Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
There are several chapters nearby so I take books from our online bookstore to Transition meetings. We carry books on self-sufficiency, sustainability, and conscious living.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
Our online bookstore is located on our research farm 20 miles from the nearest town. We grow or raise most of our food and generally journey into town only on weekends for animal feed and to run errands. We are hoping to eventually use horses for some of the farm work.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
Thru our bookstore newsletter I try to write about ways to become more self-sufficient, to do more things locally and to develop relationships within your community that can help the cohesiveness develop that will become more and more important as the Transition movement grows.
Your Favorite Books/Websites/Blogs/RSS Feeds for Information about the Transition Movement
We have tons of how-to books and videos for folks that want to try things for the first time. Our forum also is a great source for people who want to ask questions of those that are already living sustainably.

Your Personal Website (if you have one)

Suggestions you have for improving our Registration questions. Getting to know you better.
Maybe a brief description of their community. Our farm is 20 miles from a town, but has about 15 families on it. We may eventually have to organize a relay type situation to get supplies out to the elderly or to us, the last family before the ferry during bad weather or gas shortages. Others might get ideas of how to organize their own communities if they read of others.

Hi Donna,

Franz told me about you. I just joined the network. I'm 1 hour north of KC, Missouri. Do you know of other interesting efforts in Missouri?

Here is a message I sent to the Economy group:

As far as we know, we are a unique experiment at reinventing the entire infrastructure of communities – in what is known as the Global Village Construction Set. We are also the only group that we know of who is actively developing Open Business Models in physical production, in a facility that also tests these business models first hand.

We have initiated the First World Conference on Open Source Ecology, where we are developing the technology and ecology tools for post-industrial settlements. I would like to ask any of you to consider attending - and help us recruit other participants.

If you can’t make it to the conference, consider supporting this very important work by subscribing to the 1000 True Fans campaign

We are taking this work very seriously, because of its potential. If you have suggestions on our work and approach, please share them. Can you recommend others who may be interested? We believe that this work can gain immense momentum - the trick is to get out a clear message - which we just started to do.

Sincerely, Marcin

Factor e Farm home team

Hi Donna, thanks for appreciating our work at Global Villages. One of our most active collaborators is not far from you: see Marcin Jakubowskis Weblog with lots of Videos. As far as Tony is concerned, he travels back and forth to the States from Indonesia, He once gave me a copy of his book which was never published but someone "borrowed" that from me. I think he can easily be reached via BlooLagoon.

Hola Donna :)

I'm actually just south of Springfield, south of Ozark a bit. I just don't get out much because there's so much to keep me busy here :) I'm not sure where HartsHorn Mom is but I like the name.

and now I'm off to check out your book store.

Hi, Donna. I not sure where Hartshorn is but there is a lot going in the Springfield area and hopefully we will have somethings in the St. Louis area soon.
