Brings neighbors and community members together to build a more sustainable, self-reliant future for Berkeley. We envision a strong, diverse local economy, with a greatly reduced dependence on fossil fuels, and a cooperative, rewarding community life.Transition Berkeley is part of a growing international network of Transition initiatives. We're joining cities and towns from around the world to face the enormous challenges of economic instability, climate change and fossil fuel dependency. There are hundreds of Transition Initiatives worldwide and Transition Berkeley is proud to become the 110th U.S. Initiative.
The Transition approach will help Berkeley to envision and create a future with more locally produced food and other necessities, cleaner forms of transportation and energy. Along the way, we'll build a more equitable and vibrant local economy and re-learn practical skills our grandparents once had.
Join us and discover just how powerful the collective genius can be when people work together!

Join us for this inspiring and informative evening where we’ll show the film, “Permaculture: the Growing Edge”, hear from local gardening representatives and experts on how you can tap into local opportunities for growing food.
Permaculture is a sustainable system of earth care that offers solutions to many of our grave environmental problems and a hopeful, proactive vision of change. The film introduces us to inspiring examples of projects, and includes a visit to David Holmgren’s own homestead, tracking deer with naturalist Jon Young, sheet mulching an inner-city garden with Hunters Point Family, transforming an intersection into a gathering place with City Repair and joining mycologist Paul Stamets as he cleans up an oil spill with mushrooms.
