Larimer Green Team Meetings; 6pm (2nd + 4th Thursdays); Kingsley Association

What this is: Larimer Green Team is the "promoting sustainability by growing food in all sorts of places and revitalizing everything possible" arm of the initiatives in Larimer. The community gardens and raised beds are theirs, and they have meetings to show off new projects and discuss issues in their area. Highlights of previous meetings:

  • Presentation by Barton Kirk of SEEDS on sewage systems in Pittsburgh and possibilities of transitioning to graywater systems and green infrastructure
  • Closer-to-final plans & budgets for a rain garden (with perennials in bloom all-year-round) in vacant lots in Larimer

Why you should come: This is under-served, urban, and blighted communities' residents rising up and saying that they don't want their futures left to the whims of economic tribulations, energy scarcity, and environmental degradation--so they're planning and drawing up blueprints, as friends and neighbors, to make their neighborhood more secure & nicer to look at, work & invest in, and live in. With the support (but not control) of local nonprofits and businesses, they've built their own model (with some similarities to the Transition Model) to transition their community to relocalized wealth and sustainability, plus resiliency to a globalized economy with globalized problems.
