How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Just heard about it on a program on my public radio. Loved what I heard and wish to be connected to the movement.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I believe strongly and practice reducing energy usage and having many skill and crafts that have been lost.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I HAVE MANY SKILLS. I MAKE HOMEMADE SOAPS, CLEANERS, HANKERCHIEFS, CLOTHES, CHEESE, YOGURT, COSMETICS, PEST CONTROLS, CANDLES, PICKLES, KEFIR, ETC. I AM A GARDENER, NATURAL FOODS COOK, ARTIST. I WALK AND USE PUBLIC TRANSPORT. I LOVE CONNECTING WITH LIKE-MINDED FOLKS.

Just started out, but I really like airings of alternative radio.com and new dimensions as well as much more content I get on public radio. Love Bill Maher's stuff

On the local scene, does Albuquerquehave a Transition-supporting website, or blog, or listserv, or Facebook, or Meetup? If so, it would be spot on for all our members if you would consider including a link to Albuquerque in our registry of organizations, localities, companies, products, services, Twitterers, Facebooks, Meetups, etc. supporting Transition and Sustainability. Here's the page to create the link. That way we can introduce our two groups to each other. I'll be glad to help launch and build your link.
One more thing. It would be super to see your photo -- Click on Choose File and then follow instructions. Let me know if you need assistance. I'll be delighted to do some photoshopping if needed.
