What is Transition Aromas?
Transition Aromas is a local group working to increase our Community's resilience and sustainability. The Transition movement is a global network of hundreds of communities across the globe taking creative action to build community resilience as we face climate change, resource depletion and economic instability. The Transition model offers a positive way to respond to these negative trends and to improve quality of life.
Transition Aromas has been in existence since February 2012. A small group of dedicated volunteers is working to increase our community's resilience and sustainability by hosting skill-sharing workshops, showing films, gathering gardeners together to share information, hosting community discussions, and putting on an Aromas Community Harvest Fair. As more people contribute time and energy, Transition Aromas will initiate and support more projects/efforts that will help our community lower our carbon footprint, decrease our dependence on fossil fuel, strengthen our local food system, and increase community cooperation.
With an express goal of unleashing our community's collective genius, Transition Aromas welcomes anyone with ideas, energy, and good will. Please join us in creating a liveable future in Aromas.

Invitation to Help Plan the 2014 Harvest Fair - Meeting: 4/10/2014
Transition Aromas invites all members of the community to join in planning the 2014 Harvest Fair.
This year, in addition to the local foods and food processing that the 2013 Harvest Fair showcased,
we would like to expand our focus on sustainability. We envision booths and hands-on activities
related to food, water, energy, emergency preparedness, and transportation. You don't need to be an
expert in any of these areas, although it would be great if you are! We need people interested in
planning, creating booths, making signs, translating, publicizing, and everything else needed to plan
an event of this type.
If you enjoyed last year's Harvest Fair, and would like to get involved in organizing this year's, please
join us for the first planning session at 7PM on Thursday, April 10 at the Aromas Water District Office in Aromas.
If you are interested, but cannot attend, please contact us at email@example.com or call
Wendy at 726-3406.
5th Quarterly Gathering of Gardeners
It’s that time again! It’s time to come out of our solitary gardens and gather together to share gardening know-how and information, on
Wednesday, April 30th, 2014, at 7pm at the Aromas Grange
Numerous gardeners have been complaining recently about how birds are being particularly pestilential this year. Might it have to do with the drought? We don’t have the answer to that, but we do have a few people who are ready to respond to the bird problems with some tried-and-true methods and materials to talk about. There’s also a pretty interesting idea to try out which requires two nesting tin cans and some tin snips. Bring ‘em if you have ‘em, and give it a try. And bring your own ideas and methods to share.
Bring your general (or specific) gardening questions, too, and we’ll collectively see if we have solutions for you.
We’ll also talk about what’s going on in the garden at this time of year. What tasks should we be doing now?
Bring your starts, seeds, handouts, books, etc., for the Share Table.
And don’t forget your nesting tin cans and tin snips!
