View The MAP


During the month of May, thousands of people across the US took action to enhance local food systems, conserve energy and water, and build community resilience.


This May, we collectively registered 6,942 actions in communities across the country! Folks picked up their shovels and tools, helped construct rainwater harvesting systems, and installed solar panels. Abandoned lots were converted into green oases and school children pulled weeds and planted tomato starts.

In 2010 a handful of community leaders in Sonoma County, CA demonstrated their collective genius.  Inspired by the Grow Food Party Crew 100 Garden Challenge, the Gardens of Gratitude 100 Garden Challenge and the action-based programs of, the Sonoma County Daily Acts team garnered the support and cooperation of cities, local businesses, and governmental agencies as well as arranged for workshops, volunteer-led community projects, material donations, and numerous discounts.  In the end they far exceeded their goal with 628 registered actions! Thank you all for your inspiration and help in Transition US taking this challenge national.  Only together can we bring about the awareness and change we want to see in the world.
