No doubt you are aware of
Climate Change.

Maybe you have heard of Peak Oil.

Perhaps you are worried about the economy.

But what can you do?


The pressures of Peak Oil, Climate Change, and Economic Crises will radically change the way we live.

Food, transport and energy costs are predicted to soar. Weather patterns will change. Humankind will face unprecedented challenges.

The impact will certainly be felt within the next 5 years.

While it means big changes in everyday life, it doesn’t mean doom and gloom.

Pioneering communities around the world are taking a creative grassroots approach: rebuilding communities, sharing ideas and skills, growing food locally and solving their own unique problems.

The Transition Towns movement is growing globally, in New Zealand, and in Timaru.

Check our website as the list is growing!

Timaru Famrers Market was born out of the Tranisiton Timaru movement and sits under the umbrella of Transition Timaru as one of it's many community projects.

What is a Transition Town?

Transition Towns are communities looking peak oil and climate change squarely in the eye. The movement began in England and is spreading across the world.

By unleashing the collective genius of our communities, we can drastically reduce carbon emissions, support our local economy, and thrive in the face of peak oil.
