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!  

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 new zine by Regula Russelle— neighbor, Transitioner, and book artist. Read it here (double-click cover for best view), then print copies to share. Download the copyright-free zine layout and instructions. Then check out two more zines with a Transition theme.

Smaller footprint,
stronger community.

Help raise local awareness of our climate emergency and the solutions at hand. Give to Transition Town - ASAP.

Local groups shared sustainability ideas at our Emergence Festival, July 2021.

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, MN.)
