Transition Town Motueka

Transition Town Motueka is moving towards a lower energy lifestyle by re-localising our community, making it resilient and truly sustainable. The community already has many projects underway, like a community lending program, a local Sunday market, and a program to install gardens in several local households. People are launching even more projects, workshops, skills sharing, and celebrations.

There are several working groups in areas such as food, transport, economics and business, etc. networking within the community. These groups are working on ideas in more detail allowing everyone to gather information and participate in coming up with solutions. The outcome of these groups will ultimately form the backbone of Motueka's Energy Decent Action Plan (EDAP). We are also coordinating with Transition Nelson and Transition Town Mapua to create a cohesive Nelson-Tasman approach within our region. Feel free to join in!

We have the following sub groups: Biocapacity, Business & Economics, Creations, Education, Energy, Food, Government Liasons, Heart & Soul, Transport.

We are currently working on a Food Map for Motueka. If you know of local producers who are willing to sell from their farm, please let us know their name, address and products so we can enter them on the map. Yourselves included, of course.

If you have any queries or would like to be added to our database so we can keep you informed with developments and up coming events, contact:
