Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I've been following the movement for years now, working with sustainability issues for more and have introduced the TT idea to a group I've helped organize in my area, as well as other community members - in an ongoing educational forum on topics related to developing sustainable community.
We worked to bring Transition Training to the Ann Arbor area several years back and this was a good catalyst for important new activity.

I maintain the Transition Michigan website and also created Transition Ann Arbor and Transition Ypsilanti network sites to nurture networking.

My business website for my psychotherapy practice is:
http://www.counselinginannarbor.com/default.html
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
Its necessary, and deals with the issues while remaining positive.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I think that I'm able to stay solution focused, am able to facilitate group discussion and leave my ego at the door. I'm also able to often remember to trust the process and know that this work, if we stay out of the way, is meant to have a life of its own...

Some notes on Urban Farming

Summary of National urban farming efforts: I'd thought I'd send along these little bits of info about urban farming goings on around the country that have apparently found support from their respective cities which seem to be excited about what they are doing:

A 50-Year Farm Bill

By WES JACKSON and WENDELL BERRY

Published: January 4, 2009

THE extraordinary rainstorms last June caused catastrophic soil erosion in the grain lands of Iowa, where there were gullies 200 feet wide. But even worse damage is done over the long term under normal rainfall — by the little rills and sheets of erosion on incompletely covered or denuded cropland, and by various degradations resulting from industrial… Continue

It’s nice to have an administration that understands the importance of the family farm. Barack Obama’s plan for rural America will, wisely, place small family and organic farms above big agribusiness. Obama’s… Continue

Hi Monica. Feel free to add your comments to Kris' sustainable michigan post. And invite anybody else to do the same. We've used a Discussion structure so it can grow as additional people record their experiences.

The following would be particularly good to have recorded there:

We do a transition town study group as a sub-group of that, as after I saw Rob's video (interview) and his website i got excited and sent it around to everyone. we really do have a decent core group of folks now...

Perhaps you can get a half dozen of your group to share their individual experiences. These will be tremendously helpful when we launch TRANSITION MICHIGAN.

Welcome Monica and Ypsilanti! Great to see you here. We look forward to hearing more about your study group. To record your experiences so that others can benefit from them, go to Instructions for Starting Local Groups on Transition US and then to Transition Illinois. Be sure to ask questions as they come up.
