Transition Adelaide Hills (TAH) formed in 2009 to help our region move towards a more resilient and sustainable future. We are an active group of local people focussed on grassroots, community solutions.

We acknowledge the Peramangk people, traditional custodians of this land for many thousands of years.

The initiating groups, Adelaide Hills Climate Action Group (www.adelaidehillsclimateaction.org) and Adelaide Hills Sustainable Communities, have hosted various film and discussion nights and taken stalls into local fairs to promote awareness of climate change and related sustainability issues. Transition Adelaide Hills has continued hosting these events and supporting, initiating and/or promoting other local community projects.

The Adelaide Hills Community Garden – formed to promote organic, biodynamic, permacultural and waterwise food gardening and a venue for sharing skills and fun – is now merging with The Old School Community Garden in Stirling. For more information visit www.facebook.com/adelaidehillscommunitygarden or email: oldschoolgarden@nullgmail.com

The Hills Electric Bike Project (www.facebook.com/hillselectricbikeproject) is designed to make cycling accessible to hills-dwellers through providing short-term loans of electric bike conversion kits to the members of the community. By showcasing this technology we hope to expose the Hills community to the possibilities of power-assisted cycling, and promote cycling as a form of transport.

Adelaide Hills Refashioning Group meets regularly, sharing skills in refashioning clothes, repurposing everyday items and creating jewellery. For more details email Anne : Transitionadelaidehills@nullgmail.com

Adelaide Hills Produce Swap meets at The Table Restaurant, 2/120 Mount Barker Road, Stirling. A monthly venue where like-minded people can have a chat over a cuppa, share organic produce and exchange tips on growing and cooking. See www.facebook.com/AdelaideHillsProduceSwap
