Hi everyone, my lovely red bike with the huge black basket got stolen on Monday, April 28 from my yard near Commercial Drive.
Please keep your eyes peeled! It's a pretty distinctive looking bike, and my primary mode of transportation.
The potluck and chicken lesson were both lovely! Thank you Alyssa, Jason, and everyone who made the amazing food!
Rosie and Cookie were fabulous as well -- very chill about the mess of people in their coop! Glad to have a chance to interact with them.

HS GW Plant and Seed Exchange in April
Hey Grandview-Woodland! We are merging this event with your neighbourhood, and are currently inviting any GV members who are interested in planning to join in a meeting early next week to make it happen. Some details of the event may be altered depending on what people are most interested in. Please contact me or reply here if interested! Thanks!
Come join Hastings Sunrise neighbourhood for a seedy Saturday! We will create the beginning of a seed library, a seed bank, and we will make seedballs! Bring seeds to invest, share, trade or sell, and plants to exchange, or sell. Kids encouraged to attend! All are welcome.
We had a great Macy Monday event at the beginning of November and there are still plenty of places left for the next one on 5th December... Please come along to this free taster workshop inspired by the work of Joanna Macy! http://http://www.villagevancouver.ca/events/macy-monday-1
The new Vancouver Tool Library is opening close to our hood in just a couple of weeks, and I hope that many of us will support it and have great use for it in the time to come. I am on their mailing list and would like to share what I received today:
Hey, Tool Library Supporters!
Next meeting is set for April 14th at 6pm at Cabot's - the Event page has been changed accordingly. Please RSVP at http://www.villagevancouver.ca/events/grandviewwoodland-monthly-1.
Way to go Andrew! So glad that there will be a neighbourhood repair project in the hood! Keep us posted and best of luck.
Here is the image that accompanied the proposal - illustrating our proposal for some intersection repair (street mural, banners, public art etc.)
This is for illustrative purposes only. The idea is that the actual design will be prepared by residents of the surrounding blocks through a series of a few street gatherings/potlucks over the course of the spring and implemented this summer.
