Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
Mount Pleasant
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...
urban agriculture, permaculture (planting, seed collecting, composting), the arts, relocalizing our economy, canning, bee keeping, waste reduction
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!)
if it fits, yes!
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?
rain water collection & compost bins provided to each household, free re-use it drop off/pick up centers, awareness on eliminating waste - garbage disposal is an illusion!
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.

Hi Angela


Great. Look forward to doing some stuff together. Are you on for the permaculture makeover? I can't remember if I saw your name on the list, and Julia's been organizing.


Have a great holiday. Ann
