Chicken runs, veggie patches, worm farms, compost systems, cycle commuting and native gardens will all be on show in Transition Town Mount Hawthorn’s first ever Urban Sustainability Walk (a Jane's Walk event), starting at 4pm from Castellorizian House and finishing back at the starting point at around 5.30pm. 

Health chickens in the suburbs
Grow your own fruit and vegies
Stay afterwards for a Community Connect Dinner (a no waste event) where you will meet more like-minded locals and share a "pot luck" dinner with new friends.  Bring a dish along to share with other locals, and see how you might get involved in creating a more sustainable urban environment (for example, we have people interested in composting, fruit and vegetable gardening, cycle commuting, sewing, seed saving, natural cleaning products, native gardens, urban chickens, and much more).

Share a meal with like-minded locals
After dinner, stay and watch a short movie (1 hour duration) about the world-side movement of Transition Towns. "In Transition 2.0" is the new film from Transition Network, capturing inspiring stories of Transition initiatives around the world, responding to uncertain times with creativity, solutions and 'engaged optimism'.
