Transition Humboldt invites the public to attend a benefit music and dance event at the Bayside Grange on Saturday, March 30th from 7 PM to Midnight. Featured performers will be Beatles cover band Silver Hammer and Grateful Dead cover band Miracle Show. We will also celebrate the 60th birthday of local environmental activist “Redwood” Larry Goldberg. Opening the event will be local musician Seabury Gould. Food, beer and wine will be available for sale. This event is open to the general public and all ages are welcome (21+ ID for alcohol). A donation of $10 is requested at the door, but no one will be refused due to lack of funds. The proceeds of this event will provide scholarships for “Training for Transition” in late April sponsored by Transition Humboldt (more information available on website).
Transition Humboldt is a community organization dedicated to developing local self-sustainable options in light of global climate change, the end of cheap oil and economic insecurities. Transition Humboldt events are open to the general public and the group has a Facebook page under the name of Transition Humboldt.
There are over 1000 Transition initiatives around the world, responding to uncertain times with creativity, solutions and “engaged optimism.” Transition communities do a variety of activities including: creating local currencies, growing food in public spaces, localizing their economies, skill sharing and developing community energy production. It’s an idea that has gone viral, a social experiment that is about responding to uncertain times with solutions and optimism. In a world that is awash with gloom, here is a story of hope, ingenuity and the power of taking control of our own destinies.
