Transition Towns at the Big Pineapple

Since the Big Pineapple (an iconic Sunshine Coast landmark) has reopened and in undergoing a massive revitalisation project, Transition Town Nambour has taken on the job of setting up a market stall there every Saturday morning to spread the Transition Town love!

It's the perfect place for people to gather for an informal chat and catch up.

If you live on the coast or are visiting the Sunshine Coast and would like to find out about Transition Town happenings in the region, drop in and say hello.

Latest update

Long time no post - apologies for that, but still plenty happening with Transition Towns around the place.

The Sunshine Coast Energy Descent Action Plan has made it as part of Council's Energy Transition project and will play an ongoing role there. Transition Town Eudlo is going strong with plenty of activities and community events happening.

More councils are starting to enquire about Transition Towns and their role in relocalising communities, particularly food systems. Together with permaculture design training, there are plenty of new innovative solutions starting to arise.

Keep an eye out for local Transition Town events in your area, or contact us direct and we'll see what we can do to help organise something.

Permaculture Pathways also offers Transition Town training - visit the site here.
