Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
Grandview-Woodland
Please tell us which areas of Transition interest you. For example: growing more food/urban agriculture, relocalizing our economy/local currency, Permaculture, transit, energy efficient buildings, the arts, urban homesteading, preserving seed diversity, placemaking, potlucks, outreach, organizing events, community-building, having fun while saving the world, or...
I'm really interested in urban agriculture and growing food within the community for the community. I want to grow food as a full time job as well as engage with and educate youth on the possibility of growing healthy, organic food within city limits.
I'm interested in all things to do with sustainable living, including community building and relocalizing economy. I feel that we've become so disconnected from our neighbours and community, and through global markets those that provide us with our livelihoods. We need to turn things around in order to have an enjoyable and healthy planet for the next generations!
There's a saying that "Transition is not a spectator sport". It's true! Village Vancouver runs on people power, and engaging in activities and projects together helps us accomplish more. Which groups, networks, neighbourhood villages, or projects do you think you might be interested in getting involved with? And what knowledge, skills, resources or other assets can you bring to the mix? (Don't be bashful!)
definitely! particularly urban agriculture, youth engagement, community building, a celebration of the city! and other things I can't think of right now...
What would you like to see improved in Vancouver or in your community regarding sustainability or resiliency? Do you have an idea for a new Transition project or activity?
- support organic locally-grown food and healthier food choices
- improve food security
- support neighbourhood networks
- move away from auto transportation, with emphasis on public transportation and reduced workplace commuting
- decreased imports, ie. shutting down Delta Port, revitalizing local production
- income equality and eradication of poverty
I agree to read and abide by the Site Guidelines under the About tab on the navigation bar, remaining respectful in all communications on this web site.
