Local Lawton

January 2015: Brainstorming

Transition Towns are an international program to help towns and cities across the world work together to build local resilience in the face of climate changes, oil depletion, and economic crisis. (see transitionus.com)

We’re meeting on Wednesday the 21st at 7pm to talk about what programs we want to offer this year. Please let us know what YOU are interested in seeing (and helping out with) to make Lawton more vibrant and resilient.

We are an all-volunteer, small grassroots organization. Last year we published an awesome, free Local Food Guide (made with zero advertising or budget), held educational film programs such as Food, Inc., FLOW (How Did a Handful of Corporations Steal our Water?), and The Sanctity of Sanctuary; we held “reskilling” events like Canning and Freezing, Probiotic Fermentation, Medicinal Herbs, Solar Dehydrators and Ovens; we held a spring seed exchange and continue to monitor our Seed Bank in the Lawton Public Library, and work with 4th and 5th graders in the Elementary School garden. We also had a campaign to get backyard Chickens accepted in the Village ordinances — not successful, but at least it opened the discussion! We can’t do these without you and your support, so please join us!
