To all who find this blog, Transition Madison Area is on hiatus.
If you are interested in sustainability groups in the Madison area, then submit a post to this blog, and it will get to me eventually. I am happy to share what I know about what’s going on in the area.
we had cancelled the “In Transition 2.0” movie showing for the Alicia Ashman library on Aug.21st.
We have found someone to show it, so the showing is on for the 21st at 7:00 pm.
