Transition North Twin Cities

This is a group for people who live in the Northern suburbs of Minneapolis and St. Paul, primarily Coon Rapids, Blaine, Brooklyn Park, Shoreview, Andover, Anoka, Ramsey, East Bethel, Fridley, New Brighton, Stillwater, Minneapolis, and St. Paul. Most of our gatherings are held in Coon Rapids or Blaine and typically from 5 to 15 people will attend a gathering. Everyone is welcome!

Our group is in the “mulling” stage, trying to figure out if we want to become a formal Transition initiative. We try to follow the Transition model and find the concepts of peak oil and climate change big motivators in driving us to change the way we live.

We have been meeting since the fall of 2013 and have grown to about 40 people. We typically meet every other Monday evening in homes, local coffee shops, parks and various community meeting places.

Group members come together to share ideas and support each other in transitioning to simpler. more conscious ways of living in community with our neighbors and our ecosystem. Activities include:

  • Watching movies
  • Sharing gardening knowledge and the bounty of our gardens
  • Learning to forage 
  • Helping each other implement permaculture practices in our yards and gardens
  • Sharing resources
  • Sharing ideas and talking about climate change and peak oil

Because of the large area our members come from, we tend to focus more on connecting with the people that come to our gatherings than we do on connecting with institutions in our communities.

The best way to find out when and where we will meet next is to join our email list. Send a request to Tom Jablonski. We also have a Facebook page (see sidebar) and a blog at: (see the most recent three posts below). And for those without regular access to the internet, feel free to give Tom a call at 763-807-3698 and he will be glad to give you telephone updates.
