How did you find this particular group? (word of mouth? internet? etc.)


What interests you about this particular group?

the concept of resilience and working to decrease the extreme economic inequality of these times. Hearing what Chuck Collins is thinking and doing now. I particularly want to pay attention to how we can create the option for folks to age how and where they chose in economically sustainable ways. Aging is not an "us" vs "them" proposition in either resources or actual chronological age. I'd like to see more bridges created than divides manufactured.

Are you living/gardening/growing predominantly in an urban, suburban or rural setting?

small town.


Work full-time while living in a small town. Am focused on continuing to create options so people can age how & where they chose. Am concerned about the rhetoric that pits generations against each other rather than building interdependence.
