WHAT ARE WE ALL ABOUT? update!
Transition Lyons is an inclusive gathering of community in a spirit of engaged optimism within an energy constrained future. Our collective vision for a more connected, healthy, vibrant and sustainable community is part of the grassroots world-wide Transition Movement whose mission is to promote resilient, regenerative, self-reliant life for area residents into the future.
Our entire community is collaboratively supporting Transition Lyons core groups into being. Each part of the community is honoring the re-skillings and collective genius of each other. Conversations that matter are now a part of the comprehensive Town Plan's implementation, sponsoring Transition and Permaculture principles, events and education. We are on a cool RTD bus linkage with increased schedule and stops using FREE ecopasses issued to a majority of residents, valid through 2014. Core Transition is taught within Lyons Permaculture 101 sessions. Emphasis is on nature's rights, economic localization, buy local, teaching core EDAP and Permaculture first responding, even investigating becoming a NO GMO town. Our Lyons Sustainable Futures Commission's committee on Foodshed, economic localization and permaculture is fortified by many new Permaculture certified leaders of Energy systems, water health practices, VBC Placemaking, and has a new WWTP (Waste Water Treatment Plant) Committee bringing Jonathan Todd's EcoMachine technological biological wizardry to Lyons for a 3-day comprehensive design team initiative exploring 2 sites: existing and a new site. We periodically do celebrations to give thanks to our surrounding riparian natural wonders.
Our residents, businesses and government groups have signed on to Boulder County's zero waste program and are re-localizing buying, free-cycling, producing of goods, services and jobs to strengthen our local economy, keep wealth in our community and maintain Lyons unique character. We are working on an electric bus solar station that would serve to refuel electric vehicles and reduce non renewable energy consumption, reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Our goal to become a carbon neutral, zero waste, and be an economically viable model town is making gains. We offer Transition support, tools, Permaculture food and system design education workshops. Proactively we prepare positive scenarios to the difficult challenges we all face.
