Village Vancouver

Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities

Information

Permaculture Village

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.
