Welcome to Transition Town Peterborough. We're glad you stopped by.
Transition Town Peterborough is a volunteer, non-profit organization founded in 2007. Our mission is: to adapt to the effects of climate change in Peterborough City-County, Hiawatha First Nation & Curve Lake First Nation.
On this page you can see some of the many initiatives we are involved in: the Greenzine, Local Food Month, Purple Onion Festival, Kawartha Loon and much more!
TTP is a platform for people like YOU to share ideas, practices, knowledge and passion. We encourage you to join us as we create a community rooted in environmental and economic resilience.
We are excited to announce that we are proceeding to plan and develop the 2022 Purple Onion Festival for Sunday September 25, 2022. The POF Festival is community focused on the celebration of the security of life essentials, including food, water, energy, culture & wellness in response to the Climate Crisis Long Emergency.
The Kawartha Loon Local Currency is the official currency of the festival as a demonstration of economic localization.
Further we are pleased to have Guenther Schubert returning as Host Chef of the Taste of the Kawarthas Food Tent.

It embraces the Transition Towns Model with permaculture as its operating system. It further develops The 4E's Framework of Energy, Economics, Environment, and Equity ( both social and economic) focused on life essentials, all directed towards building more resilient communities. The book finishes with a number of permaculture regenerative systems including the Transitions Neighbourhoods Project designed to enhance and empower us to build our local communities for life in the Climate Crisis Long Emergency."
