Thanks for the message. Forest Garden seems like a great group, I would love to learn more. Hopefully I have some time this Sunday to check out the cob structure, that would be great to get more involved. What is the organization with the Master's degree person? And how can I get in touch with him/her? I will need to coordinate with them because they would have to be my supervisor to meet the requirements of the internship. Also, I would like to get in touch with the builder in Seattle that you spoke of.
So you know a little more about me... I'm a combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan. I will graduate from WWU in Spring 2012 with a degree in Human Services and a minor in Psychology. I am currently interning with the Whatcom County Human Services manager, learning about local leadership and the relationship between county government and local organizations. I have served on the Whatcom County Veterans Advisory Board for the past year or so and have a seat for at least the next 4 years. I'm the president of the Western Veteran Community (a club for veterans and our friends, family, supporters, etc.). Lastly, I am a co-founder of a grassroots non-profit that will be in operation next year down around Seattle to help veterans transition back into civilian life.
I am much more humble than I might be making myself out to be. I just want you to know that I can be relied upon. I have large goals for natural building in Whatcom County and am going to spend the rest of my time at Western planning how I will make it happen. I hope to write a policy brief about the issue before the end of this quarter and would love to share it with you, as well as anything else I might write about it before I graduate. I chose to use my education to further my life goals. I have been blessed with a major that allows me to study and write about anything that I am interested in, so long as it's impact will help people! Last year I focused primarily on helping military/combat Veterans, this year I plan to focus more on natural building. I'm excited for the possibility to have an internship related to it! Please keep in touch.
Hi Alain. My name is Benjamin and my Girlfriend + Sister ran into you at Yorky's gas station in fairhaven and you generously gave them gAs for the car! Thank you and god bless! Anyway, you offered them (and hopefully me) work at your site on Victor St. But when she showed up to where she thought you were talking about she said it was an abandoned house and didn't feel comfortable. Can you please contact me via email or phone ?
Phone: 360 739 9768
Thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing from you!
I think I've got it straight about the workparty, and my impression is you'll have lots of volunteers. You can post it yourself as an event, if you like, and then we can feature it. But time is of the essence at this point.
Hey, if you're downtown at all I can meet you for tea on Tues or Weds. Let me know if either works. AM is best.
I just saw that you mentioned the workparty for the BSAC garden project to Jamie on the Community Asks & Offers page, and I'm wondering if you want to post the workparty as an event? My impression through Beth was that you weren't advertising the worparty, but if you want to get a few folks through the TW site, we can post the worparty event as one of the funded Home and Garden Challenge projects. Let me know, call if that's easier. 398-9750 Juliet
Hi Forest Garden,
I haven't been on this site for a long time. Yes, I am in Waldorf teacher training. I am just about to complete my second year. I am going to school in Seattle at the Sound Circle Center. They are currently accepting applications for the foundation year that will be starting in the September. The schedule is Fridays from 2pm to 9:15 and Saturdays from 8:15 to 3. The foundation year may end earlier on Saturdays. The faculty is very warm and understanding. You can get in contact with them through their website http://www.soundcircle.org.
If you have any more questions please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sorry, no; I were just in the states last fall, and don't have plans to return. However Portland is busting with Natural Builders doing workshops, there's also a few scattered round and about in Wa.; Have a look at the membership listing on www.nbnetwork.org
I actually signed up to this list as I thought it was international, but first later found out it's Wa. focused, so I'm signing off now. For further communication then please contact me per email, which you'll find on www.permalot.org .
I am already signed on as your friend, Allain, but I am still thrilled you are joining this group. Your energy is so contagious!
Welcome again! It is great for me to increase the opportunities to run into you.
