Fall 2013 New England Transition Gathering
Saturday, October 5, 2013 from 9:30 AM to 4:00 PM (EDT)
You are invited to the Fall 2013 Transition Gathering in Portland Maine! This is a great opportunity to meet fellow Transitioners from other initiatives and resource groups, to share skills and stories together about what works and to learn what a New England Transition Network might have to offer our local efforts.
We will gather at 9:00 and begin at 9:15. There will be multiple resource sharing opportunities, plenty of space for real dialogue, fun and great locavore food prepared by a local, cooperatively-owned catering company. We will wrap up at 4pm. This will be a facilitated event.
Rob Hopkins will also be speaking in town the night before the gathering, Oct 4th at 6pm. Both events are open to the public.
Please note: you need a homestay ticket to be on the list to receive contacts for community-sourced lodging/couch surfing/tenting options.
Any donations collect at the event in excess of the costs will be carried forward for future network gatherings.
