Transition Tuesday at reDiscover Center

Note that in September our monthly Transition Tuesday potluck takes place on the third Tuesday of the month! Please help us make this a zero waste event by bringing your own plate, utensils, cup, and napkin.

DATE: Tuesday, September 16, 2014, 7:00 p.m.
LOCATION: reDiscover Center, 12958 W. Washington Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90066

This month’s Transition Tuesday potluck will be held at reDiscoverCenter, an arts and environmental nonprofit promoting resource conservation, creativity, and community engagement through material reuse. Meet reDiscover Director Mary Beth Trautwein and the latest group of Human Ecology students from Otis College of Artand Design. Human Ecology students work with Transition Mar Vista/Venice as a community partner, and are developing innovative, creative solutions to help TMV/V meet its aims and increase its effectiveness. Meet them and learn more about sustainability projects afoot at Otis!

Bring a potluck item like an appetizer, casserole, salad, dessert, or beverage, and get acquainted with the Otis students and each other through an icebreaker activity and free-range conversations.

Here are some Transition topics that might come up: localization (food, investing, you name it), gardening, alternative transportation or health care, the sharing economy, the bees, our fears of the future, permaculture practices, how to reduce and reuse, celebrating life! A little familiarity with the Transition ideas or The Transition Handbook by Rob Hopkins would be helpful, but it’s not necessary.

Please help us make this a zero waste event by bringing your own plate, utensils, cup, and napkin.
