Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition?
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
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
University
Where did you hear about Transition Whatcom and how did you find our community network website?

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!

HI Matia!  I attended the 1st Whatcom Food Security Network (ie MOVEMENT) yesterday.  It was great!  I hope you can plan on attending the next one in September.  Here is a link to the discussion that Laura R of Sustainable B'ham started....There should be a way to request to be on her mailing list. - http://transitionwhatcom.ning.com/group/foodsecurityworkgroup/forum/topics/invitation-to-join-the

I'll also send you invite to TW Food Security group if you haven't already found it.

Bet you're still planting & weeding...At least the rain is watering for us!

Pss - Here is the link to join some of the networks on this site. I was not able to forward them to you.

When you sign on to TW, you can then click the 'join' button. 

All these groups have folks that are busy 'doing' and are Not chatty like some.

In 2009 a core group of us started the first B'ham seed-swaps.

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"

http://transitionwhatcom.ning.com/xn/detail/2723460:Event:48206?xg_source=activity

 

Its planting time & the spring blooms are at peak! I'm looking forward to connecting with you!  Give a call if you can swing by to visit for tea or walk.

The month of May is amazing with all the garden farm chores that need to happen all at once, and so many folks wanting extra help in their gardens!

I'll forward you a couple of the TW group networks I think you'll be interested in!
