What’s new with Transition Town Glassboro?
Redbud saplings are still available! Fall is the best time to plant a tree. See below for details on how we can give you a tree.
WHAT IS A TRANSITION TOWN?
Transition Towns are a global movement to transform our local communities by making them more sustainable, more interconnected, and more resilient to change. It was started in response to anxiety over future challenges the world is facing, and has spread from one town in England to become a global phenomenon. By coming together, local communities are able to crowd-source solutions. They seek to nurture a caring culture, one focused on supporting each other, both as groups or as wider communities.
Transition Town Glassboro, a 501c4 non-profit organization, is part of this larger movement. It is made up of local community residents who want to bring about a more resilient future for Glassboro. Working with other community organizations and the Borough, we would like to invite every resident to our meetings, or just to share your ideas with us, attend our events, or join one of our working groups and start a project of your own. We seek to include everyone from all parts of Glassboro, regardless of race, income, gender, or sexual orientation. By coming together, we are stronger than when we are alone.

What We’re Doing
During 2019-2020 Transition Town Glassboro is promoting planting more trees in our community to replace those lost over the years.
Trees are a carbon sink that helps ameliorate global warming. One tree will absorb one ton of CO2 in its lifetime!
Glassboro has lost almost 300 acres of forested land to development since 1986.https://www.njmap2.com/landuse/
Transition Town Glassboro is working on replenishing Glassboro’s shade tree cover.
We received 40 tree seedlings from the Arbor Day Foundation and have planted them temporarily until we can give them away. Contact us using the email form below if you are interested in receiving one.
The photo to the left is an American Redbud (one of the seedling species we received) in spring bloom.
How You Can Get Involved
Our monthly meetings are the third Tuesday of every month at 6:30 pm.
