We are pleased to confirm dates for the Transition Walks on Fridays, which will be resuming in May.
If you are local, this is a great way to get to know the town better and to learn about all the other projects that are going on. If you are planning to visit Totnes on a Transition quest, we strongly advise planning your visit around one of these. Friday is market day in Totnes so make sure you give yourself time in the morning to explore.

"the Transition tour ... was extremely interesting and a great way to learn how people are putting ideas into practice in the field of sustainability. It complemented our week's activities at Schumacher very well, taking us into the 'real' world and seeing community level action." Masters student, Ashridge Business School.
