Bi-Weekly Look-Ahead – 2017.07.25

25 July, 2017 at 12:59 pm Leave a comment

Hi all,

We’re aiming to experiment with a new post format – twice a month, we’ll do an update with all the events coming up in the next month.  So, without further ado…

Share and Inspire: Transition Towns Convergence

An opportunity for Transition Town people (so, anyone involved with any Transition groups, including us) to reconnect and share stories, news, ideas and plans. Ideal for people wanting to start a Transtion group or find new ways to build a resilience, localised and sustainable community.
The day’s program will include sessions on:
– sharing our celebrations and challenges – including posters and short presentations
– discussing issues of interest or concern
– Briefing on Transition Hub Australia and the 2017 Transition Communities National Summit.

Saturday 29 July 2017 9.30am-4.30pm at  
The Hub @ Docklands, 80 Harbour Esplanade, Docklands 3008

Please RSVP by 26 July here.

Really Really Free Market #4

Transition Darebin is partnering with the Really Really Free Market because it’s an exciting and valuable initiative, and we think you might be interested.

A community gathering where participants give away usable items, skills, food, entertainment, games and many others things that a community can come together and share. A RRFM is a 100% free and non-commercial event (no bartering or advertising), created by participants who show up each month!

Movies Screenings, Bowen Therapy, Jewellery Repair, Bike Repair, Arts Space, Mosaic, Music, Clothes, Bric-a-Brac, Yoga, Veggie Seedlings, Zines, Food, ‘Class-less-Room,’ Haircuts, more to come!

Just North of Murray Road, Preston, along the Railway Reserve Bike Path (extension of St. Georges Rd Bike Path).
Bike: It’s along the path, so suited for cyclists.
Train: 50m Walk from Preston Station, Nearby 86 Tram and High St. Buses.
Car: Ample Parking at Preston Station.
Low mobility access: Drop off at Stanworth Ct, the market is a few meters along a unpaved path.

When?  Sunday July 30, 10 am to 2 pm

Convivial Kitchen’s Natural Skin Care Workshop

Transition Darebin is hosting a homemade natural skin care workshop which will be presented by Taj Scicluna, the Perma Pixie.

Food Swaps

We have three Food Swaps each month.


The next food swap will be on Saturday August 12, from 11 to 12 pm.  It can be found at 251 High St Northcote in the side garden of the church.


The next food swap will be on Saturday August 19, from 10 to 11 am.  It can be found at the pop up park on corner of Broadway  and Cheddar Rd. Reservoir.

South Preston

The next food swap will be on Saturday August 26, from 11 to 12 pm.  It can be found at the corner of Oakover Road and High St, South Preston (outside the op shop, either at the front in the garden or out the back if shade is needed).

Food Swaps are an occasion to meet your community, talk about gardens and sustainability and swap excess produce from your garden, or something you made in your kitchen. You bring some and get to take some away as with all good swaps.

Ideas of what to bring:

  • seeds from your garden
  • seedlings
  • fruit
  • vegetables
  • herbs
  • preserves
  • cordials
  • sour dough starter

The list goes on…
