Lantzville Transition Village Initiative Launched

Lantzville Transition Village initiative launched

 

 

About 20 Lantzville people turned out on October 26 at Pyramid Stables, to explore opportunities for Lantzville to become part of the worldwide Transition Town movement.

 

After a video about Transition actions and philosophy, several short presentations were made about projects which could be easily undertaken: organised sharing of garden surpluses; a butterfly friendly Lantzville; a workshop series on how to use social media; and a personal project involving growing food as therapy for people with depression.

 

Participants were impressed both by the philosophy of just getting together to do projects and with some of the ideas and activities already under way.

Comments included wanting to do more in Lantzville, whether shopping, work or leisure activities. All were agreed that Lantzville would benefit from more neighbourly activities and that this would contribute to a growing sense of community.

 

We invite you all to a series of informal meetings which have been arranged for Saturdays, Nov. 23, Dec. 14 and Jan. 25 at 2:30 at Riso’s.

Come and have a cup of fantastic coffee and have a chat with some our your community members.

 

On another note we are now officially registered with the Transition network as Lantzville Transition Initiative and have a draft logo.
