Event Description

Bring something yummy to share!

Let's talk about our village. What do you like about it? What's working? What's not working? What would you like to see us doing in the coming year?

We can count potlucks, dropin spaghetti nights, movie nights, soup 'n shares, work parties, lots of food & other workshops, visioning our neighbourhood village together, and a Permaculture blitz among our activities.

We've canned, gardened, and swapped seeds together, helped organize Kits Car Free Day block parties, gone to the Fireworks and down to Portland to help at the Village Building Convergence, celebrated the Plough Day farm holiday, partnered to promote more composting in the neighbourhood, co-hosted eco-arts activities, created or helped create a food forest and two community collaborative gardens, and co-organized a Vancouver Council Candidates meeting.

We have a fledgling canning group and a new seed library/seed saving group starting. Several members have expressed interest in starting a soft plastics recycling geoup/depot, and there's a Village Slow Food/Slow Everything gathering coming up on Terra Madre Slow Food Day on the 10th, and a Dropin Spaghetti Night on the 28th.

A number of members keep bees and chickens, another tends an herb garden in a traffic circle, and, pending finding a location or two, there's some money to create another Permaculture food forest and to build a cob bench (and bulletin board/book nook?). There are proposals for new community gardens being put forward, and individually and collectively, we're engaged in sustainable, community building activities in many other ways as well.

In other words, lots going on.

What are you interested in doing in 2012?
