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!

Cheers,

Matthew

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 :)

Cheers,
Neil

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 - mjfstuart@gmail.com, 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.

Regards,

Mehjabeen

Hey all,

I am sorry for leaving everyone hanging on meeting dates and times for the next Village meeting.  I think we discussed the Third Wednesday of every month, but that is coming up too quick for me to promote again, so I am going to push the Village Burnaby meeting to Wednesday January 25th, 2011 again at Bonsor Recreation Centre (unless plans change).  I have created an event on the front page, and it would be great if people could attend.  I would like to start talking about a direction for the group, so please bring your ideas.  I would also like to talk about selecting a Board of Directors for the group so we can make planning simple and easy.

Some ideas I / other folks have:

- Car Free Days

- Community Gardens

- Community Currency

- Community Food Hub (a place to process food, distribute CSA's / good food, etc).

- Backyard Garden Sharing

Please bring your ideas with you when you come, lets get moving!

Yo! If Burnaby folks want to meet in Jan, please lets talk about it... I can host it at my house if there are not too many people (fairly small living room!) -  I am super excited about planning out some great stuff! (BTW: Im the woman with the weird bangs at the meeting at Bonsor who was talking about the 22nd stn community garden) :)

Discussion Forum

Food

Local, organic, rural, and/or urban, food production is a mainstay of life, and doing it well leads to wellness. From farm to kitchen, discussions relating to food--and the community arising around it--belong here.

Transportation

If you have to leave your village, how will you get where you want to go? By car? Preferably not, both for your wallet and the earth’s sake. This category is for all discussions relating to how we all get around.

Housing

A human right? After food, most feel shelter is the most important necessity. A place of shelter is also the start of a community.
