I think I discovered the Transition Town movement through reading Small is Beautiful, or maybe it was while I was living in New Zealand…I’m not sure. Vancouver, BC’s community site Village Vancouver is a really helpful resource, and has helped get the Underground Market in Vancouver going. Check out the site as there is also an alternative currency forming as well as a large bee community, backyard chickens…foraging…you name it. Check it out and get involved. I have also been following NZ’s TT movement from afar, check out this website to find out more about getting involved in New Zealand. The following article gives some interesting history and present day progress reports on the original Transition Town, Totnes in UK. Please read the full article here, as I have only pulled out a few of my favorite paragraphs.
