Transition Cafe

We are so excited! We are about to launch Wellington's first 'koha cafe' - from 2 May 2011 the Alicetown Community Centre (home to Transition Town Lower Hutt) will be transformed into a place of socializing, sharing, fun and learning. Every Tuesday (10 am - 2 pm) we will gather to share delicious home made food, tea, coffee and produce (all donation only - give what you can, give what you want, give what you feel is right) and have an excellent time together! » Read more

Skilling up for Powerdown

Skilling up for Powerdown is a course based on Rob Hopkins' successful UK model, but adapted to the NZ context. It will launch on Oct 7 at the Transition Centre in Alicetown - and hopefully spread from there on to other dates, locations and venues. It's a 9 week course, 7.30 - 9.30 pm at Alictown Transition Centre. See the attached brochure for any more details! To register, ring Natalie 04 5769596.
