Welcome to Transition Monmouth!

We are residents of Monmouth County, NJ forming a grassroots Transition Initiative, one of 150+ in the US and hundreds around the world. Our mission is to encourage communities to take a proactive approach to the ecological and economic challenges of our time through localizing our food, energy, economy, and more. The Transition movement began in the UK (transitionnetwork.org). 

We seek to raise awareness of our options for creating healthy, sustainable communities and to help implement them. We believe that by getting involved, taking action and re-localizing our communities, we can improve our health, prosperity, and happiness. We welcome your participation. 

Please join our Facebook group and/or our Google group for the latest activity and to get to know us. If you have questions, comments or are interested in joining or starting a working group, please send us an email at transition-monmouth-info@googlegroups.com.

For more background information, please see transitionus.org and transitionnetwork.org.

Why Swap Seeds? 

Meet folks who are growing stuff! Also, localized seeds are part of the way we will adapt to effects of climate change. They are also a good way to avoid GMOs. Contact Wendy for further resources on seed saving as the key to food sovereignty.
