TRANSITION TOWNS.

Mackay Community Garden Inc. is proud to support the local Transition Towns group.

The Steering Committee Meeting will be held on the Thursday September Sept 22nd at 6.30 at Environment Centre 156 Wood Street and is expected to be an enjoyable 2 hours in which we all will have a chance to share our ideas with like-minded people. Hope to see you there.


Hi All

Since last year we have been engaged in various activities to promote the concept of Transition Towns. We have a Facebook page (
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Transition-Mackay-Whitsunday-Isaac/236498569727542) and a webpage (http://permaculturemackay.org/transition-towns.php
)

We are writing to you now as the steering committee as we feel its time to meet as a group and have a discussion about the idea of Transition in the Region and gauge each person's energy and interest in the project. If you don't wish to be on our contact list then by all means let us know.

The meeting will be on Thursday September Sept 22nd at 6.30 at Environment Centre 156 Wood Street and is expected to be an enjoyable 2 hours in which we all will have a chance to share our ideas with like-minded people.
 
There is a fairly well-established process - known as the 12 Steps - which the community who is interested in Transition can implement - it involves education in the first instance, creating a vision and beginning to take action on whatever projects people are interested in. We seek to call you all together in order to begin this process.

We have done a number of different things in the last 12 months to raise awareness but for this to be a success requires that we drawn in everyone who is interested in the concept, who is working towards community resilence and eco-social justice already, so we can pool our effects to create a more liveable future for Mackay and the region.

Please put this out to any interested people you know, friends, family or any social networks and email lists - it would be much appreciated. If you could drop us an email letting us know you're coming that would be good - but is not essential.

We'd be interested in your feedback by email - or via our facebook page - otherwise we look forward to seeing you face to face in a couple of weeks.

Regards

Shane, Deb, Patricia and Joanne
