How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Beginning to attend meetings currently coming to Sebastopol
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I work at the Farmers Market here in Sebastopol and always communicate with many people in my community about how Sebastopol could be an example of a town that could localize and become the place we all desire. I am a graduate of Humboldt State University with a degree in Natural Resource Science and Appropriate Technology and my husband and I make compost tea. We love our town.
