How might your current work contribute to the Transition movement?
My actual work is as a "channel" and much of the information has to do with this time of great change. I will do all I can to bring this from the level of ideals to the level of action.
In what ways do you personally identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I have been involved with community living and organic gardening for decades as well as home schooling and other options for sustainable and conscious living. I have lived off the grid for many years. I love to grow "starts" and set up small ultra productive/low work gardens. I would be glad to share.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
Speaking skills, writing skills, computer skills, gardening skills, shoveling shit skills and many others.
