Transition Rochester is the newest Transition group in Minnesota. It is an outgrowth of the Backyard Bounty Urban Homesteading Meetup group, and has connections to numerous other environmental groups and events in Rochester.
Rochester is a progressive city and the home of Mayo Clinic, thus healthcare is a key concern for many. The city is experiencing rapid growth, but is well positioned to embrace sustainability and resilience.
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.
