How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Reading, writing, talking to people I know.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I have been following issues of peak oil and sustainability for many years. I worked in the chemical lawncare/landscape business, and the oil and gas exploration business (GIS analyst)--and left both work backgrounds even though it was the best income for me, to move to something less earth killing, so I now work at a winery, a great way to preserve grapes! I am now ready to make the Transition to a post carbon, post collapse world. I am moving from Napa to Denver in a few weeks to be closer to my children and my grandson to be close to them, as I believe collapse is coming sooner than I expected...
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
Some knowledge of growing things (former landscaper), now work at a Napa winery. Masters in Geography. Basic carpentry, electrical. Knowledge of many woodworking tools, as well as farming implements.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement?
Writing, speaking, presentation of ideas (sales background).
