Transition Rochester

Transition Rochester is still forming.

It is an outgrowth of the Backyard Bounty Urban Homesteading Meetup group, with connections to numerous other environmental groups and events in Rochester.

Rochester is a progressive city and the home of Mayo Clinic, thus healthcare is very prevalent. The city is experiencing rapid growth, but is well positioned to embrace sustainability and resilience. Transition Towns is the right organization to contribute to Rochester’s future.

Accomplishments: Film screenings are growing our local outreach efforts with attendance doubling since the winter. We have several energy and food projects currently underway in 2019, each led by various leaders of our group.
