transition towns: dandenong ranges
adapting our communities to climate change and peak oil
I was pleased to help facilitate funding for this important community strengthening workshop. I was approached by some interested community members about funding for Transition Towns training. I was keen to support the workshop, make cost of the workshops more affordable and see the training delivered locally. Many people have expressed an interest in Transition Towns and Energy Descent Plans for townships across the Dandenongs.
Kevin and I at the Tecoma Community Garden, Kevin is the most amazing recycler I have ever come across. This arbour he created is made of old ladders which were being thrown away. The Tecoma Community Garden gives people the opportunity to garden in a social and caring environment and is a practical way to play a role in Transistioning your Town.
This workshop is both a practical and informative introduction to the logic and framework of the Transition Towns model. This grassroots international movement builds localised and resilient communities in response to climate change and peak oil. The workshop is both informative and experiential, weaving together practice and theory, and the transition required at both the personal and community level in order to build a resilient and sustainable community.
