rebuilding community resilience and self-reliance



Welcome to Transition Town Manitou Springs. Transition Town is a resource for the Manitou Springs community (and the Pikes Peak Region) to allow the transition away from our dependence on a fossil fuel-based culture and into a more sustainable, resilient and self-reliant way of life. Transition Town is meant to inform, inspire, encourage, and help organize our community of 5000 to begin to act, innovate and create viable models and structures of sustainability in all areas of community life. This involves, but is not limited to, the areas of food security, local economy, energy production and use, transportation, health care, and housing.

In 2014, Transition Manitou Springs helped to open the  Local First Grocer Cooperative. This was an new kind of grocery store that prioritized local over profit. It is also the only grocery store in our town of 5000.

On January 7, 2015 Transition Manitou became an “Official” Transition Town! We are now recognized globally as an organization that is actively helping our community to decrease our dependence on fossil fuels and live a healthier more resilient lifestyle.

TT Manitou has also been invited to participate in a pilot program for Transition Streets. We will give you more information on this project in the coming days.

We invite you to join us.
