How might your current work contribute to the Transition movement?
Right now, I am working toward a horticultural/agricultural major in school. I really get fulfillment out of working with my hands and plants and feel that I would be a solid figure in the Transition movement.
In what ways do you personally identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I feel that with the problems of the economy and our dependence on dirty petroleum, that people need to start looking towards ways that they can become more self sufficient locally, raising their own fruits and vegetables, and reducing harm to the earth. I am interested in the Transition movement because I feel like I could learn some new things as well as help to innovate on current concepts.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
I just recently moved down to San Luis Obispo from the bay area, where I was in the Horticulture club and in Horticulture class. I received an A in Horticulture and have always felt like I was fairly intelligent and gifted. I have been told in previous jobs that I am a hard worker and I believe that I would be a valuable asset to the Transition movement.
What aspects of the Transition Town movement most interests you?
The aspect of becoming more productive and earth friendly is an attractive part of the Transition movement to me. I like the idea of linking up with people that have common interests and goals and living in a positive lifestyle.
Your Favorite Books/Websites/Blogs/RSS Feeds for Information about the Transition Movement
I actually heard about the Transition movement from a guy that mentioned it on the bus, one day when I was coming home from school, so I have a vague understanding of its entirety.
