There are many actions you can take to reduce your carbon footprint. Transition Longfellow does skill shares, hosts discussion and action groups, educates people about renewable energy and community solar gardens, and organizes activities (like helping with the 2015 Longfellow Energy Fair).

Volunteer for Energy-Related Activities
Energy Mini-Challenge Organizers: We'd like to bring back the once-a-month energy challenge, picking one energy reduction activity to try each month. We've got 2 people on the organizing team but we could use 2 more volunteers. The group will meet, plan the mini-challenges and switch off hosting the once-a-month meeting.
