How might your current work contribute to the sustainability movement?
Oct 2014 - I read Rob Hopkins' Transition Towns Handbook and The Power of Just Doing Stuff, I attended the Permaculture & Transition Convergence in Hopland in Oct 2013, and a work- trade event at the North American School of Natural Building in Dec. Right now I am finishing a Permaculture Design Certification course.
I am very interested in starting a project similar to the GreenHandsProject.org in Sacramento and a Place Making event like City Repair hosts, here in Fort Bragg. However, as Fort Bragg is truly struggling with establishing food security and needs support in developing a strong local food network, I have started to acquire some equipment to build an aquaponics system. Aquaponics uses 90% less water than soil-based ag and has many other benefits as well.
In what ways do you personally identify with the Sustainability & Transition movement? Why are you interested?
For a very long time I have had a sense of imbalance. I know now that it comes from being disconnected from our natural environment and my human nature. I want to learn all that I can about sustainable and responsible living and share my knowledge and skills with others.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
I am a creative and critical thinker, I have a passion for the movement and compassion for all people. I am a California native and a descendent of indigenous peoples from Mexico and North America.
What aspects of the sustainability movement most interests you?
Everything about the movement interests me.
