Despite keeping up a regular change of cover photos, potential members to the Transition Nambucca Valley website have been reluctant to join. Someone asked what was expected of members. Nothing! You join because you want to make changes for the benefit of your community. You form groups with those who share your interests, or you just join to give moral support to the movers and shakers.


We welcome your input to this site, but please note that all Blogs are vetted by the site moderator.
