Welcome to Transition Houston!

Transition Houston is an optimistic and energetic response to the dual challenges of climate change and peak oil at the local level. The Transition Movement supports the transition from oil dependency to local resilience by equipping communities with creative adaptations in areas such as food, energy, health, education, spirit and economy to generate a road map towards sustainable living.

Transition Houston serves to build on the wisdom of the existing resources in Houston’s diverse community to inspire, network and train localized communities to consider and adapt Rob Hopkins’ transition model. Together we can unite pools of ingenuity and skills to unleash the collective genius of our own people in finding self-determined solutions.

 Transition takes action by:

  • Raising awareness of peak oil and climate change and related issues.
  • Building resilience across a wide range of areas and scales, and doing all we can to ensure general environmental resilience.
  • Providing access to good information in ways which are playful, articulate, accessible and engaging, and which will enable people to feel enthused and empowered rather than powerless.
  • Empowering communities with tools to relocalize its resources and reskill its members.

Transition Houston meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m. Please check the calendar for the location of the meeting.

Garden Gonzales 2014

We were so fortunate, thanks to my brother Charlie, Mark Juedeman and all the other GREAT folks, to get involved with Transition Houston in 2009. At the first meeting, a drawing was held and the lucky winner would host the first Permablitz in Houston. Charles won, but at the time, could not take on the project. So... he went in search of another to host it. After checking with his church and I then offered the option to the University of Houston Downtown who was just starting up a community garden, alas, neither were able to host.

Long and short, we decided to start our first garden and get involved with the Transition movement.
