"Thank you Elizabeth (was great to meet you on Saturday!) and thank you Alex - I actually just noticed the permaculture potluck too - we hope we can make it. Looking forward to keeping in touch with everyone and meeting more people.

"Hi all -
We are new to permaculture and the transition movement and live in Waltham, MA, 9 miles outside of Boston. We were wondering if any happenings are taking place in the area so we can get more involved and meet more people?
An online community for people who are concerned about the interconnected challenges of Peak Oil, Climate Change and Economic Instability. This group is a spinoff of the Greater Boston Peak Oil/Climate Change Meetup.
How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
We are currently working on our Permaculture Design Certificate in Northhampton, MA with the hopes of establishing edible food forests for ourselves and others. We are looking for people to connect, share and learn from in Eastern, MA specifically as well as across the state.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
We want to live locally and sustainably. We want to work directly for our needs instead of trade labor for wages to buy our needs. We don't want to eat terrible food anymore, and don't want our friends, family and community to either.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement?
We have a website with a blog and are working on sharing D.I.Y. knowledge we gain from our Permaculture Design Course as well as from growing our own food.
