Current Status: Active
Year Founded: 2019
Summary of Activities: Transition Rochester is still forming, but we are an outgrowth of the Backyard Bounty Urban Homesteading Meetup group, along with connections to numerous other environmental groups and events in Rochester. Rochester is a progressive city and the home of Mayo Clinic, thus healthcare is very prevalent. The city is experiencing rapid growth, but is well positioned to embrace sustainability and resilience. Transition Towns is the right organization to contribute to Rochester's future.
Summary of Accomplishments: Film screenings are growing our local outreach efforts with attendance doubling since the winter. We have several energy and food projects currently underway, each led by various leaders of our group.
