Who we are

Tree Bressen – “Group facilitation is my passionate calling in the world–see for resources & tools on group dynamics. I live at Walnut St. Co-op ), a 9-person household on the east side of town. After more than 2 years in the car-share group, i continue to feel inspired by our core agreements and the extent to which we live them out in practice.”

James Hiebert – James Hiebert can run farther than anyone else in the co-op. This could come in particularly handy if he happens to be carrying a batch of his rockin’ chocolate chip cookies. He is currently getting a Ph.D. in computer science at U of O–so when the machines finally do try to take over, we’ll be counting on him to lead the resistance.

Megan Hinkel – “I am constantly seeking new ways to ‘be the change I wish to see in the world’. Since two of the things I wish to see are fewer cars and more cooperation, joining the Eugene Bio Car Share seemed like a ridiculously sensible thing to do. I am a board member of the Oregon Network for Compassionate Communication, and use Nonviolent Communication nearly every day in some form. Currently, my work centers around planning a major conference for 2008 called ‘Nonviolence as a Way of Life.’”

Ephraim Payne – Ephraim hopes to combine a study of magazine journalism with additional environmental classes to prepare himself as a writer on environmental issues for regional and national publications. He believes that through this work he can help bridge a gap between environmental activists and working people that he regards as “paradoxical and ultimately, illusory, in that we all depend on the environment for life and we all need to make a living.”
