How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Brand spanking new. Just read about it in YES! Magazine. But I'm interested in seeing what I can take home to Huntsville, Texas.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I agree that nothing short of a transition of values reflected in how we live will deter or at least ameliorate the crisis that is no longer looming over the horizon, but is immediately impending.
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 no group, though I am part of a growing community of concerned people. I am a pastor and am privileged to speak into this community with some trust. I am actively working towards encouraging a local economy here through Conversation Cafes, films, and organizing for a Farmers Market and Community Garden. I think I'm mostly about learning at this point.
Your Favorite Books/Websites/Blogs/RSS Feeds for Information about the Transition Movement
All I know about is YES! Magazine, so far.
I am going to include two websites I own but haven't developed as of yet. I hope to use them for local input on this subject. One is sharetheharvest.info and the other is below.

One more thing, on the local scene, does Huntsville have 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 for Huntsville in our registry of organizations, products, services, Twitterers, Facebooks, Meetups, etc. supporting Transition and Sustainability. Here's the page to create the link -- http://transitionus.ning.com/groups/group/new.
