Minneapolis: Transition Northeast

Transition NE is a “mulling” group, which means it is a less formal group that is not registered with the national transition network. The group formed in 2011 as an offshoot of a study group that met weekly at the Blue Moon Cafe in south Minneapolis. Participants come from the Northeast area, primarily. The group focuses on residents.

Folks from Transition Northeast meet every month on the 1st Tuesday at 8:30 am at Diamond’s Coffee Shop, 1618 Central Ave., Mpls. During this meeting, events in the community are announced and activities are planned, as well as general conversation about issues related to transitioning.

Activities

The group's activities are primarily advertised through the Transition Twin Cities Meetup Group. Aside from the Tuesday meeting, they have no other regularly scheduled monthly activities.

  • In January 2016, the group will demonstrate the process for converting wood to biochar (a soil amendment).
  • Members participated in the walipini construction project at Northeast United Methodist Church in 2015
  • The group holds occasional movie / discussion events in conjunction with the Eastside Food Co-op
  • They engage in the study of permaculture and discuss gardening
