  1. A new Transition Town group is starting in Ukiah. We will have our second meeting on Jan 11. We want people who think they can help with our planning team and meet at least a couple of times a month to come to our next meeting. Here is info about our group and the next meeting.

    Ukiah Transition Movement Meeting

    The time has come for those of us in the Ukiah area to join together and begin the work of transitioning to a future beyond fossil fuels. This is a grassroots movement that seeks to build community resilience in the face of such challenges as peak oil, climate change and the economic crisis. It empowers people in our community to work together to strengthen it against the effects of these challenges, resulting in a life that is more sustainable, equitable and socially connected. This meeting is for those who would like to learn more about the Transition Movement and who are interested in becoming part of the core group to help lead this effort. Meeting time, Tuesday, January 11th, 5:15 – 6:45 PM, Saturday Afternoon Clubhouse, 107 South Oak St., Ukiah. Optional potluck. Contact, Debora, 707-462-9392 or dkmcg@sbcglobal.net, if you plan to attend. Bring your vision, passion, and commitment to help create the change we know is possible.
