Permaculture and Transition

Permaculture and Transition Towns with Alan Charlton

The idea of Transition Towns was developed by Rob Hopkins who was inspired by studying permaculture.

Transition means turning away from a world that is driven by fossil fuels, and developing more resilient communities. Permaculture design helps us to manage confusing situations and then make enough sense of them to make the changes that will bring about a more gentle future.

Our Northern School course has provided support and guidance to several Transition groups with their projects - it is the ultimate in “Transition Training”.
