Coming Up

So many good things are happening around Fidalgo — walks, talks, educational opportunities and rewarding experiences!

Below are some highlights of events coming up that we believe may be of interest to Transition folks.

TF&F Annual ‘Gathering’:

Tuesday, January 26, 7:00 pm,
via Zoom, but lively and engaging!

We will confirm new officers of the board,
see our Annual Report,
share interactively with one another for a while,
and also hear from author Jane Billinghurst about forests:

What’s Going on in the Forest?

TF&F member Jane Billinghurst — Peter Wohlleben’s English translator — will tell you about some of the unexpected delights to look out for on your next hike and explain a few of the latest scientific discoveries concerning the secret life of trees.

Jane is a long-time resident of Anacortes. When she is not losing herself in the community forest lands (sometimes literally; there are A LOT of trails out there), she writes, edits, and translates books—mostly about animals and nature.

Org Transition Fidalgo & Friends is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Food Stand Season coming to a close:
Our “Share the Bounty” food stands are taking a winter rest, and will back up again this spring or summer. Thank you to all who helped build, paint, stock, and support this effort for our community. It made a difference in the lives of many.

Forest Monitoring:
Our studies in the ACFL are wrapping up soon also. Fidalgo Forest Stewards have been busy throughout the year as we look at the timing of trees and shrubs in their leafing out, flowering, fruiting, and now losing of leaves. Cedar trees continue to be monitored for their health, soil moisture measured accurately, and weather details are now being tracked at a permanent weather station purchased by supporters through generous donations.


Fix-It Days — Ways!

By Larry Collinge,
TF&F Member

The Fix-it Booth is alive and well in Old Town. We
(the Fix-it Techs) missed this summer season at the
Farmer’s Market because of Covid concerns.
Maggie and I are not going to Mexico this winter,
so we’ve decided to re-boot the Fix-it Booth in my
garage, located at 1914 11th St.

My phone number is 360.202.5618.

Give me a call if you have a small appliance, lamp,
furniture or what have you that needs some TLC,
and I’ll give it my best, or tell you that it may not be
worth the time and energy to repair it. I’m doing
this free of charge, with the exception of any new
parts (switches, sockets or wire terminals) that may
be necessary to complete a repair.

I also do small welding jobs, as long as it isn’t aluminum. All I ask is
for a donation to Transition Fidalgo & Friends.
If and when you visit my shop, please wear a mask,
and I’ll do the same. Thanks.
