Programs and projects


Community Catalyst Awards | Established in 2013 to honor the many unsung heroes growing resilience in Oklahoma City, we commissioned a talented local artist to create a beautifully symbolic piece of art that serves as the award. More on this program here.

Fruit and nut tree plantings | Transition OKC created this program in 2014 in memory of Don Rose, a dedicated TOKC volunteer who was passionate about growing resilient, healthy, sustainable communities. Planting fruit and nut trees contributes to community resilience for many years into the future. Our first planting took place in 2015 at SixTwelve, an organization dedicated to building community in a myriad of ways. We look forward to continuing this living memorial to our friend Don for many years to come.

Networking, collaboration, and social media | We offer connectivity to the wider community through our social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, by sharing info and supporting the activities of the many great organizations in Oklahoma City working to build community, health, sustainability and resilience.

Resilience Teams | Resilience Teams share resources and skills, save money, time and energy, and support each other through the ordinary and extraordinary challenges of life. Learn how to start, organize, facilitate and develop a Resilience Team here. Available to all kinds of groups – friends, family, church and civic groups and more.

Resilience Teams are self-organized and each independent group decides what activities to pursue — from helping each other grow and preserve food, to learning new skills like gardening, cooking seasonally with locally grown food, to setting goals a group can work on together such as reducing personal carbon footprints. Along the way, teams have fun while building supportive relationships.


Since 2009, we’ve organized or been a part of more than 100 hundred projects and events.
