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...
All the above. Im particularly interested in permaculture and community gardens.
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!)
Anywhere along the skytrain area. I m interested mostly in permaculture, food systems, beekeeping, clay, natural building, food foraging.
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?
Im creating a permaculture garden at 22nd st stn with other members of the community

Hey Athenaise,

I wanted to send a huge thank you for making out to the meeting on Wednesday, it was a pleasure to meet you, and I hope we can stay in touch, sounds like you are already doing some amazing transition work.

I know this is last minute, but the local paper is trying to do a story on this group, and wants to do a photo tomorrow (Saturday Dec. 17) at 11:00am.

I was wondering if you may be available, we are going to do it at my house in North Burnaby. Let me know if you can make it and I'll send the address.

Thanks again, lets talk soon.

Hi Athenaise, the site for the food forest is at St Mary's Church in Sapperton. It' part of a small community garden that was established on site about 2 years ago. this summer the gardeners held a food forest work shop and did some initial prepwork on site. Over the winter we are looking for people with a keen interest to get involved in creating an initial planting plan and then get to work with planting it up in the early spring. Hope you are interested.
