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.
