Nambour Community Garden-a real possibility
A community meeting will now be held on
Wednesday 20th October
at the
CWA Hall, Short Street, Nambour
at 7:00pm
Transition Town Nambour will be facilitating this meeting to help enable the project to become self propelling. Transition Town Nambour is a grass roots community group who are interested in supporting any positive action that helps mitigate the effects of Climate Change and Peak Oil (surging oil prices) on our community and which helps to knit community together.
A Community Garden has long been a desirable outcome for our hope to see Nambour much more self-reliant and self-sufficient. Community Gardens are brilliant 'whole community projects' and can really bring people of all ages and interests together for social network building and for teaching self-reliance skills.
The purpose of this meeting is to follow up the previous Transition meeting on 22nd September at while a slide presentation was made by Sharon Stott of Council and Penny Hegarty of the Nambour Gardening Club. A parcel of land which has recently been purchased by Council is to be made available to the community for a Community Garden. Such a project has been long sought after in Nambour and this is an opportunity to be seized.
Please bring your family, friends, and neighbours to show support.

See you there.....7pm on Wednesday 20th October at the CWA Hall, Short Street Nambour.
And don't forget the following Wednesday we have our talk on "Building Better Communities", same time, same place.

A Short Movie: A Thousand Suns
A Thousand Suns tells the story of the Gamo Highlands of the African Rift Valley and the unique worldview held by the people of the region. This isolated area has remained remarkably intact both biologically and culturally. It is one of the most densely populated rural regions of Africa yet its people have been farming sustainably for 10 000 years.
After the movie there will be a group discussion about how the movie's messages relate to food production and food security in the Nambour region.
Transition Town Nambour is part of a world wide, grass roots community movement that seeks to raise awareness and create positive outcomes to help mitigate the ongoing effects of Climate Change and Peak Oil within our local community.
Planning for a resilient future.....

Yandina Permaculture Garden Visit for TTN Supporters

Supporters of Transition Town Nambour enjoyed an instructive seed saving course given by Elizabeth Fekonia at the Yandian Permaculture Community Garden. Afterwards some 20 supporters gathered for lunch around the beautiful cob oven-hosted by Linda and Doug Mahoney from YP Garden- and roasted a wide range of different homemade pizzas in the cob oven. This was our first "hearts" (as in head, hands and hearts) event and it proved to be great fun. I hope others will join us on our next social and YP Garden intend to gather there monthly for their own meetings. Delicious!
