Transition US is planning the mega ‘350 home and garden challenge’ project, which, if you are in the US, we keenly recommend you take part in.
It sounds great:
On a single weekend, May 14th & 15th, thousands of landscapes and homes will be transformed, retrofitted and revitalized as part of the 350 Home & Garden Challenge. Thousands of us will take to the streets, the garden, schoolyard, home, apartment and city hall to take actions big and small. We will grow food, conserve water, save energy and build community. Amidst a dizzying array of crises and mounting despair, together we will bring the hope of transition and show what we are capable of with our heads, hearts and hands aligned in action. And we need EVERY one of you, your family, friends, neighbors and even strangers on the street. It’s time for action, rooted in a shared vision and voice…
Our goal is to inspire 350 actions to grow food, conserve water, and save energy. Imagine retrofitting our homes, apartments, offices, and neighborhoods with gardens, greywater and energy efficiency! From small to large, each action counts….
If you’re interested, and we hope you are, there are two things to do:
- Register yourself as a Community Organiser
- Register your projects on the Transition US projects directory
- Tell your project story and share banners on your site with the media kit
