We are a community group in the Westchester neighborhood of Los Angeles (LA 90045, near LAX airport).

Founded in 2005 by Joanne Poyourow and Peter Rood, the Change-Makers have …

  • founded the Community Garden at Holy Nativity
  • helped found the Emerson Avenue Community Garden
  • set up a rudimentary “harvest redistribution network”
  • tested time-banking within the community
  • launched the Transition movement in Los Angeles
  • done lots of other awesome stuff along the way.

As of summer 2012, the Change-Makers are (finally) incorporating and en-route to becoming an official 501(c)(3) organization so that we can do even more  (ok, we do set our sights high!)
