Village Vancouver

Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities

Interested in Meeting other Beekeepers in your Village ?

It would be good if during the fall/winter months we could figure out which villages our beekeeper members live in.  We have one of the largest membership groups -- 96 as of Nov.5/11.

Then we could possibly form smaller sub-groups to lend support to our neighbors and possibly collaborate to purchase a honey extractor for each village (through a Neighborhood Small Grant). This would need to be done in the early spring.

So, if you're interested, would you post which village you live here ? If you are not interested in my idea, please also let me know.

Great Idea! I'm in Mount Pleasant, which falls under Main street Village. I love the idea of buying extractors for each group!
