I am a small scale organic farmer and sustainable agriculture educator, an avid cyclist, and I joyfully live a life of voluntary simplicity.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
Preventative health care is my central life focus. To be effective, preventative health care must be practiced on the biospheric scale. We (we as individuals and as a species) must transition away from short-term, extractive, petrol-based culture to long-term, reciprocal, ecologically-based culture if we are to achieve true health.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
Interests: Food Justice, holistic health care, seed sovereignty
Skills/talents/resources: seed saving, whole foods cooking, food storage, respectful wild edible food gathering, Wilderness First Responder certified, bio-intensive urban agriculture, LMP w/ focus on trauma massage, public speaking, writing, researching

Hi Matia! Received your phone message. I'll try to be at your home tonight if the garden here will release me from all the work. If you all want to meet out here tonight, that would be fine too. Eric knows the location, as does Chris W. Best to phone or text if any changes. I spoke with Brian K at I.Farm and he shared some ideas, & continues to plant seeds!
Welcome Matia Indigo Jones! Great to have another farmer on this community network! Thank you for the work you do speaking on "Seed Sovereignty: A Way to Food Security, Cultural Preservation and Environmental Stewardship"
