Anyone who’s interested in Transition is welcome at our monthly gatherings!
When – 4th Monday of every month
Where – McIntire Room at Central Library, 201 E. Market St., Charlottesville
6pm-6:45pm – Potluck & swap table. Bring a dish to share (if you can) and/or an item that needs a new home.

8:45pm – After party! We’ll announce a spot to continue the conversation.
Monday, May 27, 1pm-3pm
Join us for a Fossil Fuel Free Feast and summer party with good old-fashioned activities like a 3-legged race, acoustic music, frisbee, and of course food! We’ll have solar cookers demonstrating how to bake outdoors using the sun’s heat. Bring a potluck dish to share, and challenge yourself to creatively prepare food without fossil fuels – sun-baked, wood-grilled, pickled, fermented, fresh from the garden etc. Look for recipe ideas coming soon on the Transition Cville Blog.
One of our favorite things about Transition is “reskilling:” re-learning forgotten arts and skills for living well without fossil fuels. Check out our Skill Share page for upcoming and ongoing events. Do you have an heirloom skill to share? Contact us.
