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, students and seniors; faith groups, youth groups... all are needed. (See a map of our area of St. Paul, Minnesota.)  Sign up for our newsletter and join the 500 neighbors who stay informed and join in when they can: email   Got time to do more? Send us a note— we’ll connect.  Feel free to propose a project or event we can support: email Mike at

During the pandemic, we've reflected, grieved, and dreamed of a better world. We've also learned new habits, some of them worth keeping! Keepers is a new zine booklet by Regula Russelle— neighbor, Transitioner, and book artist. Read it here (double-click the cover for best view), then print your own copies to share. Download the copyright-free zine layout and instructions. Then check out two more Transition-themed zines!
