How might your current work contribute to the sustainability movement?
I am semi retired from a professional life as a chef and culinary arts instructor. I have taught classes on healthy cooking and as a chef, attempted to purchase local, organic, and sustainable ingredients as much as possible.
In what ways do you personally identify with the Sustainability & Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I try to buy locally; cut back on unnecessary driving; walk to complete errands; grow my own vegetables; recycle; conserve water. I am interested in joining with others in the area to push these ideas and promote a more eco friendly way of living.
