Transition US :: March 2011 e-newsletter
We’re thrilled at how this challenge is spreading across the country and internationally. With just over six weeks to go, the response to this 350 Home & Garden Challenge has been wonderful with well over 30 organizers (that would be you) stepping up.
The actions people are taking range fromplanting a fruit tree, torepairing a leaky faucet, to organizing 20 volunteers to create a school gardenor installing an array of solar panels at city hall. The important thing is that we all stand up and be counted.
Visit our website to learn more -- We are also looking to expand our growing list of media sponsors, with 350.org, 4YearsGo!, Bioneers, Post Carbon Institute, and more already on board.
This month we welcome the first official Transition Initiative in South Dakota and the 85th Transition Initiative in the US! Browse the initiatives map and learn more about becoming an Official Transition Initiative.
