David Olivero left a comment for Christi L Brown
"Christi, My opinion, attending the feb 10th meeting is definitely best - you'll get to meet the garden coordinators in person, and check out the Grange. I think reserving a plot can wait until then. I'll look forward to learning from you…"

"Hi David, i would like to secure a bed for my scouts to work in this summer. How can I do this? Is it best to attend the meeting Feb. 10? Certainly we could deliver a check tomorrow to be assured a plot. I don't want to bring this up to the…"

Christi L Brown replied to David Braden's discussion The 2010 Gardens in the group Transition Westminster/Arvada/Broomfield
"Have you tried the 3 sisters method of corn, beans, and squash planted together? I agree that corn is best left to the experts, but it does give the beans something to climb and provides shade for the squash. Just curious to see if anyone has used…"

Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
No. I just heard about this opportunity through the Broomfield Enterprise.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
It would be a great learning opportunity for my Girl Scout troops. They would donate the majority of the food raised to the local food bank.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
I was raised on a 250 acre farm in Iowa. We were nearly totally self sufficient.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement?
Word of mouth, publicity from GS- I have a degree in Marketing so maybe that could help.

I'll look forward to learning from you about keeping chickens!

Hi Christi,
Delighted you enjoyed Don's article in the Enterprise. That's good news. You can also join Transition Westminster / Arvada / Broomfield, which you can find in the "Groups" menu item above. We're looking for more avenues to farm, reach out to youth, and market ourselves, so your experience sounds terrific! (would love to hear more about what your kids think about world events and the part they want to play) You'll see lots of local events, including a showing of "Escape from Suburbia" tonight at the Grange in old Broomfield. Hope to see you 'round!
