Good morning! We are hoping that you will be able to come to this upcoming meeting and that you would be willing to share this note/flyer with many of your contacts! Apologies if you have received this twice* *as we try to get the word out. Thanks for your support and hope to see you there! Mary Jo Cristofaro * * *Help us spread the word!* *The Transition movement* is a grassroots network of communities that are working to build resilience in response to peak oil, climate change, and economic instability. www.transitionus.org Northfield became a Transition Town in November of 2009. Our mission: In the spirit of collaboration we will use Transition tools and our community’s diverse wisdom to create an energy descent plan and move us from our current non-renewable ways of meeting our basic needs to a sustainable, localized culture. Please join us. To find out more about Transition Northfield visit: www.transitionnorthfield.org Transition Northfield is hosting a series of community meetings to build a Community Resilience Transition Plan with Northfield. We would love your organization to have a voice at these meetings. You can help spread the word with the enclosed flier. Our February 4th meeting is discussing “The Economy.” We would like to reach as many people in Northfield as we can, to create a community dialogue where everyone feels welcomed and their voice is heard. Here is a list of our upcoming community meetings. *Feb 4th The Economy* *Feb 23rd- A Community Potluck with our Elders at Millstream Commons * * 815 Forest Ave. Northfield- 5:30-8pm* *March 3- Northfield Youth* *April 7- Water* *Late April Earth Day Event TBA.* Join us *Saturday February 4th for a discussion on the economy from 9-11am *at the UCC church located at 3rd and Union in Northfield. We will explore what other transition communities are doing to create their own local economies, and brainstorm what we can do in Northfield to expand on how we can meet our needs locally. We will talk about how our local economy relates to reduce, repair, recycle and re-imagine as well as local infrastructure, local investments and equal opportunities for all to receive and contribute goods/services for each other as a community. Attendees will have opportunities to share their thoughts and ideas on how we can take back our economy and meet our needs locally on both a personal and community scale. We will take stock in the great work that has already been done by all those who shop at local merchants and support our local economy and will explore new ways of thinking that can benefit *all* of us. To do this we will break into smaller groups, brainstorm and create workable action steps that businesses, future business , consumers and the community can put into action. We want to coordinate efforts and resources to ensure that Northfield continues to be a vibrant, healthy and welcoming community. Please join us!
