My guest for this episode is Rob Hopkins the creator of the idea of Transition Towns, a way for us to move from oil dependency to local resilience. That lead to his writing The Transition Handbook, something every permaculture practitioner should have in their library and which serves as a good introduction, along with Toby Hemenway’s The Permaculture City, to look at how we can move from the landscape to the people space.
Find out more about Rob and his work at TransitionNetwork.org and the other resources below.
If you are interested in starting your own transition town or want more information on the movement, let me know.
