Village garden plot at Cottonwood Community Garden - looking for a couple additional gardeners

 

Village has a new garden plot at Cottonwood Community Garden in Strathcona, and we're looking for a couple additional Villagers to garden collaboratively. Cost is $5/year person, there's a 4 hr/month per plot work requirement at monthly garden work parties (per plot, not per person, next work party is Nov 24), and an orientation for new members.

The plot will also be used to save seeds for our seed libraries and seed projects.

If you're interested or have questions: Ross at ross@villagevancouver.ca or VVcottonwoodgarden@villagevancouver.ca.

If Transition Strathcona would like to have any information at Eco-Dreaming Vancouver let me know (or drop it off at the VV table).

Cheers,

Ross

Just saw this via Chris Thoreau...

Hi Everyone, 

If anyone is looking for some potential growing space in the Strathcona area, I have just been contacted by someone with some land.  The yard is about 500 square feet.

If you are interested you can email Christopher directly at: chris.ong@ubc.ca
Cheers,
Ross

Thought we'd mention that the Feb e-calendar is going out in the next day or two and if you decide on a date for your next gathering we can can include it. (A couple are looking good in the doodle so far, so perhaps you're getting close?)

Here's the link to the Collective meeting in Events.

The posting will archive after today (i.e. won't be visible on the events page) but you can use the link to see it at any time.

Thanks for hosting and posting Alexis!

Cheers,

Ross

Everyone should have received an email regarding the possibility of having another Strathcona gathering to follow up on our visioning exercise and translate that into a sort of action plan?

Here is a doodle poll so we can synchronize our busy schedules:

I've posted the Visioning exercise from Monday's meeting as a Discussions.  I hope that those who were not able to attend (and those who were there) feel free to add more ideas, skills, resources to the list!

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.

74 discussions

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.

6 discussions

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. This category is for all things relating to shelter, housing, affordable housing, homes, renewable heating systems, green buildings, heritage, and our built environment in general.
