How might your current work contribute to the Transition movement?
I am a driver for the disabled and the elderly in S.F. And am going to school to be an emt. I just have a passion for common sense ways to meet people's basic needs that have nothing to do with the dow jones, knowing it is foolish for us to wait on governments to do it for us, because I believe they are ALL so wrapped up in their own self interest
In what ways do you personally identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
People need clean air, water, food, clothes, shelter, adequate sleep, recreation, and community...we can do these things ourselves. The fact is our current mainstream society is unsustainable, meaning that it is inevitable that we need to do something different....a much more simple and common sense approach to meeting all of our needs together. Any sane, clear thinking person can see that this is our future...getting back to simplicity
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
For years I have been passionate about helping to build a sustainable world society, and the ever more deteriorating situation in our mainstream world is giving me more of a sense of urgency that I need to make connections and make true investments of money, time and energy into our food security, which is the foundation of true wealth and security, not to mention the heartbeat of any society, not some digitized monetary credits that can potentially lose thier worth...I'm so fed up with the games and psycobabble of our so called "leaders". I guess what I will bring is I am able bodied, willing to learn and contribute my fair share, and am generally easy to get along with. Looking forward to learning more about what you do.
What aspects of the Transition Town movement most interests you?
I want to learn about the latest and greatest in sustainable food growing based on nutrition science and companion planting
