The Beautiful Sammamish Valley

 

 

Transition Free Press ~ Cascadia/US

Transition Free Press is a tabloid newspaper printed in the UK. It is a Transition enterprise worker co-operative reporting on stories that matter--stories that inform, connect and strengthen us. The aim is to help with the shift to a low-carbon, resilient and equitable future. Transition is a network of local community responses. www.transitionfreepress.org

Transition Free Press ~ Cascadia/US supports this bold venture. Here on Salish Sea, in the Pacific Northwest, our stories are told through local Sustainable Heroes and Heroines.

Meet  Dana Lyons ~ July Sustainable Hero

Dana Lyons was a sustainable hero long before “sustainable” became a global word and movement.

In 1989 Dana’s first album, “Our State is a Dumpsite” addressed the issue of nuclear waste being shipped to Washington State. Now in 2014, Dana’s ninth album, “The Great Salish Sea,” includes songs about salmon coming home since the beginning of time, orca whales being endangered by big ships preventing them from hearing one another, controversial coal trains, and water’s critical role in meeting the needs of many different people.

Alongside serious themes and issues are songs that are witty and humorous such as “Cows with Guns,” “RV” and “Ride the Lawn.” Two current videos, “Cane Toad Muster” and “Label GMO Disco” are examples of Dana’s skill at integrating political issues and comedy.

In an article by Richard Jehn in the Whatcom Watch Online, Profiles of Pacific Northwest Activists Dana states: “So now when I choose my battles, I look for issues that unify people. In the ‘80s, there were six of us chained to a bulldozer, and everyone was mad at us as we were trying to save some trees. We were just this tiny group, we were always the minority. But now, the onslaught is so great that it unifies. Like my recent coal train tour…”

Trilliums ! at Tadpole Haven

April 12, 2014 from 10am to 4pm
News flash!  I’ve got my paws on some beautiful native Western Trilliums (Trillium ovatum)!  Right now is prime Trillium time in the forests of Western Washington.  They are bright pure white, but will gradually turn pink and may darken all the way to purple before the flower withers.  It ages very gracefully.  I should take notes. This wild lily had an aura of magic for me as a child (still does).  My mother would fiercely tell me never to pick them, impressing on me: “It won’t bloom again for…See More

Kit Robinson responds to our Spring Makeover::

 Great Idea! I like the inclusion of the bio-regional reference for sure. Would having "guest" blogs possibly fit the format? Also, perhaps this might be a potential venue to finally leverage a "Green Map" feature(?).

In any case, thanks for this initiative, and all that you folks do; for the Sammamish Valley watershed, and mother earth!

Transition Network ~ More Good Stuff

Started by Trish Knox Jul 29, 2013.

"While peak oil and climate change are undeniably profoundly challenging, also inherent within them is the potential for an economic, cultural and social renaissance the likes of which we have never seen. We will see a flourishing of local businesses, local skills and solutions, and a flowering of ingenuity and creativity. It is a Transition in which we will inevitably grow, and in which our evolution is a precondition for progress. Emerging at the other end, we will not be the same as we were; we will have become more humble, more connected to the natural world, fitter, leaner, more skilled and, ultimately, wiser." -- Rob Hopkins, The Transition Handbook
