We are a group of local folk looking to make Shepherdstown as sustainable as possible. We are following the Transition model. We are not looking to reinvent the wheel nor seeking to supplant existing efforts, but rather to be part of the process in any way that we can.
Currently a small group has formed an “Initiating Group.*” Each of us has either been to Transition Training or read The Transition Handbook by Rob Hopkins. We are working on education projects, such as our upcoming Transition Talks and this BLOG. We are looking for new participants, ideas/suggestions as we proceed along the path of Transition.
*An Initiating Group That Designs Its Demise: the initiating group exists to navigate the first few steps of the process, but always with an intention of dissolving itself as the project evolves.
