Transition The Grove Inc
In North-West Brisbane, this Transition Town has been operating actively since 2010.
We take a ‘portfolio’ approach to building resilience in our local area defined by the upper catchment suburbs of Kedron Brook ( Everton Hills, Arana Hills, Ferny Hills, Ferny Grove, Upper Kedron, Keperra, Grovely, Mitchelton, Gaythorne and some of Enoggera).
So we look at Local health, lifelong learning, environment, energy, governance, water, transport, culture, building, natural resources, business & finance, recreation, food production, security, facilities, waste reduction & building non-renewable resources locally, and soil. We take a Head, Heart, Hands approach.
Increasingly we find that supportive relationships between members are the key to resilience, so we meet in our homes taking turns as hosts, share meals, visit each other socially and become friends including each other in our lives, share resources, help each other, and build trust and affection. We mix deep philosophical and experiential learning about resilience and are on a journey. We belong to other local groups and are very active in our community.
