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....
Welcome Sue, another friend from New Zealand, BTW, I will be in New Zealand the last three weeks of September, starting the 14th, landing in Aukland, visiting Transitioners and doing workshops on social networking. Can I connect you with Deirdre Kent, Helen Dew or Margaret Jefferies?
Welcome to GLOBAL TRANSITION IN ACTION. You mention in your registration "...Subtropical permaculture & organics, self sufficient in veg, fruit & seafood, simple living ethos,member of Slow Food Te Hiku, Tai Tokerau Organics, Transition Towns Kaitaia....." You sound busy! Great places to put your energies.
Please join and click anytime on Transition group members in New Zealandto join your neighbors in discussions and events. Click on any person's photo to say hello and find out more about their Transition interests. Reinforce the good things they are doing. Mention something that particularly interests you. Let me know if you would like to be an Admin on this page to help build and maintain your group's portfolio. Have fun!
On the local scene, it would be spot on for all our members if you would consider including a link to Transition Houhora in our registry of organizations, localities, companies, products, services, 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.
