Transitioning Under Palm Trees and Joshua Trees (excerpt)

By Maggie Fleming, Transition US

This spring, I had the pleasure of attending two weddings in Los Angeles. In between rehearsal dinners, teary toasts, and bouquet tosses, I scheduled meetings with several Southern California Transition groups (Environmental Change Makers, Transition Culver City, Transition Mar Vista/Venice, Transition Aliso Viejo, and Transition Laguna Beach). At these meetings, I was specifically looking to learn how the various groups have been building community resilience and to find out how Transition US can be of more support to these groups. The biggest takeaway from these meetings was the tremendous amount of work that these individuals and groups are doing. I returned to Transition US’ Sebastopol office feeling deeply inspired and energized to raise funds and build capacity to help support these groups and other groups across the country.
