Forming A Community Of Conservation In San Diego

Building on a model from a U.K. organization, a group of people in San Diego has come together to help each other build a more conservation-minded, sustainable lifestyle.

It’s a response to the drought, of course, but Transition Streets San Diego is also focused on energy, transportation, food and waste.

Here & Now‘s Robin Young talks with Jamie and Leslie Edmonds, the couple leading the effort, and group member Gawain Tomlinson.
