Bringing together

the head, heart and hands of community to re-localize and thrive.

Welcome to Transition Asheville!

Transition Asheville is involved in many aspects of what some have called the Great Transition – the shift for the world’s populations away from extractive industries and attitudes limited by the finite nature of the Earth and toward working within these limitations to regenerate and meet the basic needs for all of us.  This is true not only for the obvious shifts in energy sources, but for food, water, transportation, housing, economy, and heart-and-soul as well.  Keep up-to-date with what we are doing through our Events and News and Resources pages here on our website, and through our e-newsletter.  We hope you will join us at our monthly socials and find an activity or project that makes you want to join or lead this effort.
