In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
Oakridge
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...
food security/urban gardening for food, community-building, aquaponics
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!)
I'm a novice vegetable gardener but recently started a backyard aquaponics system. I enjoy cooking though not a good cook and am involved with our faith community in launching and getting others involved in community meals. I may have access to our church kitchen to cook community meals but am open to inviting others into our home to cook/eat together.
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 would like to encourage more in our neighbourhood to grow their own food. I would also like to grow our "share" garden in front of our house and encourage others to do the same. We've setup a 4 x 10 garden box in our front yard to grow vegetables for our neighbours to harvest themselves.
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.
Yes
