Transition Rogers Park Events This Week

First, many thanks to blogger Kheris, of The Living Room in Rogers Park, for featuring our local Transition Town network on her blog.The Transition Town Movement is a social movement designed to relocalize business and production, particularly food production, and enable citizens to prepare themselves and their communities for the transition to low-imput, sustainable lifestyles as fossil fuel supplies become scarce and expensive.

There are two Transition Town events this week:
