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

Transition Movie Night - Take Back Your Power

November 17, 2017, 6:30pm

This month's movie is "Take Back Your Power," a documentary looking at the rise of smart meters, used by utilities to remotely monitor home and business electrical use. (According to its website, Xcel has begun using these meters in Boulder, Colorado, but is not yet using them in Minneapolis.) The film provides evidence of in-home surveillance and privacy invasion, increased utility bills, health and environmental harm, home fires, and susceptibility for hacking. It also offers strategies citizens can use to prevent this technology from being installed. (For more information about the InPower movement, visit inpowermovement.com/.)

Transition Twin Cities Celebration Potluck

December 2, 2017, 6:00pm - December 2, 2017, 8:30pm

We're wrapping up one of the most successful years for Transition in the Twin Cities with a potluck celebration. There will be singing, storytelling and an open-space question inspired by Richard Heinberg's talk at the National Gathering: "What is a culture worth preserving and how do we build it?"

Bring a food or drink item to share, and a story of resilience in the face of challenge. Bring a friend from your local Transition group, or someone you know who is interested in Transition.

Although we head into a dark season, we carry a light with us. Let it shine - on this night and as we move forward into 2018.
