transition town training off to a great start

Last week dozens of participants joined with Transition Town trainers Janet and Jacinta at Birdsland to learn about energy descent plans and planning for a carbon and oil constrained economy.

It was great to be able to welcome participants to Birdsland, I was also able to report on councils resolution to develop a Peak Oil Response Plan for Yarra Ranges.

Reports back were very positive with three local groups formed in the Sherbrooke, Emerald/Gembrook and Montrose regions to do more work on transitioning our community for an oil constrained, climate change future.

The training was instigated by local Kallista resident, Kristy Henderson, who is part of the newly formed Birdsland Environment Collective. The collective is passionate about Birdsland and are keen to reinstate the heritage orchard and create a community garden.

They have great vision and energy for Birdsland and I look forward to seeing their plans come to fruition.
