Hey Neil,

Thanks for joining us!  So glad you are looking to get involved!  You should have just got a LONG update from me as to what is going on with Village Burnaby, certainly Community Gardens are a big priority for us, and I am really excited to hear you are working on some awesome (really awesome!) stuff. 

Lets chat soon, be happy to meet for coffee, maybe you can join our activists group, or just make it out to the next potluck in March.

Look forward to meeting you and hearing more about your projects!

Hey All,

Just joined and looking to get involved whenever I can :)  Would love to meet some local green thumbs / sustainable living enthusiasts.  I just moved into Burnaby (Edmonds area) in September and have some pretty ambitious goals of getting a rooftop patio garden going this year.  Would also love to find out about / get involved with community gardening.  Looking forward to attending / hosting potlucks in the future.  Definitely interested in learning as much as I can from Y'all, so just let me know the best way to get involved :)

Hey Mahjabeen,

Thanks for the note, sorry you can't make it.  Now that things have settled down for me would love to sit down and chat about some stuff if you have the time.  Let me know what might work for you -, we will be doing some stuff on weekends coming up soon, and I look forward to having you involved then as well!

Hi all,

I got the note about the location for this Wednesday's get together and I SO want to be there but sadly I can't make it. If you have anything on Friday nights or the weekends, I'm going to try my best to  make it. I want to be involved in garden initiatives a lot in Burnaby, particularly community ones. ... I wish I could make it. A good grand time and love to take part in the near future.
