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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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).
Help raise local awareness of our climate emergency and the solutions at hand. Give to Transition Town - ASAP.

The Sentence by Louise Erdrich
Two Saturdays: July 16 and/or Aug. 20
3:00–4:30 pm on Zoom (attend either or both)
Erdrich's latest novel is of our own time and place: the Twin Cities in the early 2020s. Read a sample, then buy local at Next Chapter or (better yet) Birchbark Books, the Minneapolis store owned by Erdrich and the setting for parts of this novel. It's also in libraries.
