On the local scene, does Escondido have a Transition-supporting website, or blog, or listserv, or Facebook, or Meetup? If so, it would be spot on for all our members if you would consider including a link to Escondido in our registry of organizations, localities, companies, products, services, Twitterers, Facebooks, Meetups, etc. supporting Transition and Sustainability. Here's the page to create the link -- http://transitioninaction.com/groups/group/new. I'll be glad to help launch and build your link, if you are interested.
You can see all our 356+ groups at http://transitioninaction.com/groups. Use Search on this page to find a specific group. Join as many as you like.
