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 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, youth, students, and seniors; faith groups, people of all ethnicities... all are needed. (See a map of our area of St. Paul, Minnesota.)  

The 100 Trees Initiative is greening the streets of South St. Anthony Park. We're among the partners in this collaboration with the Creative Enterprise Zone.

Sign up for our newsletter and join the 400-plus neighbors who stay informed and join in when they can: email Communications@TransitionASAP.org. Got time to do more? Send us a note and we’ll connect.  Feel free to propose a project or event we can support: email Mike at mjblandford@yahoo.com.

During the pandemic, we've reflected, grieved, and dreamed of a better world. We've also learned new habits, some worth keeping! Keepers is a zine by neighbor and book artist Regula Russelle. Read it here, then print copies to share (instructions)

Reading Buddies:  

Book discussion on Zoom

Two Sundays: 

Jan. 8 & Feb. 12,

3:00–4:30 pm

Depicts a world worth building toward, a humanity worth saving from itself, and an alien community worth entering with open arms.

Set in the near future, Half-Built Garden is smart, thoughtful science fiction that extrapolates from our climate emergency. Author Ruthanna Emrys has been called a literary descendant of Ursula K. LeGuin. Read a sample here, then consider buying it from a local shop like Next Chapter.  On Jan. 8 we'll discuss the first half, on Feb. 12 the novel as a whole. Come to either or both sessions. For Zoom links, email Communications@TransitionASAP.org. Learn more about Reading Buddies.
