my Permaculture Design Course (commonly referred to as a "PDC") at Inspiration Farm just north of Bellingham. It was a 5-month course with one intensive weekend a month, so we got to participate on the farm all through the summer season. It was a really great course; I learned more than I had even hoped for, and made a lot of great friends. There is another PDC taught out on Orcas Island too, at the Bullocks Brothers Permaculture Homestead. I think they teach their whole course in a 3-week residential format, and having learned from Doug Bullock a few times, I am sure their course is AMAZING. You can check out both of these learning sites at their websites: and I'm happy to talk with you more if you like; my phone is 961-9028. Blessings, --Chris

Hi Travis:

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. I need people in my neighborhood group!!

Thanks, hope to see you there.

Hi Travis: I'm not sure at the moment. I need to check in with the rest of the team and see if we are at a place where adding to the group would be productive. What is your specialty in mechanical engineering?

Travis- Re the Yew St & Samish Transition neighbor's group.
The shared mountain watershed you all share is Lookout Moutain.
You are each part of the "NW Lookout Mountain Watershed".

Hi Travis ~ What's the story with the blueberry bushes, are they available for purchase above and beyond the Perennial Project. I'm hoping to plant some more blueberry patches in town, and it would be nice to donate some more for the school gardens sprouting up. Thanks, Chris Elder

Travis, I just found my old 1977 book giving text & drawings on producing energy from stationary bicycle. If you are interested to take a look at it, let me know & I'll bring to an event we both are attending, or you can swing by here sometime....lots of old bicycle parts floating around, maybe even to old...ISBN #0-87857-178-7 published by Rodale Press.

One of these bicycle-generators runs a smoothie machine on the rural side of Maui at an ecological farm....If you want I could try to dig up the smoothie stands phone number if you want to try to call & network with them...I don't remember if they left the wheels on just for the visual effect.
