"  Ugh.  Just looked at the MA grange hall-Dunstable- page-totally top down.  The old grange hall in West Tisbury MA still has events such as the farmers market and occasional movies-that one is awesome!"

Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I took the training course and hope to get started soon. I am on
the steering (hate that word), or initiative committee of Somerville, Massachusetts.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
It is a way to gather all the activist and normal everyday groups together and see how much they have in common.
It is a way to open our eyes to see that no matter what happens, we will try as hard as we can. It is a painful but necessary awakening.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I took a permaculture design course and am looking forward to teaching people.

Jen -- Hi!  I saw your depaving comment.  Love it-- making it so the Earth can actually breathe there, and drink andandand. :-)  You may be interested in the fine work and words of one of my compadres-in-arms out here, Brock Dolman.  I invite you to check out his Bioneers presentation.  "Slow it, sink it, spread it" is his mantram... for Planet Water. cheers!

Hi Jen,

I did my undergraduate work in Environmental Studies at Tufts back in 1971 through 1975. Lived in Carmichael Hall, Miller Hall, North Cambridge (Massachusetts Avenue, on the other side of Teal Square), Sawyer House, and Tao Street in Somerville.

Lot's of water under the bridges since then. Been many places, learned many things, crossed many rivers, etc. I'm in Eugene, OR now.

Slumberville, especially when you get up around Tufts/Davis Square has such high quality sturdy housing, but very little in the way of gardening space. However, with imagination, that sort of problem can be dealt with. For example, you may want to look at my essay "Demand Side Management and Transportation Planning", which you can find (now on page 2) of the Discussion Section of this Transition United States website and/or at my "Peoples Equity Union" site at

Say hi to the folks in Massachusetts and New England for me.

I'm a Work kin for peace and cooperation.

With much love and care,

Mike Morin

I have no idea how to join the state without re-entering all the previous information. Is that necessary?

Howdy Jen!

So glad to make your acquaintence and share in friendship! :-)

Seems to me you mentioned an interest and appreciation for watershed considerations but now I can't find that post. Care to remind me?

Yes, I definitely love the sense of place that comes with water cycle and bioregional awareness and connectivity.

Hope you're having a great day!

Welcome Jen! Great to see you here on Transition U.S. and Transition Somerville. "... It is a way to gather all the activist and normal everyday groups together and see how much they have in common..." -- Perfect. Try encouraging some of the many groups out there to register themselves as Groups on the Mass site. Do you have any idea how many similar groups there may be in Mass?

If you haven't already done so, come and see the new US Transition Page we rolled out last week. As this page develops, it will become a map of Transition resources across all ning sites. All 50 states are now active. Many state sites are brand new! Go to TRANSITION MASSACHUSETTS and sign in. Invite others. Enter some of your local events. Start Discussions. Make Transition! Have fun!
