Upcoming Events!   

REconomy
Our new Economy group is looking at ways to make the local economy more sustainable.  Many Transition Initiatives refer to this as "REconomy."  We are planning a Repair Cafe and exploring ways that we can help promote our local time bank.  We would love to hear your thoughts and ideas on how to best develop a thriving local economy. Our next meeting will be on December 15 at 7:30PM in Ellicott City. Everyone is welcome to participate. Please contact transitionhoco@gmail.com for details and directions. 

Come to Miller Library to see Racing To Zero, a quick-moving, upbeat documentary presenting new solutions to the global problem of waste. The film follows San Francisco's innovative efforts towards achieving zero waste, dramatically reducing the city's carbon footprint. It examines our society's garbage practices in terms of consumption, preparation, use and production, and discovers some amazing solutions. Come be inspired! If San Francisco can do it, so can we!   
There will be 2 showings on January 12: 2PM and 6:30PM
