Laird, I saw your comment to Helen Loughrey, ...a weekly green newsletter/index, and don't have time for much more. If you would like to see a copy of my newsletter, just request one by sending me your email address; it is much too long to include here.
It would be super if you'd consider adding a link to your index in our registry of organizations, products, services, Twitterers, Facebooks, Meetups, etc. supporting Transition and Sustainability -- http://transitionus.ning.com/groups/group/new.
Love your reading list! I am just outside Annapolis off Central Avenue.
Bowie is not far. I am going to a T4T training hosted by Ecolocity DC.
Are you going? Anyway delighted to see somebody nearby is also aware of the predicament and Transition solutions. If you want to build it, they will come. You may be aware of the Greenbelt Transition group already. We also have a possible TT forerunner happening at Meetup if you want to check into it. It is focuses on the economics storm arriving now, with peak oil & climate storms soon to follow . www.meetup.com/SunsetLifeboat
Welcome Laird. Great to see your interest in Transition!
http://transitionus.ning.com/group/linktransitionmarylandusa is your link to the new Transition page for the State of Maryland. Feel free to join in the activities. Use the COMMENT WALL to say Hello to the others. Reinforce the good things they are doing. Mention something you're interested in. Ask a question. Start a discussion. Let me know if you would like to be an Admin on this page to help build and maintain your group's Resume. Have fun!
One more thing, does Bowie have a Transition-supporting website, or blog, or listserv, or Facebook, or Meetup? If so, it would be enlightening to all our members if you would consider adding a link to Bowie in our registry of organizations supporting Transition and Sustainability -- http://transitionus.ning.com/groups/group/new.
