"seems I'm out of luck in regards to child care for my 5 year daughter for tonight. I will enjoy reviewing your website and any other links you may forward. I think, Fairview needs a babysitting co-op!"

Hi! yes, I did the EYA beekeeping apprenticeship this past year and am looking for ways to put it into practice. I think I may be helping out with the bees at a local art & activism centre in east van, and anything else that comes up. That's so cool that you'll have bees moving in :)... definitely let me know if I can help in any way, I'm pretty passionate about it!

Maybe the evening of the 15th or 19th; not sure yet. Are you at Folk Fest? Maybe there? (VV has a booth.)

Hi Brian,

I saw you comment on Megan's page re: the 24th. Is this confirmed now? I can help with this. Yes, let's talk about what can be done. And about other ideas for advancing HS Village -- I think there's lots of people who will plug in if approached.

Since you have indicated Hastings-Sunrise as your neighbourhood location, I thought I would let you know that we are in the embryonic stages of creating a Hastings-Sunrise village and have set up a Village Group here at Village Vancouver to facilitate that process.

I am aware that there are lots of neighbourhood groups and activities already in place in Hastings Sunrise and hope that in some way a Hastings-Sunrise Village can help to provide some networking between groups rather than competing as another entity, but also can carry out activities that might be of interest to the other groups as well. Really, it's wide open as to what we do as a village entity... but we need participation to determine what that will be!

Please go over to the Groups page and go to the second page - there you will find Hastings Sunrise Village and can join up and participate in the discussion - and also feel free to post Hastings-Sunrise activities and events there for others to see.

Welcome, Brian!

As you can see, we are just beginning to build an on-line community for Village Vancouver, and organize our extensive activities more openly and collaboratively through this site. Please feel free to contribute to a discussion, attend or even enter a new event, join a working group, or even form a Village.

Hastings does not have a local village formed yet, but your ranks are growing with now 7 Village Vancouver members, including Amy, Emily, Jasmine, Jacqui, James, and Megan.

Meanwhile, come to any event posted on our Events page, connect with other Village Vancouver members, and see what you can learn and do.

Also, please update your home page ("My Page" on your navigation bar above) with some brief comments about your interests or a short bio. This will help us all connect with people with similar interests in sustainability, transition, or other activities.

I hope to see you at a city-wide VV event soon.


Village engages individuals, neighbourhoods & organizations to take actions that build sustainable communities & have fun doing it. Join us!
