Hi Behrouz, Re active neighborhoods, many folks on the 'southside' are sensitive to energy & food transition issues; however they may not all identify with transition work, since they have been doing it long before the book was written.
There are many neighborhoods in the B'ham area, most all of them connected by the level coast geography so getting around with bike or walk or bus is easy. The Birchwood & Columbia neighborhoods have some good soil in their backyards that more & more folks are digging up & growing food.
Quarterly there are two transition meetings hosted by our Twog, the Assembly, and the Hub. This Sunday the Hub will meet, and that would be good place to get a sense of what is happening in neighborhoods. Here is link if you'd like to attend http://transitionwhatcom.ning.com/events/transition-whatcom-quarterly-hub-meeting The next public Twog meetings will most likely be in Novemember.
I am rarely able to attend these indoor meetings. Best chance to meet me is at our annual winter seed-swap, or our upcoming NW Barter Fair & Farmers Seed Swap mostly likely Nov 5th. There are some great classes offered at Inspiration Farm with Brian & team. This sunday Dov will present a class on Barefoot Doctor Medicine.
Hope this helps. I am rarely online during these warm days of harvest & being outside!
