We inform the public about Transition Towns, a global movement which supports practical approaches for people to find resources and achieve the needed skills to build sustainable, strong and resilient communities in the face of challenges including fossil fuel use, climate change and the ongoing economic crisis. We seek to build relationships between people who wish to work together or independently to achieve these goals, and promote interaction between Transition Town organizations. Generally, our activities take place in central New Jersey, but we welcome all curious and experienced to check us out!
Examples of our activities include:
• Hands-on activities focusing on learning skills for becoming more physically self sufficient including gardening, the making and/or repairing of things by oneself, finding new uses for things instead of throwing them away in the trash.
• Public presentations on the social, economic and environmental issues of today.
• Connecting neighbors and resources to create more financial self-sufficiency and improve local economies including activities involving the Gift economy. Barter and Community Currencies
• This Transition Town presence on Meetup is sponsored by Treasure Circle (http://TreasureCircle.com)®, a social benefit company located in Red Bank, NJ
