A positive, local response

to climate change

Neighbors addressing climate change

Transition Town — All St. Anthony Park

Smaller Footprint, Stronger Community

We’re neighbors linking up to live responsibly on the Earth.  Our ideas are as many as the challenges we all face. But they may not yet include yours. Come, think, work, and celebrate with us!  


Our purpose is to raise our neighborhood's understanding of climate change and the limits of fossil fuels, and to foster a positive, community-wide transition to more sustainable ways of life... ASAP.  ASAP reminds us that climate change calls for our best efforts, right now. All Saint Anthony Park means South and North; renters and homeowners; newcomers and long-timers; businesses and nonprofits, students and seniors; faith groups, youth groups... all are needed.  (See a map of our area of St. Paul, Minnesota.)  We're looking ahead and expanding our "habits of the heart," as shown here (details).

Water Companion Workshop

Ranae's new book Watershed: Attending to Body and Earth in Distress explores the parallels between human and planetary health, from her own Minnesota roots to her diverse students' accounts of climate change on other continents. Order it from Winding Trail Books, co-sponsor of the workshop.
