Hi Ann, Thank you for reaching out to me when I joined Village Vancouver! It turned into a very busy school term so I didn't have a chance to reply. I am very interested in Emergency Preparedness at a neighbourhood level. I have just moved to a new community near Fraser + Broadway and would like to get neighbours together to make emergency kits/make emergency plans. I am part of a student group participating in a CommUnity Resilience design challenge by Engineers for a Sustainable World. I will also be planning some workshops for the Main Street Village beginning in February and would like to incorporate resilience as a theme, encouraging people to connect with each other, plan, share skills etc... I would love to hear more about what you do! I am home for the holidays until Dec 31st but am reachable here via message, or by email. Cheers, Adele
Sure I can help with the website transition. Over the summer my circumstances will be changing a lot and at short notice, it might be best to contact me as and when you need me with smaller specific tasks, and if I'm free at the time I can help.
Hi Ann, Thanks for connecting. I missed the Rec Centre workshop as I wasn't feeling well last Sat. But I'm scheduled to attend the Developing Personal Preparedness Programs - EM931 on October 19 at JIBC. My plan is incorporating this training into my Village Surrey work, to reach communities and through this, talk a bit about resiliance in general, but we are just starting so it may take some time... I live in Cloverdale...
Thanks for the welcome and info on the Dunbar Village group. We moved from Ladner and are so pleased with Dunbar/Southlands community and all the trails, horses, birds, bees, and chicken! Our first recon of the neighbourhood involved canoeing down the Fraser from our backyard to Richmond - we loved it.
Looking very forward to meeting you and others in community.
I am hoping to move to that area! I am doing raised garden beds, potted crops, but am looking forward to farming in my native BC!
I want chickens (had them as a child but embarking on my own coop now)...so will be looking for contacts.
I found VV by searching for info on chickens in Vancouver, I am excited to join this group!
Thanks for the welcome. I joined the Dunbar Village group. Attened the lecture tonight at Robson Square on Climate Change, very engaging. Not sure if the live streaming is available to watch again but worth a look if it is. I've plans already for Thursday, so will miss the film showing. Look forward to join in for other events. Robin
