living in a community that is walkable, bikeable, and busable. One where your food comes fresh from a local farm or straight from your own garden. Where people know and look after each other. Where there is a network of local businesses that can thrive in any economy. Where our homes are powered by clean, renewable energy. Where people are united by a common purpose. Where nature is protected to be enjoyed by all.
This is the vision of Transition Sarasota. Together, we can work to make it a reality.
