Who is Transition North Twin Cities

We are a group of people in the Northern suburbs of Minneapolis and St. Paul Minnesota who come together to share ideas and support each other as we transition to simpler lives in community with our neighbors and our ecosystem. We try to follow the Transition model and find the concepts of peak oil and climate change big motivators in driving us to change the way we live. 

We are currently in the “mulling” stage of trying to figure out if we want to become a formal Transition Initiative.  While we mull, we currently typically meet every other Monday evening, in members houses, local coffee shops, parks, and various community meeting places to get together and share ideas, watch movies, share the bounty from our gardens and our gardening knowledge, practice permaculture, talk about climate change and peak oil, share resources, learn to forage, and support each other to transition to a more conscious way of life. 

We have folks who have attended our gatherings from Coon Rapids, Blaine, Brooklyn Park, Shoreview, Andover, Anoka, Ramsey, East Bethel, Fridley, New Brighton, Stillwater, Minneapolis, and St. Paul - and folks from anywhere are always welcome!  Many of our gatherings are typically held in Coon Rapids or Blaine.  Because of the large area our members come from, we tend to focus more on connecting with the people that come to our gatherings than we do on connecting with the large number of institutions that exist in our communities.  We have been meeting since the Fall of 2013 and typically anywhere from 5 to 15 people will attend our gatherings. 

The best way to find out when and where we will meet would be to join the 40 people on our email list by sending Tom Jablonski a request to get on the list at Jablonski@usfamily.net.  We also have a Facebook page where we share information which is available here:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/203339686518932/ and we also have a blog available here:  http://transitionnorthtc.blogspot.com/ .  And for those without access to the internet, feel free to give Tom a call at 763-807-3698 and he will be glad to give you telephone updates on our next gathering.
