Yes, this was way back in 2009, when Transition Darebin was just getting started – but what an inspiration.
By all accounts it was a great adventure, a lot of fun, and it elicited smiles and waves from amazed pedestrians and drivers. No doubt the house-warming party at the end added to the sense of camaraderie.
