Next Community meeting will focus on City Repair

Location: CPMC Davies (Duboce and Castro), Room: Gazebo in between two towers (glass room)
Time:  2/28 - 7 pm - 10 pm

Transition San Francisco has picked two main focus projects for 2011.
We'll be helping with City Repair San Francisco and Kitchen Gardens
San Francisco!

1. We’ll be working with an existing local group to help launch
Portland’s much-praised City Repair project in San Francisco. See
www.cityrepair.org.

2. We’ll be helping grow the Kitchen Gardens project – which brings a
permablitz, a kind of organic gardening makeover (both indoor and
outdoor), to SF households. See www.kitchengardensf.org.

We’re really happy to have picked two projects with strong roots in
permaculture. Our odds of success are much greater working with
others.

We’ve already heard interest in working together from other groups,
including the Wigg Party, the Bike Coalition, Rebar, SPUR, and others.
The neighborhood around the Wiggle might be ready to host a pilot
project, and there may be synergy with an ongoing effort in Hunters
Point
 as well.

We’ll devote much of the meeting to
kicking off our collaboration around City Repair, and will be inviting
people from all interested groups to come. And we’ll devote a near-
future meeting to Kitchen Gardens.

We'll continue to be involved in the San Francisco Seed Library, which
is off to a great start, and continue to discuss a food currency,
which holds a lot of promise.

We invite you to come and get involved. This is already an exciting
year for Transition in San Francisco.
