January Activities for Longfellow Sustainability Group

January marks 1 year of sustainability for Peter and I. In January, we met with Sage and MarAnn to brainstorm the creation of the Longfellow sustainability group, which is now called Transition Longfellow. To celebrate a year of activities and fellowship, the group is planning a special event. EVERYONE is invited, but we’d particularly like to see you if you’ve been following us on Facebook, or if you attended a Saturday morning meeting or came to a movie night.

JANUARY 7 – Pancake Breakfast Celebration
9 to 11 am
Bethany Lutheran Church, 3900 36th Avenue S.
We’ll share what we’ve accomplished and what we’ve learned. We’ll talk about our plans for activities in 2012. And we’ll have a silent auction of hand-mad items. If you want to donate something, let me know. I’m handling the auction.

ALSO this month

January 20 Movie Night
6:30 pm potluck, 7:15 movie
Bethany Lutheran Church, 3900 36th Avenue S.
The Real Dirt on Farmer John is a poignant and often hilarious look at an honest farmer’s struggle to keep his farm from foreclosure, and to save his family name. This movie is FREE and open to the public.

About thinkofitasanadventure

We are a 50-something couple living in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis. We attended a sustainability conference at our local high school in November 2010, with keynote speaker Richard Heinberg from the Post Carbon Institute. What we heard shocked us deeply. We finally understood the need to transition away from fossil fuels as quickly as possible. We immediately began to change the way we live. We joined together with other folks in our neighborhood to learn more, to do more and to have fun doing it! We're part of Transition Longfellow. We're choosing to change now and to "think of it as an adventure." If you are on this journey too, we'd love to hear from you.
