How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Only trying to educate about fossil fuels, community gardens and energy in general
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I lived off the grid for over 30 years making my own electricity and gardening. Was active in the alternative energy business and politics in the 70s. I am a retired licensed psychologist and am more concerned about the trauma and culture shock of this change than the physical applications. I am presently developing with my partner a small fruit and apple orchard with a design for value added products for sale or trade.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
With more learning and educational skills. I am currently helping some college age people look at sustainability with a cold, hard eye.
