How might your current work contribute to the Transition movement?
We are Beef Producers. My family & I raise and I market Certified Organic 100% Grass Fed Beef. We live in Pozo on the same Ranch that my grandparents and great grandparents did.
In what ways do you personally identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
There is a lot of knowledge that will be lost when the older generation passes on, we need to step up and learn from them now. Before it is too late.
As a member of the Central Coast Ag Co-Op, I am interested in community involvement in the "Buy Local" program and consumer education regarding "safe food". Know your farmer and Rancher.
I am interested in meeting more of our neighbors and in bringing back the days of helping one another.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
As I said before, I live on a family owned & operated working cattle Ranch. This is something that I want to be able to pass on to my children and grandchildren.
As a 4th generation cattle rancher, I feel that I have considerable knowledge to share with other individuals in this community.
What aspects of the Transition Town movement most interests you?
I am very interested in all aspects of the Transition movement. I am interested in answering questions about raising Beef Cattle from those persons who may like more information...regardless of whether they would be making a purchase. We welcome questions regarding our land, our growing protocol and other issues surrounding the livestock business.
