Minneapolis: Corcoran Grows

Corcoran GROWS is a group of concerned neighbors who believe tough environmental problems can be addressed by our neighborhood coming together to learn, share, and support one another. In order to accomplish our goals, we are using the Transition Town framework and its 12 step process.

The mission of Corcoran GROWS is to unleash the potential of its neighbors, through a variety of efforts that empower our community to work together toward greater self-reliance. The goals we seek to accomplish are to:

  • Educate each other about global resource depletion by sharing our knowledge, skills, and resources at the local level.
  • Advocate for personal and collective actions that sustain and improve life for present and future generations.
  • Rejuvenate relationships with ourselves, our neighbors and the land.
