MIMIC THIS! When you get invited to events 3000 miles away (or 20 of them just across town), use COPY & PASTE with the really interesting events to seed your own community's plans for similar events. Why start from scratch.... Beg, borrow and mimic! More....

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Just beginning to learn about it and trying to find my niche.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I know the only way for us to have a real quality of life is to stop letting the rich and powerful play their games, and to begin moving all of us towards the future. I think we do not need to wait until a crisis comes, we can begin now to make changes that will make us all viable in the future.
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 some ideas and plans to begin to bring fresh food to our citizens living in "food deserts" on a small scale, one family at a time. This involves overcoming some of the initial barriers faced by people in these areas.

On the local scene, does Baltimore (or some broader geographic area) 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 to what's happening in Baltimore 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 -- http://transitionus.ning.com/groups/group/new. I'll meet you at the door to launch and build the page.
