I'm not sure yet how involved with the Transition I will be... but I would like to be involved in any way that I am needed! I have plenty of free time and am itching to get moving on the many problems we have to work on.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I see the Transition movement as a structured yet flexible framework that can be used to make the community more resilient and ready to make the transition to a lower-energy form. I'm not sure what it will look like, but I am very excited that there are people who are committed enough to start working on it now - instead of just waiting for later when we will be forced to change. My personal interest is in food - food security, resiliency, local food, organic, preservation/stores, and all that! I really just stumbled upon the movement while searching for groups working on sustainability issues in Bellingham, and I am glad I did!
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
I'm very interested in working on local food systems and low-energy household management.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?

Where did you hear about Transition Whatcom and how did you find our community network website?
I found out about TW when I moved to Bellingham a few years ago, and was looking for a neighborhood or city-wide group working on peak oil issues.

Hi Hanna! I saw your posting for researching water from rainwater barrels on the group Community Asks & Offers. Lots of folks have responded, including us.
If you still need folks for the study, you could post your email & phone number either on our comment page, or back on the discussion itself. When you have enough folks, would you X out your Request to help us keep the postings current? Thanks!
Do you still need houses for your rainbarrel study? We have a big water collection tub that we use to water gardens, and we'd be happy to participate. We live in the York neighborhood south of Lakeway. Message me if you're interested! --Chris Wolf
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.
