  • Going for phase -1 review session
  • Monthly Potlucks started: We had our inaugural event on Monday, Jun 11, 2017, with 23 people including children attending. Despite the heat, we all had a good time, and got to talk with and meet our neighbors. We plan to have a second potluck Jul 10.
  • Finished understand, hyperlink and correct minor orthographic errors in the TT web site. 1 hour spent.
  • I'd like to enter here the fb seed that I started that combines working with Transition and learning about intimacy. I call it "Bud for Intimacy (BFI)". Like my other intimacy groups it is limited to 10 members and each of these members are required to form ANOTHER bud for intimacy according to their own specifications. I can help them to do that.
  • I have been doing many things before I joined the transition. Too many to report here I’ll just mention the main ones that I listed in my facebook page (Meir Hurwitz):

    I’d like to mention a special fb group that I founded as an attempt to make a bud. It’s called Bud for Intimacy . I would like to invite people who are working with the Transition AND are also interested in intimacy. Robert Howes started with me, but it seems that he’s too busy to participate. I am talking to another person about coming in. I hope that she will help.

    Nicole mentioned that she might start a sjupport grojup for thnose whno are in phase 3. That might also help. Of coourse I’m telling people about it and inviting them FIRST to join the Transition.

    I am also a contributor (part of phase 2 and a requirement before forming a seed).

    Anyone interested in helping out (in this groujp or in any of the others)?

  • I am working on building a second business in addition to my primary property based business. The second business will be materials based. Any materials such as old wood and other building products can be had just for the trouble of carrying them away. I have three commercial vehicles. A VW LT35 Luton van. A VW LT35 tipper and a Nissan Vanette. I have the tipper engine head off at the moment so it is not running. The Luton van is full of free wood waiting to go into my unfinished store. I have a lot to do and too little help.

  • I am involved in a local Transition Group. We are, I guess, in the mulling stage, moving into spreading information. We have a very small group of people, that is growing slowly. We went through the transition streets program, and are trying to come up with ways to spread the word. We recently acquired a new member who is a permaculture student, and he gave us an introductory presentation on permaculture. I recently found this site after we had been meeting for several months on our own. I will be suggesting that all our members join this site when we have our next meeting.
  • Spent about 1/2 hour adding tags to Transition pages
  • December 3, 2016: Spent one hour adding tags, editing Transition webpages
  • I supportd Nicole Bienfang’s request with Nationbuilder to have people automatically put on Path 0 when they sign up for The Transition
  • I’m not sure where I should send this email to.. but.. I have had this deep feeling in me the last couple years that has been recently surfacing and I can no longer hold it in. I’ve had this desire in helping, in anyway that I can, to help the transition and make a difference. This site here seems to be it. It just needs to pick up in its activity. If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know. I can do graphic design (biz cards, fliers, online banners/memes/posts. no website design experience), pro photography & can lead meditations and lectures. I also have experience in entrepreneurism.


    Furthermore, my beliefs lean most toward A Resource-Based Economy above all that I have heard, but, I am most certainly open to learning more.

    Thanks again for your time. Much peace and love to you all.

    Namaste.
  • Food Not Bombs is a community food group where we cook and serve meals and hot drinks on the streets twice a week. We’ve been going for over two years and never missed a day! Occasionally we also cook for other related local events.


    We cook the food at someone’s house, then take it to town on a bike trailer. Often we get donations of food from local businesses or members of the community. It’s a fairly low-cost venture – for £10 you can make a large pot of food and feed 20-30 people (including ourselves)! Our menu varies from soups and curries to pasta bolognaise and chili non carne (using soya mince, as we always make the main dish vegan). In addition, there’s tea, coffee and cakes (if anyone’s around to bake).
