The event will be a "salon format" which means a warm and comfortable gathering where we can explore ideas in great depth. Bring your questions about Transition topics, leadership issues, community-building issues, or Permaculture concepts.
This is a chance to "cross pollinate" Transition ideas with another geographic area, to hear from thinkers who have a different regional viewpoint about The Great Turning, and to gain from the experience of long-time Permaculture veterans. We hope you can join us for this world-class conversation.
Light refreshments will be served.

Becky homeschooled her children and participated in learning co-ops. She was trained in a self-awareness and discovery program called Core Creatives and became a facilitator. In 2002, she and her husband, along with several friends, created a not-for-profit organization called Center for Sustainable Community (CSC) with the vision of creating transformation through education in all aspects of sustainability.
