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....
dear les, nice to hear from you. my skills in doing this are crying for improvement. so please take this into consideration. i am still visualizing my garden. it's been years. can't do it here. but have been enjoying the roses here that are on there last bloom. mary
Sorry for the delay in my response. I was in the process of moving my office.
Thanks you for your warm welcome and support for Gaia Psychology's mission!
I joined the Missouri group...Thank you.
I am somewhat unclear about this portion of your message: "On the local scene, it would be spot on for all our members if you would consider including a link to http://www.gaiapsychology.org 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. That way we can introduce our two groups to each other. I'll be glad to help launch and build your link." Is the link to create a subgroup for Transitions in Action?
Hi Les, thanks for the welcome message. Rochester, NY doesn't have a local Transition website/group/meetup etc as far as I know (I've done some searching). This is why I found and joined this social network in order to try to connect with other transition-minded folks in Rochester. I'll share any links if a Rochester group begins to materialize. Thanks again!
Thanks for the lovely introduction message. I felt my heartstrings pull when I say your place of residence. I grew up in Brighton and went to school in Boulder. I recently moved to Flagstaff from San Diego to reconnect with the mountains, snow and my partner :)
My family and I are moving up north to start a new life in Kerikeri where I hope to join up with the transition town movement already underway. If you do make it back to NZ drop me a note and if you can't make it up to KK, I'm happy to drop down for a coffee and a chat.
I am active at occupycafe.org now, too. It's growing much faster than permaculturehub (:-(). I keep posting links to discussions and blogs here. There is incredibly little overlap in the memberships, as far as I can tell. Please consider doing what you can to connect the two. Big opportunity for bigger movement, IMO.~D
I've recently started a group on Permaculturehub (www.permaculturehub.com), encouraging people who facilitate online permaculture related social communities to come together and discuss how we can collaborate to best achieve our common goals.
I appreciate that you are probably very busy, so if you are able to join up, please feel no obligation to contribute - it would be great simply to be able to call on your insights when the timing is right (and hopefully have some of the crew check out this site based on your profile info)!
Thanks again for your contributions to these online conversations.
Thanks Les. You might like to see the slight changes and additions to my profile. Especially see my "other" website http://robin.net.nz which is very relevant to smaller communities. Is there anyone singing from the same hymnbook in the US? I am also glad to have criticisms and suggestions! Cheers Robin Hoare Rawene NZ
Thanks for the welcome message. I went ahead and added a link to Earthship Biotecture on the page you directed me to. I'm still working my way around this site, trying to familiarize myself with it, so I hope all went well with the post. I do feel like I should make clear that I'm not the founder or creator of earthships; they began well before I was born, in Taos, New Mexico, by Michael Reynolds. I included that information with the link I created.
It would be awesome to get a dialogue going with the folks there about building sustainable housing communities here in the Upper Peninsula.
