Welcome to Transition Town Peterborough
Who Are We?
Transition Town Peterborough (TTP) is an all volunteer, non-profit organization using economic localization to reduce our community-wide dependence on fossil fuels while increasing local community resilience and self-sufficiency in food, water, energy, culture and wellness. With a focus on community building, TTP is made possible by ordinary citizens working toward positive change. It is shaped and guided by all who are able to participate, in whatever capacity they can.

25% Shift to Local Food Research
Part One of this study is identified the economic impact, in terms of community wealth creation, that can be achieved by a shift of 25% of our local food expenditures from 5% to 30% in a 10-year time frame. It estimates this impact to be over $400M annually within 10 years. Part Two of the study is underway to identify the job creation potential of such an impact.
Local food, for this study, is considered to be food sourced in the City and County of Peterborough. No attempt is being made to identify the how and the cost of effecting the 25% shift.
