about our village

Welcome

Based in Wallan, a semi-rural town on the urban fringe north of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Transition Village Wallan is a local non-profit organisation working towards whole community change to support a safe, sustainable and connected way of life for all members of our community.

Transition Village Wallan is embarking on a project to build an accomodation village utilising sustainable living and design practices, for people experiencing (or at risk of) homelessness in and around Wallan.

PLAN AND DESIGN

We are finalizing the Village design and supporting documents for inclusion in the Planning Permit Application which will be lodged with Mitchell Shire Council in January 2022. We are also talking with companies with a view to selecting one as our building supplier.

 

BUILD the village

TVW will use pre-fabricated buildings in the Village. We will still have a great variety of  volunteer roles from admin to garden so please reach out if you can assist. 

CHANGE LIVES

Creating positive change through opportunity. We all need to have the basic building blocks of human needs to live a fulfilling and compassionate life.
