We had an excellent Training for Transition class in November!  Among the highlights were tours of Ray Sher’s urban market garden and Bob Randall and Nancy Edward’s garden and home efficiency upgrades, Zaida Amaral’s lunchtime seminar at Rice University, the opening potluck, and two days of learning, growth, and community at Sheldon Lake State Park.

Please let us know if you have an interest in future Transition training events.  We have nothing scheduled at this time, but if there is enough interest we may investigate another training session.


Date: November 21, 2009 – November 22, 2009

Curriculum: This training will follow the transition model in paying attention to both the outer work and the inner work necessary for a successful transition process. This will be a participatory process, with participants invited to share their own experience and learn from the many different transition initiatives represented at each course.  Optional free local garden tours, community organizing training, and potluck will be offered on Friday, November 20.
