“Our central survival task for the decades ahead, as individuals and as a species, must be to make a transition away from the use of fossil fuels – and to do this as peacefully, equitably, and intelligently as possible”.Class sessions begin on Tuesday Oct. 13th at 7 PM.

TM Handbooks will be sold on a sliding scale…See More
I am still recovering so probably should not come this evening. I want to do the online training that happens tomorrow at noon. I learned about it on facebook. But to which site do I go to participate? A woman in Racine contacted me today…"
Whether you are new to or familiar with the Transition Initiative, we invite you to join in our monthly Hub meetings to learn, share, envision and participate in the projects that will be "visible manifestations" of our empowered response to climate change and peak oil. Networking from 6:30-7; meeting will begin promptly at 7pm.
Why are you interested in the Transition movement?
I meet with a group of people every Tuesday. We seem to be doing many of the the same things that Transition Milwaukee is doing. We have a community garden plot, many bicyclers, people who are self-educating about many aspects of surviving the oil dissent and I have been to a Transition Town Training and want to share about it with these folks who are mostly between the ages of 16 and 22.
How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I try to attend events held by Transition Milwaukee to get ideas for our group in West Bend. I plan to get further training at the upcoming Transition Town online training. I attended the Delafield 2 Day Training course. I own a 65 acre farm where I have been doing informal permaculture for years.
What skills, talents, and resources do you bring to the Transition movement?
I know a fair amount about native species fauna. I can write fairly well and I write fiction. I am the Co-ordinator for the Great Lakes Earth Institute. I know about horses although I have never farmed with them. I have a few connections and I am an pretty good idea person.
Which topics within Transition most interest you, and what are you most interested in getting out of your involvement in the Transition Movement?
Permaculture is at the top of my interest list.
