"Hi, Sarah. I'm the whole grain baker you left a comment for yesterday or today. I DO bake with whole grains now - have been doing so for about 40 years. I don't have a grain mill so I buy what I need from the ONF co-op. If I need a finer…"

Why are you interested in the Transition movement?
I have always been attracted to self-sufficiency. Now that I am retired and have more time for gardening, it's a natural extension of my previous interest. In addition, I would really like to know more about solar and wind power because energy costs are terrible!!
How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Growing food and shopping locally.
What skills, talents, and resources do you bring to the Transition movement?
Some organic gardening knowledge (but I'm always learning more, of course); some solar and wind knowledge; time
Which topics within Transition most interest you, and what are you most interested in getting out of your involvement in the Transition Movement?
Chickens, bees, gardening, baking with whole grains
Organizations you belong to that might collaborate with Transition
No others at present - on Slow Food emailing list though. Have no car - am a bus person and do not go out in the nighttime hours so a lot of meetings aren't possible for me to attend.

Thanks for the welcome Darlene. That is great that you are studying electricity. I have gardened for years and would feel lost without it. I cultivate several edible "weeds" in my garden beds and save seeds from them each year to be certain I have them always. Lucky you are retired and can spend more time gardening.

Darlene, That was quick. this is Josef again . They don't give much space here. I'll give you my email. Josbieniek@aol. I was saying that I noticed you were interested in gardening I might be able to help out with that. Have gone to several of these Transition meetings .I find a great bunch of folks of all ages attempting to find and create their part in living in a loving way with our Great Mother. I'm also a naturalist and community organizer and yes someone that is a maturing baby boomer, shall we say. bunch of us have formed a Elder wisdom group in the riverwest area you might find of interest. So you can email me for further info. Be well and Happy Valentine's Day.
Hi again Darlene, I saw you are interested in baking with whole grains. Do you already? do you have a grain Mill? i recommend one if you don't. not one that makes flour but one that rolls oats. also I have a blog post about no knead bread if you are into that. http://sarahworks.blogspot.com/
Hi Darlene! Welcome to Transition Milwaukee! I enjoyed reading your comments on your profile - we are learning about and facilitating projects around the same items you're interested in. I encourage you to take a peak around our website to learn about upcoming events and the various workgroups that are gathered around specific topics. We get together in-person once a month at the Urban Ecology Center, which we call our "Hub" meetings. The next one is Monday, February, 22 at 6:30pm. Let me know if you have any questions in the meantime! Hope to see you on the 22nd (if not sooner!) :)
