SouthEast False Creek
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...
growing food in a community garden. I would like t sign up for McBride Community Garden as I live right beside it.
Thank you
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!)
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?
I am a retired RN and a meditation teacher. I am interested in gardening projects for food and for beauty ie flowers and in having a balance of the elements in our city. I have felt strongly that we should have public firepits for the winter months when the water element and the greyness overshadows and may depress people's moods. I also have asked city hall for more aquatic centres for the health and wellbeing mental and physical of our citizens. we really should have an aquatic centlre with pool sauna , hot tubs in False Creek, Olympic Village. It is glaringly obvious this is a missing necessity.
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.
Don't feel like answering all the questions now? No worries, just tell us briefly why you're interested in joining at this time, and you can come back and update your profile later.
. A group working together to improve quality of life has the power to make good things happen . We are all creative beings and if we put our creativity together we can do amazing things. I feel the need to deepen my relationship with this community now that I have raised my children and retired from nursing. I would like to focus on gardening and creating places of silence and refuge. Zen like spaces that feed and restore the soul.
