Phil recently shared about Transition on WNIT’s “Experience Michiana”, in an interview with Krista Bailey and “Talking Sustainability”
Since some of the projects didn’t make the cut, here’s a sampling of what Transition Goshen is about besides talking:
- Connecting Our Local Foodshed
- Crowdfunding panel discussion
- “Expanding the Garden” open space

- Reporting on local sustainability initiatives
- Permaculture workshops
(ok, most of these are still more “talk” than action, but we’re learning how to organize actions and gaining some valuable insights to shift broader conversations!)
