How might your current work contribute to the sustainability movement?
Over the last few years, since we moved to 3 acres in Arroyo Grande, we have been working to improve our place with a fruit orchard and a garden. There is a landscape company down the way that had been paying to dump their waste at a landfill. We have offered to take in some of their waste and compost it. We are delighted to have the green waste and to be able to improve our soil while helping to decrease the loads to the landfill.

We are teaching our children (ages 2 & 3.5) about farm living with egg laying chickens, and lots of fresh fruits to eat right off the trees. They help us to water (their favorite) while we TRY to teach them about water conservation.

We also do little things like recycle, reduce and reuse.
In what ways do you personally identify with the Sustainability & Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I crave a sense of community. It seems like everyone is so busy with 2 income families and keeping up with the life that time to commune is lost.... myself included. I feel if there is a strong community that many of the chores in life can be shared. For example, through trading some childcare for house cleaning, having a group work day where different people benefit, sharing information from your area of expertise and learning from another's.

It is always energizing to meet people who are like minded and have similar interests!
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
Wow, let's see. I like being outside with my hands dirty and I'm not afriad of hard work. I taught outdoor education in Sonora while going to college and during that time learned a lot about conservation and sustainable living. My undergraduate degree is in Biology and then I went into the nursing field. As far what I can bring to the community... I need to learn some more about the community before I can really say what skills I have that would be useful.
