Grey Lynn 2030

I am community independent member of City Vision and stood at the Auckland Council elections in 2010 and 2013 with the support of Grey Lynn 2030: Transition Community Trust.  I was trustee until May 2016.

Grey Lynn 2030 is part of the international, grassroots Transition Towns movement. The goal of Transtion Towns is to bring people together to explore how we – as communities – can respond to the challenges and opportunities of climate change and peak oil. Transition Towns works on the belief that communities have within themselves the innovation and ingenuity to create positive solutions to the converging crises of our time. It encourages local communities to step into leadership positions.

Grey Lynn 2030 is a local response to these ideas. We are a participatory, community organisation promoting and engaging in building neighbourhood spirit and cooperation while working towards a vision of a positive, resilient, and sustainable community.

Grey Lynn 2030 and the transition town movement are not affiliated with any political party or religion.

Hi, It is always tricky to find NZ sources of legumes. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I used to get lentils from Milmore Downs but they don’t have any this year and I am also looking for chickpeas, beans, etc as well.

I suspect there may be an issue of economics not quite stacking up, so I’d also be willing to look at community supported agriculture. My transition town has a well-established purchasing group.

Many thanks, Heidi

FAMILY SEEKS USE OF LAND IN EXCHANGE FOR FRUIT AND VEG 

I am an experienced vegetable gardener looking for the use of about 2 acres within 1.5 hours of Dunedin, to create a small scale organic farm sufficient to feed up to 3 families all year round. 

In exchange, I propose to share the fresh healthy fruit, veg and meat with the landowner who would also benefit from the resulting improvement to their land.
