Profile Information

What parts of our mission are you interested in (for example, growing food/food security, appropriate energy technologies, transportation, community building, etc.)?
I am developing a network called the Livelihood Network that incorporates all of these in a whole system approach. The Livelihood Network is a participatory network of individuals, families, groups, organizations, businesses, and more growing relationships of mutual exchange to build community, economy, and society based on livelihood as its fundamental unit of measure. Unlike 'job,' livelihood is an inclusive term that implies the connection between family and community life, community provisioning, ecological knowledge, sustenance, and care for others, their place, and their earth.
How do you see yourself being involved with Sustainable NE Seattle? What skills, talents and passions are you willing to share?
In addition to the Livelihood Networked described above, I have studied permaculture and natural building on various homesteads, ecovillages, and communities. My demonstration and market garden will be located in Wallingford this year. I am also a writer and editor whose work has appeared in Crosscut and YES! Magazine and can work as a tutor or editor for fee, barter, or free if the situation is right.

Welcome Robert,

the Livelihood Network sounds a lot like the Transition movement that we're a part of..

- Permaculture in practice.  I'm looking forward to hearing more about it.

Maybe we'll see you at one of our meetings.
