How might your current work contribute to the Transition movement?
My family and I are interested, ready and willing to dive into the movement! We find ourselves becoming more and more local and even self-sufficient (small measures at a time). Our dream is to build a community on some fertile land with other families in the SLO area.
In what ways do you personally identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I have a deep knowing of the impending "fall" of conventional society - all is in perfect time and I am so excited!
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
My educational background is in forestry, hydrology, geology, native plants and fire ecology. I am immersing myself in homesteading arts: spinning and knitting, cheese-making, homeschooling, and gardening.
What aspects of the Transition Town movement most interests you?
My role is as an educator and catalyst. My strengths are bringing people together, consensus building and project planning to completion. I have a deep intuitive streak.
