Grow Your Own Community

The movement toward self-sustaining communities is taking root in the Hudson Valley, New York.

Picture of Joel Richardson's "Suitman" which graces the cover of the April, 2012 Edition of Chronogram magazine. Richardson's street art can be seen through May 31st in Catskill, New York as part of the “Wall Street to Main Street” exhibition — a town-wide art installation.

Chronogram Editor Brian Mahoney says in his April Editor's Note: "The Transition Towns movement, which might be considered a form of occupy the future of one’s own community, is about creating local resiliency through mutual interdependence with community gardens, alternative energy sources, and the shared intelligence and resources of your neighbors actively planning for the possible challenges to come. The Transition Towns movement is taking hold in the Hudson Valley, as Paul E. McGinniss reports in 'Grow Your Own Community', with concerned citizens gathering to discuss a shared future rooted in collective action."
