MIMIC THIS! When you get invited to events 3000 miles away (or 20 of them just across town), use COPY & PASTE with the really interesting events to seed your own community's plans for similar events. Why start from scratch.... Beg, borrow and mimic! More....

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Personally, I attempt to live as sustainably, as lightly, as possible on the earth. I am constantly looking for ways to live even more sustainably and sharing the things I do with others.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
Phoenix, as of now, is not a very sustainable city, nor does there seem to be much effort here, other than a small group of isolated individuals. I am interested in seeing what other cities are doing and, while I am living here, attempting to initiate some changes here. I am also interested in possibly living someday in a Transition Town.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I am spreading the word here, among my friends and other I meet, about the Transition movement. I am attempting to demonstrate that we can live sustainably in a city. As a matter of fact, although I prefer a small town or country living, I believe, given the right city, it is possibl to live MORE sustainanably in a city.

Hi Brian, I am the group admin for the azhomegrownsolutions group on the ning site but a rather inept one. I am trying to figure out how to approve you to become a member of this group. However, I would like to invite you to join www.azhomegrownsolutions.org and connect with 800+ people interested in sustainability in Phx, Nayeema

One more thing, on the local scene, does Phoenix have a Transition-supporting website, or blog, or listserv, or Facebook, or Meetup? If so, it would be enlightening to all our members if you would consider adding a link to Phoenix in our registry of organizations, products, services, Twitterers, Facebooks, Meetups, etc. supporting Transition and Sustainability -- http://transitionus.ning.com/groups/group/new.
