Transition Darebin: Kicking off 2011
Thanks to everyone who came to our kick off for 2011, on Sunday 13th February @ Loophole Community Centre, 670 High St Thornbury. If you couldn’t make it but want to get involved, you’re in luck!
You can have a look at the notes attached to see what’s going on and how you can get involved, then email us to get in touch.
Or you can come along to our Transition Darebin project “speed dating” session – where you get to meet lots of folks doing fascinating stuff and work out how you might be able to work together.
To get you started preparing for this meeting, ask yourself what effects of peak oil and climate change might have in the future? What changes are needed locally and what systems do we need in place to help our community respond to these events? And finally, what is your vision for Darebin and how can we start making this a reality?
At the last meeting ideas, plans and projects included food coops, food swaps, community initiated (guerrilla) gardening bees, permaculture designs for the Uniting Church and Reservoir Neighbourhood House, autumn leaf harvests, local business guides, local economics, sustainable clothing, local sustainable house tours and many, many more.
This meeting is our chance to turn ideas into plans, so please bring along your project ideas whether these are at the half-baked or ready-to-go stage, or come and contribute to making someone else’s exciting project a reality.
The format will be fun and flexible and we’re looking forward to another passionate and productive meeting with all you lovely locals.
