Transition Laguna is doing amazing things. The edible garden installs have been a catalyst in community building. Next Thursday, April 12, Transition is producing a solar power roundtable with three companies on the leading edge of new technologies that can save homeowners money, and reduce our reliance on the grid. It’s at 7 p.m. at Bridge Hall, Neighborhood Congregational Church, and it’s free.
Then on Saturday, April 21, Transition and SEEDS are producing Laguna’s 1st annual Earth Day celebration in conjunction with Nancy Caruso’s Kelp Fest. The city has agreed to close lower Park Ave (at the nexus of Coast Highway and Forest) for this all day event that includes an Eco-Village, Eco-Lounge, and Eco-Expo.
There will be demos on solar cooking, edible gardens, urban composting, water re-use, permaculture, and free guided bike tours of Transition garden installs, plus speakers and music throughout the day. It’s directly across from Kelp Fest and builds on the momentum Nancy has built to create a day of environmental awareness and education.
More efforts are in the works, including bike rack installs all over town, more recycle bins in public places, and more movies and presentations.
It’s wonderful to live among such a committed group of volunteers who love our city so much that they want to make it an even better.
