Community Rising is a grassroots initiative seeking ways to enhance local resiliency through positive community action. We believe that now is the time to rethink the way that we live and to make conscious choices about our future. Our aim is to explore the diversity of pathways that will build a localized, vibrant, healthy community.

We are a registered Transition Initiative through the Transition Towns Network. We decided to join the Transition Network and to adapt the Transition Town model because it is based on the philosophy of PermacultureThis model takes a holistic approach when looking at the resources in our community and all of the different variables are taken into consideration.

Community Rising has participated in the following projects in collaboration with the Ketchum Community Development Corporation (KCDC) and the City of Ketchum: 

  • Fourth Street Heritage Corridor – making our town more pedestrian and cycle friendly (2006-2008)
