Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Working statewide and locally on promoting relocalization and the myriad cross-cutting solutions to the enormous crises we're facing -- as a state, as a nation, as a species, in our communities, etc.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I like the positive, visionary framing about where we can be going and how to use the current crisis to bridge to that kind of future.

Hi Eli! I was just thinking how useful it would be if you posted something in the Forum about the Relocalization Meeting on 10/18. I don't think there is any info on this site about it. I would not even have known about it except someone I ran into happened to mention it. Thanks!

Eli, who were those people from Medford, at the meeting on August 3? They sat directly across the table from me. They were talking about a neighbor of theirs who has an incredibly elaborate, incredibly productive garden. I would like to try to see it, sometime before the summer is over!
