What area of the city do you live in (neighbourhood or nearest intersection)?
What aspects of Transition are you most passionate about?
Food, Energy, Environment, Quality of life, Local Economy, Permaculture, Art
What are your skills that could help with Transition?
heirloom seed keeping, small-scale vegetable and permaculture gardening, a whole lot of passion!
If you could design your own role in Transition Toronto, what would it involve?
I would love to volunteer on any farm or garden than needed it, connect with other young people who have in interest in transition but feel overwhelmed by such a huge change. If we all help each other get started, I think we'd see that planting our own food is much easier and more more rewarding than sifting through nutrition information on the back of packaged foods. Give yourself the power to choose what you eat.
How many hours per month would you realistically spend on Transition Toronto?
for the summer, I could do as much as 80 hours a month, and after than I'm not sure.

It will certainly help you connect to young people.
Also, we're working on a community garden conversion that we're going to raise funds for in the next little while. If you're interested in that, let me know and I can put you in touch with the project leads on that.
Check out the groups we've got going here: http://transitiontoronto.ning.com/groups and join the ones you think you'd like to work on. Some of the neighbourhood groups have ongoing projects you could work on.
