Hi Nancy & SPG folks,
I'm replying to the entire meetup group because I think this could be of interest to others, too.
Nancy's reply, below, was in response to Transition Woodinville's All Member Meeting Feb. 16
. For any folks new to Transition Towns, they are based on permaculture principles and focus on solutions for positive change. (See my original e-mail/press release for links to more Transition information, or use good ol' google.)
Nancy, YES, regional Transition gatherings would be powerful. In fact, our group has been looking for the Transition training somewhere in the area--a great excuse to collaborate and get together.
SCALLOPS is another excellent way to get together as a region since a high percentage of the groups that could be listed under SCALLOPS are Transition Towns/Mullers/Initiatives. In fact, Transition Woodinville is hosting the March 10 Spring Forward with SCALLOPS
. Follow the link for more info, plus I'm copying Trish Knox who is coordinating this through Transition Woodinville.
Hope that is helpful to folks.
Stay warm everyone!

Hi Jocelyn, I applaud your efforts and
support your agendas there in Woodinville. We are Sustainable Port
Susan Meetup group and one of our meetups is monthly Transition Port
Susan study. We meet here next Wed. I am also a new member or
Transition Whatcom and will attend their meeting Sunday, and am
networked/attend Transition Fidalgo, Transition Chuckanut gatherings
with a desire to support and glean energy and enthusiasm, discussion
ideas and support from my like-minded and newly embraced friends in
We have many common associations we realize, when we get together
with our neighbor transition efforts, and it is indeed nurturing being
together. I am personally engaged with Farming friends and neighbors
from S as far as Portland, Olympia all the way to Bellingham/Baker to
include the Cascade foothills, so my thinking is maybe we should have a
W.WA Transition Town support network for sharing resources, ideas,
speakers, support, encouragement?Whatcom has MUCH to share with us all,
and we all have much to share with one another?so much to learn, what do
you think? Nancy
