Hi - my name is Renaee, I am a 53 year old stay-at-home-mum and Templestowe resident, pcitured here with my life partner Andrew and our child - Lee. We moved into the area about 5 years ago so Lee could attend Templestowe College. 

I retired from my job during the Pandemic in 2021 and now focus on growing food at home, simplifying my life as much as possible to save money, and giving thanks for the simple pleasures of life -  being close to the beautiful Birarung River, for the abundant wildlife and bushland of this area we live in and to have time and space to continue figuring out What-is-mine-to-do in a time of endings. Building this website and attempting to start a local resilience group is part of that process!

I also built a website (many years ago) for my partner who loves to review movies, and you can find that at movie-reviews.com.au.  We are all different and have different hobbies, our differences make the world interesting!

I have spent a lot of time processing and understanding Ecological Overshoot and Collapse in the past few years, and now my urge is to reach out and connect with others close by, with the hope that there may be others locally who are on the same page. 

If this is you - please be in touch on renaeech@gmail.com and let’s make a start on working toward Adaptation and Resilience together.
