Transition Black Isle is part of an international network of Transistion communities working towards making the lives of their members more satisfying and sustainable in the face of resource depletion and climate change.

It's easy to think "What can we as individuals do in this situation when governments and corporations seem unwilling to put the well-being of the world before their selfish interests?"

But if we work together in communities on a local scale, we find it is possible to take positive, practical steps towards building a thriving Black Isle and world, and once we get invloved we find how satisfying and rewarding this can be.

Community Markets

There is a Community Market nearly every week in a different village on the Black Isle, selling local produce and crafts and offering the opportunity of a chat over refreshments provided to raise funds for local groups or charities.

Food and Growing

TBI has produced a comprehensive Growing Guide (still available) for the north of Scotland, run several series of 'Grow North' workshops on a range of growing topics, and bought an apple press, which is very popular for juice making in the autumn.
