Are we a Transition family?

We've been reading about the Transition Town movement, concerning towns seeking to redesign themselves to better survive peak oil. We then found this story about what seems to be a "transition family."
Concerned about climate change and the rising price of oil, the couple, from Alvaston, are going back to the good life and preparing to transform their garden into a new-age allotment.

They hope to soon be feeding off home-grown vegetables, fruit and seeds and are working towards a self-sufficient lifestyle...
That certainly sounds like us. That family contains both adults and children, as do we. The Masons are working with a local community interested in post-oil shock life, as are we.

It's heartening to find more people engaged in this kind of practice.
