Guest post by Mary Leigh (Marylee) Burke:
I’m 61, retired, and have been car free here in Corvallis for just over 6 months now. I helped lead a discussion group on car free and car lite lifestyles at the recent Transformation Without Apocalypse conference, and we’re doing another one at the library next May.
I think it would be awesome to have a group of like-minded people who get together to talk about this wonderful lifestyle, share ideas and solutions, and support each other in our choices for sustainability in general. My home is available for meetings and my energy is available for organizing it – I just need to see if there’s interest. I’m new to the area, though, so I don’t know a lot of people and live in a family neighborhood where everybody has cars.
So if you’re interested, comment on this post and I’ll say more in the next one.
