Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities
Transition is based on, and inspired by, Permaculture principles. Permaculture is permanent agriculture and permanent culture. We will be approaching 'creating sustainable habitat' in many different ways: regular design & demonstration projects; Social permaculture; workshops. Permablitzes, Blitzes or Permaculture Energy Transfer or Pet Day are days that we go on site collectively create systems which cycle energy toward win win win economy. Food forests provide abundant gardens and parks for all, and structures are working in many ways, creating shade, capturing heat, collecting water. Together we will explore ecological urban and rural design.

I am searching for someone who could teach me how to prune my plum trees. I sort of know (like many of us I guess) - but I would like a truly experienced gardener (or pro) show me how. Am willing to pay if needed.
I also would love advice on growing figs, training a kiwi plant, debugging my young apple trees (yes yikes) and other misc. urban gardening questions.
Any pro gardening coaches out there???
Events at Nisga'a this weekend:
Kamloops and Franklin:
Building a Cob Oven!
Car Free Day on Main street was awesome! The whole intersection was Village! It was magical even, and a float went by saying next year - a parade! Let's do it! Duncan's chickens were there in a new house with cool shade coverings and word had it that Nate and Asia the beekeeper had her baby - a boy! Face painters were painting kids faces - all as dogs with their tougues hanging out - as it was a dog shop stall...so cute! Janine was holding down the centre with her Living Zero Waste display. I asked her if she got a grant...No she said, she just lives this way.
The intersection has a sense of place to it already. It had a flow as people moved up the street from 12th, a big rush of them would come as the light changed and then it would petre out and start again. I was handing out flyers from homesteaders emporium, which were these beautiful colourful flyers about how to make some thing - almost a workshop on a card, and it was like I was offering worms or jam and it worked, people would take them and then filter in and see the chickens and plant a sunflower, and see solar power and seedboxes! why dont we have Commercial car free day on a different day? many of our friends are over there having fun, but what Ross and us have started here is really becoming, and it is a niche, like a little nest of wonderment that I can't fully describe because i can't describe a look in peoples eyes, or the way they are all working together... well maybe I could, and I want you to go there too and see and be this becoming. They are going to paint the street near there. Check city commons, the Vancouver Tool Library's project and you can help paint too in July. There will be a week when everyone can go out and volunteer around the city to make 7 places where we can feel...a sense... of belonging?
