Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I am one of a core group of people that has been instrumental in initiating a "living local" collective of people that meets once a month to brain storm, share and exchange ideas of how we all might prepare effectively for the changes ahead.
With an English background in gardening, a vested interest and continued study in permaculture, I contribute to our "Live Local" group by being an active member of the Gardening Team. This involves researching ways we can grow more of our own produce in a high elevation community with a shorter growing season.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
When I was five years of age I wanted to live in a teepee and now at nearly 55, that desire has not changed.
I have always had that innate "knowing" that a time would come when we would need to pool our resources and give back to the earth rather than taking from her continually!
I believe I hold the same DNA as my ancestors and therefore have all the tools necessary to create what I need and do it in a way that is sustainable to our precious environment and that fosters a better world for the generations to come.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I am an educator, an art professor, a yoga instructor and a retreat facilitator. Through all my teachings I bring an awareness of the impact our carbon footprint has on the planet. One of the areas I teach in, is Fashion Design, which happens to be one of the earths biggest polluters. I seek to bring my students awareness to this sad fact over an above the glossy glamour portrayed by this industry and educate them to the availability of alternative and sustainable fabrics, dyes, and technology, together with better practices of safe and fair production and trade.
Your Favorite Books/Websites/Blogs/RSS Feeds for Information about the Transition Movement

The Ringing Cedars Series - Anastasia, by Vladimir Megre
