Learn from Trathen Heckman how the Community Resilience Challenge, launched in Northern California in 2010, is sweeping the nation -- and how you can bring the Challenge to your community and start building a more resilient world.

Trathen Heckman is the co-founder of Daily Acts Organization, board president of Transition U.S. and a front yard farmer. Trathen works with engaged citizens, leaders and networks to provide innovative community-based solutions, which harness the power of nature and inspired action to build leadership and local self-reliance. This ranges from installing food forests from front yards to City Hall landscapes to helping mobilize thousands of sustainability actions as part of the Community Resilience Challenge, a Daily Acts program that has been replicated regionally and nationally. Trathen is a founding member of the Sonoma County Food System Alliance and worked actively with the Sonoma County Greywater Working Group which participated in the 2009 California state Greywater law update. He lives in the Petaluma River Watershed where he grows food, medicine and wonder while working to compost apathy and lack.
