How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
activist in sustainable agriculture, community development, education/ greening of schools
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
We will soon be forced to work together as small communities, to feed and nourish ourselves - just for starters. I choose to welcome and work toward a paradigm shift rather than accept it as victims of a crisis. I believe that when we finally come together (and challenge the "wealth paradigm") we will regain much of the happiness and wellness lost to many at present.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I am currently seeking an answer to this question, which is why I want to join the group.

On the local scene, does Mendon (or some broader geographic area) have a Transition-supporting website, or blog, or listserv, or Facebook, or Meetup? If so, it would be spot on for all our members if you would consider including a link to Mendon in our registry of organizations, localities, companies, products, services, Twitterers, Facebooks, Meetups, etc. supporting Transition and Sustainability. Here's the page to create the link -- http://transitioninaction.com/groups/group/new. I'll be glad to help launch and build your link. What do you think...?
