How might your current work contribute to the sustainability movement?
I'm currently on the steering committee of Transition San Lorenzo Valley, in Santa Cruz County. I'm a writer/journalist by trade and have been writing a monthly sustainability column in our local paper; I'm also working on a time bank and other "cash-less" community exchange endeavors.
In what ways do you personally identify with the Sustainability & Transition movement? Why are you interested?
First heard about peak oil in 2005 after attending a talk by Richard Heinherg in Santa Cruz and have been looking for ways to make adjustments, learn new skills and connect with the local community ever since.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
-gardening & raising chickens (still somewhat new to these)
What aspects of the sustainability movement most interests you?
I'm mostly interested in time banks, skill-sharing, tool-sharing, local currencies and other initiatives related to alternative economies. On a personal level, I'm also trying to learn more about gardening, rainwater harvesting and other means of self-sufficiency.
