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....
For all who are inspired by the 'Ringing Cedars of Russia' series - please share your thoughts on creating kin's domains, spaces of love, re-wilding, communing with nature. Would be great to hear from those who've been to Sharashkin's workshop!

Thanks for the welcome and the info. I feel like I'm in Facebook For Transitioners!
I have a hard time being "friends" with someone I don't actually "know," but maybe I'll get over that... Meantime, I am so…"
How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
Attending meetings in our town. Our first was in mid-Feb. 2009.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I identify with it being a grass-roots movement that is on a local scale. I think we need to develop community skills, resources, and self-governing abilities, and assume the federal and state governments will not be taking care of us in the long emergency ahead.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I can spread the word to other towns via friends and family, and through business networks.
