"I work at a garden center near the Burrard Bridge downtown. I was wondering if people would find it useful if our store sold a few beekeeping items... I was thinking mostly pollen patties. I know for myself it's quite hard to get out to…"
In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
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 find urban agriculture an exciting prospect to bring people together and create stronger local communities and economies. Similarly, enjoying that food and other locally sourced food together, potluck style, would be amazing. Improving community bonds through the arts and various celebrations and free events is also an exciting prospect
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!)
Sure, I'm not sure what working groups you have.
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?
No plastic bags.
An increase in farmers markets and locally produced food at produce stands.
A reduction in the price of rent.
Even more community gardens.
More beekeepers and flowers for bees
