Help create a Village

A TF&F member, Jim Taylor, is interested in starting a “village” – a community of people who wish to stay in their own homes for life – in Anacortes. Please check out “Village to Village Network” at http://www.vtvnetwork.org/. If you’re interested in participating, email us (info@transitionfidalgo.org) and we’ll get you in contact with Jim.
