"This is great news for the members of Milwaukee's Transition Initiative. Members will more easily recognize the tough work involved in getting a transition initiative off the ground in a city our size when they can easily access the…"
"yes yes yes. as a kid. I had Gibbons' books. I used them endlessly to the endless dismay of those around me until I made day lily pods (unopened flwrs) with flowers embellishing. They got it-and loved them!"
Watch it online at the link below.
The advantage of viewing it with others is the discussion that follows, however, it is worth watching with or without others. It is in two parts.
Thanks for the link below. I looked over the entire website very carefully and saw that the information you refer to was from 2006 and that the website is now defunct. None of the "credible sources" were identified which is always a…"
"Once a near constant listener and supporter of NPR, I pulled the plug on so-called "Public" radio last May. I am finding that the silence in my workplace is a vast improvement over the near constant irritation of listening to what NPR…"
Why are you interested in the Transition movement?
Because it is one of the few attempts to address the future that is positive, hopeful and communal in nature.
How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Member of water group
What skills, talents, and resources do you bring to the Transition movement?
Twenty-five years of vegetable, herb and edible weed gardening experience. I own and operate a small business repairing and reupholstering furniture. I live a pretty frugal, recycle, reuse, make it yourself or do without kind of life. I have many other skills but whether or not they are appropriate to list here is another matter.
Which topics within Transition most interest you, and what are you most interested in getting out of your involvement in the Transition Movement?
Sustainable food production, edible wild plants, food preservation, water conservation, water quality and communal living. I hope to learn as much as possible and to share whatever skills and information I have with others. I hope to meet and work with others who are committed to creating strong community connections and to finding ways to reduce energy use as well as our impact on the earth and its resources.
Organizations you belong to that might collaborate with Transition
I'm going to send out another e-mail to the VGI list soon. I'd like to do monthly outings and I think there are a lot of folks itching to get back out there with a larger group.
Would you be interested in taking on more of a leadership role with these outings? The structure of the last one seemed to work well - we broke up into two smaller groups and each group had at least one somewhat experienced forager to help the others find the edibles a bit quicker/easier and help with positive ID.
