living in a community that is walkable, bikeable, and busable. One where your food is healthy, 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 energy comes from clean, renewable sources. Where people are united by a common purpose and nature is protected to be enjoyed by all.
This is the vision of Transition Sarasota. Together, we can work to make it a REALITY.
Growing a more sustainable, just, and prosperous local food system.
Harvesting surplus produce from local farms to benefit the food insecure in our community.
Screenings of the most eye-opening documentary films you probably haven't seen yet.
We're already planning our 2018 Eat Local Week (October 19-28) - an annual, week-long celebration of the best of local food and farming. Watch for details!
