Visit Carey Link

Carey Link is a group of folks in Carey, a town about 40 minutes east of Bluffton, that has much in common with Transition Bluffton. A regular activity they have is a repair clinic, where volunteers fix small appliances, clothing, bicycles, etc. at no charge for people in the community. The Link has a storefront in downtown Carey where the repair clinics and other activities take place.

We are planning a visit to Carey on this Saturday, Nov. 17 to check out the repair clinic and learn more about the organization. All are invited – we will be carpooling, meeting at the Twisted Whisk coffee shop at 9 AM Saturday. If you are interested please call Ken at 417-358-0572. Read more about the Link here.

Activism- Make it Local

Struggling to get that change you so desperately know the world needs?  Running out of money and steam while trying hard to make important changes in the world?  Have you considered the power of making that change locally.

That is one of the goals of Transition US and one of the basic precepts of Transition Bluffton.  There is power in starting with our own families, houses and land that can lead to great change at a community level.  Working locally allows you to direct all your energies toward a solution you can enjoy the outcome of directly and still make global change.  Once others outside the community notice the positive change within your community they will want to know how the change occurred. When they come to you TEACH them.  This is where true activism occurs.

Sign up on the right to get the Newsletter from Transition Bluffton or email admin@transitionbluffton.org to get involved with others locally.
