Organization Mission

Working to promote local community resiliency, including a more locally-oriented food supply.

Organization Description

TransitionKW is part of a larger worldwide Transition Town movement that was started out of concerns about peak oil and climate change. It was largely started by a permaculturalist by the name of Rob Hopkins who saw localizing the food supply as an important component of reducing our reliance on fossil fuels.

  • Education/teaching - Seek to mobilize people to work towards locallizing food production.
