Climate Resiliency through Localized Solutions
Take Action. Make a difference. Support us today.
Welcome to Transition Fidalgo
Our mission is to spur local responses to climate change that strengthen our community and help heal the planet. TF urges a move away from fossil fuels through decreasing energy demand, increasing efficiency, supporting renewable energy, and fostering the local production of food, energy, and goods. We envision a world where humanity has drastically reduced its reliance on fossil fuels, living wisely and well within planetary limits.
What We Do
We’re proud of the variety and impact of the projects we sponsor. From forest monitoring to school gardens, we believe in creating change from the ground up. Learn how to get involved today!
The backbone of Transition Fidalgo is education and engagement. We invite guests to present at our monthly meetings about various topics centering around clean energy and climate change. Tune in to our next meeting!
Scholarships and Grants
We are pleased to offer grants to Fidalgo Island students and school district projects. These grants are funded by community members giving specified donations for our scholarship program.
If you love working with kids, gardening, and being outside with like-minded people, we have a great volunteer opportunity for YOU!
Our Anacortes Middle School Garden to Kitchen Class is seeking enthusiastic volunteers! Engage with 6th to 8th graders in this rewarding program, dedicating just one day a week for two-hour sessions during school hours. Your contribution matters!
If you're excited to be a part of this impactful program and collaborate with like-minded individuals, reach out to us at:
Laurie Sherman - email@example.com
Transition Fidalgo - firstname.lastname@example.org
Together, we're cultivating resilience and self-sufficiency by imparting sustainable life skills. The garden, situated near 24th and M Ave, serves as a living classroom. Currently, we gather there most Tuesday mornings from 10 AM to 12 PM this summer. Feel free to drop by and witness the magic firsthand! 🌿
Community Produce Stands are Back!
Transition Fidalgo's "Share-the-Bounty" stands have once again sprouted in our community. They're ready to accept any extra garden goodies you can spare (on my list today is to donate zukes, snow peas, and greens).
You'll find the free produce stands at the entrances to the Anacortes Library, the Senior Center, and the Harbor House. Anyone is welcome to take whatever fresh food they can.
These are not easy times. Let's share our bounty with those among us who may not be able to access or afford fresh home-grown veggies and fruits.
