OK... so let's figure out what we actually want to call our group. I hadn't added a "location" yet... because I hadn't figured out how to say our location, since we are representing several…Continue

Hi Kay,
Glad to hear of your arrival in Los Osos. Welcome!!!
Our Transition Towns Coastal Initiating Group will be meeting either this week or next. You are welcome to come to our meeting, if you'd like. Your experience should be very valuable.
Many plans are shaping up for County Wide events that we will be taking part in this fall. We were taking the summer months off after our last event in May on Water Issues. Susan Wood, Paula Vigneault, and I are currently on the TT Initiating Group for the Coastal area. Rebecca Russell is on the task group for a community garden in Los Osos. Susan lives in Morro Bay, and the rest of us in Los Osos. We have a list of over 70 people who have attended at least one or more of our events.
Please contact me at or by phone 528-4510, and I'll catch you up on our activities.
Looking forward to meeting you.

Hi!!! We started looking for transition activity up here back in March/April, but were totally unaware of this group until just now! I started Transition Culver City in March of 2009 and we became "official" last summer.

We (my husband Richard and I) moved to Los Osos from Culver City at the end of June. I put Los Osos on the map as a place where we are "mulling" just recently - not knowing that there is a group here already.

YaY for Transition in coastal SLO! When will the next meeting be? Where do you all live?

I just invited a few more folks I know from Coastal area to join so hopefully we can build this group. What's the next Coastal event planned? In SLO we wrapped up our educational series and are expanding our awareness raising with everyone's help who attended. Next event at St. Stephen's is in January. But we have our all county Dec. 1st celebration first! Looking forward to that.

Thanks, Bob. You mean you didn't know Transition Coastal existed? Sure you did... you played Fresh for us in September-- Liana Forest, Paula Vigneault, and I are the initiating group... so in a sense it doesn't quite exist yet until we have more people involved.
I just added the "(SLO County)" to the title-- although in the description it already had the towns we are representing. I suppose I could spell it out... but I figure people who live in SLO know what we're talking about, and people who don't will know they are not in SLO anyway. It took me a little while to figure out about "slo" when I got here, but I wasn't THAT slo!!

I dint know you existed even though I see Im a member. weird... good for you!!!! I agree coastal is huge. slo coastal is good but ONLY us in SLO know what the hell SLO means.. perhaps thats good.. It took me about 6 months to know what people were talking about "slo" when I first moved here..... what is that?!
listing the cities will help as well.

good point, Liana, maybe we should change name to "SLO Coastal' ?
Comment by Liana Forest on September 1, 2009 at 12:58pm
Beautiful picture of our coast. But does everyone know where we are located?
