Transition US is committed to enabling action-oriented programs at the national level.  The Home and Garden Challenge is just such an opportunity. Inspired by the the amazing work done in Sonoma County, CA and organizatins such as the Victory Garden Foundation this year we are extending the challenge to span an entire month - May 12th thru June 12th

Organizing a Home & Garden Challenge in your town (or city, village, county, parish, island) not only helps raise awareness and continue to build local resiliency, it offers an opportunity for your citizens to be a part of something much larger. This is the perfect opportunity for communities across the country to come together and show their solidarity.

Honoring The Roots of the 350 Challenge

In 2010 a handful of community leaders in Sonoma County, CA demonstrated their collective genius.  Inspired by the Grow Food Party Crew 100 Garden Challenge, the Gardens of Gratitude 100 Garden Challenge and the action-based programs of 350.org, the Sonoma County team garnered the support and cooperation of cities, local businesses, and governmental agencies as well as arranged for workshops, volunteer-led community projects, material donations, and numerous discounts.  In the end they far exceeded their goal with 628 registered actions!  In 2010, the Sonoma County efforts inspired several organizations including Transition Ann Arbor and the Victory Garden Foundation to launch similar initiatives. Thank you all for your inspiration and help in Transition US taking this challenge national in starting in 2011.  Only together can we bring about the awareness and change we want to see in the world.

 

Logo Design

We would be remiss if we didn't also honor Laurie Gibbs of Ranch 7 Creative who designed the Home & Garden Challenge logo that continues to live on from last year.  Thank you Laurie!
