Hello everyone,
Do you garden, or are you interested in gardening?
This Monday at 6:30pm, we’ll be talking about building and sustaining community gardens in Port Angeles. Join us at the PA Library to hear about what’s going on, and the new community garden project!
When: Tomorrow, June 17th, at 6:30pm
Where: PA Public Library
Hope to see you there!

Freshening up coming soon.

Hi all, the blog has been sadly neglected for awhile. Expect a freshening up in the next few days! You can still post comments and we’ll reply as quickly as we can.

Mark your calendars!

Hello all,
Please mark your calendars for 15 April for >> 7:00 pm << at the PA Library. We changed the time due to a conflict with an earlier event.
The plan is to have a conversation about a possible community garden location on the West side of Port Angeles. We’d also like to give you all a test-run of a presentation we’ve been working on. 
After this, we’d like to break up into two groups, one for people interested in the garden, and the other to critique and improve the presentation. Then we’ll come back together for a sharing and review of what the two groups discussed.
–In brief–
When: 15 April, 7:00 pm
Where: PA Library
Hope to see you there!

Next event!

Hello all,

The Library’s Carver Room is in big demand! We had to schedule a meeting on very short notice.

Please mark your calendars for 1 April (no, really!), 6:30 pm at the Library. We’ve got some ideas to present, and then it’s onto Collapse, a movie which touches upon many of the topics we talked about at the transportation meeting. Thereafter we’ll have a focused discussion/response about the movie.

In brief:

When: 1 April, 6:30pm
Where: The PA Library
What: The movie Collapse, followed by group conversation.

Next Event!

Hi all,

Please mark your calendars for tomorrow, Monday, 11 March! The time is 6:30pm, and the place is the PA Library. 

We’re going to facilitate a conversation about post-oil transportation, centred around one question in particular. The issue of transportation is critical for Port Angeles.

No movie this time, just discussion! Please feel free to bring snacks if you are so moved.

In brief:
When: 11 March, 6:30 pm
Where: PA Library
What: Group discussion about post-oil transportation

See you there,
Kaitlan, Neil, Hank, Diana, Andrew, and Nelson

TPA News

Hello all,

Great news! Transition Port Angeles is the 131st officially recognized Transition Initiative in the United States. This is a sign that Transition US — the national hub tasked with helping US Initiatives — considers Transition PA a viable and healthy movement.

Getting Transition PA officially recognized is one major goal of the Initiating Group, before it dissolves. We on the IG see this as great progress, and we look forward to the rest of the year. Transition PA has come a long way since the first meeting in December of 2011, but there’s still much more to be done.

Although we don’t a date set yet, we fully intend to celebrate Transition PA’s official status in a February public event. Details soon to follow.

In the mean time, please stop by the Farmer’s Market and say hello!

In motion…

Hello all,

We’ve been quiet for awhile, but we haven’t gone anywhere. Expect to see a February event announced soon.

In the meanwhile, we’re focusing on the Transition PA table at the Farmer’s Market. It’s our intention to make that home base for all things Transition! Swing by and say hello when you’re at the Market. We’ve got copies of the four Transition books at the table for everyone to read and enjoy, with more fun stuff planned in the near future.

All the best for 2013,

Hank, Kaitlan, Neil, Andrew, Diana, and Nelson
