Concerned about a sustainable future ?
So are the people who make up transition hope valley. We are broadly based on the Transition Towns concept which will help to make the Hope Valley a more sustainable, self-sufficient and resilient community through events, workshops, re-skilling and raising awareness of local issues.
Since its inception in 2009, transition hope valley has been involved with a number of initiatives within the region, together which have brought together a wide range of people with a common aim, to develop a market and an interest in locally grown food and products.
