Thanks for the note. We do have a couple rain barrels left from the 2 sales we had this summer. They are $40 each fully constructed 55 gallon rain barrels. We keep them at a community garden and orchard initiative we started in…"

I believe that it is a good plan, something that people can do to prepare for what the near future could bring.
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 very much interested in your rain water drums. I have a large backyard where bamboo has grown for years, but I would like to see if I can plant a garden again. Somebody suggested a greenhouse instead, because of the bamboo roots. Anyway, I would like to buy a drum whenever is available. Charles and I are trying to get more people interested in Transition - we have a few! Sometime in the fall I will be teaching a tofu workshop at our food co-op. You are invited to come (I don't think we live very far). It would be nice, for the people interested in the movement, to talk to somebody who has been involved for a longer period of time. Charles did publish an article that mentioned Transition, and many people read it.
Look forward to being in touch with you.
Resurreccion, New London
I'm a big believer in social networks -- where everybody is "in charge" of everything. I see you're interested in starting a transition initiative in Norwalk, CT. Great. Have you added Norwalk to the TRANSITION CONNECTICUT site yet.... I'll be glad to help.
