How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I am new to the 'transition movement', but having been reading thinking and talking about the basic concept with friends and family for years especially regarding local food production. I have many fruit trees(mostly peaches, apricots and apple) and several currently fallow gardens in my yard, which is almost half an acre
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I love the Earth and believe humans need to be in touch with nature and each other, living in communities that foster a strong sense of purpose, unity, and a common desire to love, honor and protect our natural environment, both locally and globally.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
I am a Registered Nurse, organic gardener and yoga practitioner for over 30 years, with a passion for voluntary simplicity, soil ecology, mycoremediation, and topics related to holistic health and wellness (impact of soil ecology on food nutrition, the role of food, meditation and yoga as medicine in enhancing heart, brain and immune function, and reversing lifestyle related disease processes such as aging, arthritis, cancer, heart disease, MS and more).
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement?
I hope to share my skills and knowledge with others, develop a greater sense of community involvement and contribute to the momentum of this worthy cause.

In your local community, does Manitou Springs have a Transition-supporting website, or blog, or listserv, or Facebook, or Meetup where Transition subjects are dealt with? If so, it would be spot on for all our Colorado members if you would consider including Manitou Springs in our registry of organizations, localities, virtual topics, companies, products, services, Twitterers, Facebooks, Meetups, etc. that support Transition and sustainability. What an opportunity for you to contribute to your neighbors!
