Profile Information

How might your current work contribute to the sustainability movement?
I just wrote a book about urban homesteading, which is a permaculture and transition-oriented book for city dwellers. it's very beautiful -- illustrations and photos -- well-written, and inspirational. While it makes it clear that the situation is urgent, it offers tons of different ways people can get started, and continue, to make a difference in their daily lives. I think it could be a useful tool for individuals, families, workshops, educational institutes.
In what ways do you personally identify with the Sustainability & Transition movement? Why are you interested?
i am interested for obvious reasons - things are coming undone and we need to find a better way. I identify with transition in that i think this is what is happening and needs to happen, right now.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
i am a writer, a performer, a healing artist, and a community based cultural change agent. I can speak in front of people, write clear and inspiring tracts (!), and work directly one on and one and in groups of people to help with healing work.
Your Personal Website (if you have one)
What aspects of the sustainability movement most interests you?
