We will continue discussing and narrowing down possible projects that our volunteers can take on.  Please bring your ideas.  Here are the ideas we discussed during the last meeting:

1.    Food Forest. Could be at Golden Gate Park or McLaren Park, or block by block
2.    Timebank, implemented at the neighborhood and organizational level, alternative currencies
3.    Solar cookers project, ie 1000 solar cookers
4.    City Repair (from Portland), Transition one intersection at a time!
5.    10/10/10-type day for Transition worldwide
6.    Connect neighborhoods in San Francisco to Transition (ie neighborhood-level Transition groups)
7.    Great Unleashing
8.    Permablitz/kitchen gardens project
9.    Something to do with finance
10.    Energy Descent Action Plan (could be separate or parallel project)
11.    Steve's sharable lot in the Mission
12.    A printed newspaper for Transition activities, present and future
13.    Working with the SF Organizing Project (see previous post)
14.    Serve as a kind of volunteer corps/ support team
15.    Work with the Bike Coalition et al on a big but time-limited biking project
16.    Humanure - people-generated compost
17.    A guide to nonprofits, perhaps tying in gift circles. Perhaps have a call center, like MarinLink
18.    Work as assistants to Neighborhood Empowerment Network (NEN) to learn and build skills
19.    Contribute to/evangelize/use NEN leadership training efforts
20.    Go out to existing neighborhood groups and ask "what do you need"? Perhaps "flood" one neighborhood with help. Do one or more projects, build credibility, then fold Transition-related efforts into the mix. (Relates to #14)
