Transition The Grove's Resilience Award 2017
Deep long-term connection to this place
The $1000 Award is to acknowledge some of our locals, and say "What these people are doing here really matters!"
Nominate a local you know about?(You can nominate yourself, and help to complete the form is available if needed)
This is the 4th year the Resilience Award has been offered.
- In 2014 the Award was given to The Hills Organic Community Garden Inc for local food-growing
- In 2015 the Award was shared between 3 local groups : Wahminda Grove Bushcare Group, Northside Fitness, and Strong People Stay Young for their contribution to sustainable recreation locally
- In 2016 the Award was shared between the Asthma Foundation Op Shop's 24 workers and volunteers in Mitchelton, and Tony Smith of A1 Mower Repairs and Marine for their contributions to keeping non-renewable resources locally.
- Who will it be in 2017?
This year the Award is on the theme of deep local connection to place and the community here. We are looking for locals who are already deeply adapted and connected within this place. They do not need to be heroes or high-profile leaders. We are looking for those long-term residents who have settled into belonging here in a sustainable way.
'Local' for us is along Kedron Brook. It is the suburbs of Upper Kedron, Ferny Grove, Ferny Hills, Arana Hills, Everton Hills, Keperra/Grovely, Everton Park, Mitchelton, Enoggera and Gaythorne.
Applications close: Sunday 31 July 2017. Download nomination form
The Award is given at Transition The Grove Inc's Award's Night Dinner on Friday 15th September 2017.

What values do we share as members of a Transition Town? How do we put them into practice?
We're here to facilitate a grassroots, bottom-up local community approach to making this place an abundant, resilient, future-focused place to live. We are very aware of the global challenges to the future of humanity and civilization, but see hope and opportunity for the future in developing a strongly self-aware local community harnessing ways to live here elegantly and independently with a tiny carbon footprint.
We encourage you to share your visions and invite us to be part of implementing your ideas for our local future. Explore this website for help to start, then become one of the locals who are part of making it happen.
