Transition Venice Pages


There are 472 National Official Transition Initiatives in 44 countries around the globe. Currently there are 151 in the United States, five in Florida

The Transition Movement is comprised of vibrant, grassroots community initiatives that seek to build community resilience in the face of such challenges as peak oil, climate change, and the economic crisis. Transition Initiatives differentiate themselves from other sustainability and environmental groups by seeking to mitigate these converging global crises by engaging their communities in homegrown, citizen-led education, action, and multi-stakeholder planning to increase local self-reliance and resilience.

Transition Venice has accomplished much toward these goals since 2012 with presentations, movies, field trips, & workshops:
• 120th Official Transition Initiative in the US and the 3rd in Florida
• 2014 Keep Sarasota County Beautiful Award ~ community gardens
• Electric Bike & Cars talk & demo
• Seed, seedlings, & plant shares
• Mango Chutney Re-skilling Class
• Solar Water Heater Demonstration
• Chicken, vermiculture, composting lectures
• Net-Zero Homes
• Non-GMO discussion
• Intro to Canning Class
• Commonwealth Time Bank Presentation
• Solar Power presentation
• Edible Landscape presentation
• Edible Landscape & Sustainable Home Tour
• Solar Power and How to Create Zero Energy
• Established Growing Together Community Garden
• Eat The Weeds Presentation
• Venice Food Day Celebration
• Butterfly & Beneficial Insect Gardens
• Herbs for Southwest Florida
• Movies: Power of Community, Growing Cities, Paving the Way, etc

If we wait for the governments, it’ll be too little, too late. If we act as individuals, it’ll be too little. If we act as communities, it might just be enough, just in time. If you are interested in helping Transition Venice build resilience through community, please contact us and be the change you wish to see in the world! ~
