Local Resilience: A Transition Town Weekend
Transition is what we've been through this fall, post Sandy. Realizing the importance of community . . . a deep pantry . . . an alternate source of heat in your house. This is called local resilience.

The Transition Movement is the worldwide expert in building local resilience in the face of such challenges as peak oil, climate change and the economic crisis--and not just preparing for emergencies but as a preferable way of living.

Come to Local Resilience: a Transition Town Weekend and move toward a life that is more fulfilling, more socially connected and more equitable than the one we have today. This weekend is sponsored by Roots & Wings, the sustainable initiative of South Church, in partnership with Transition Hastings and Transition Westchester.

WHEN (we ask you to commit to the full weekend)
- Friday, February 1, 6 - 9 PM, including dinner from a local restaurant
- Saturday, February 2, 8:30 AM - 5 PM, including lunch from a local restaurant
- Sunday, February 3, 1 - 6 PM, with a closing dinner provided by Transition Hastings
