Profile Information

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...
edible landscaping and veggie gardening, building a less-consumptive lifestyle so we can devote time and resources to the good stuff, music (especially singing), expanding people skills to build community.
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!)

Hey Cabot!  I am so glad you enjoyed the party and the evening with Nicole. Quite a woman... on a mission from god (from the Blues Brothers movie..).  Nice to see you at the Heinberg event too.  And thanks for the great strudel.. will get that one again.

Hi Cabot,

Just a heads up for Tuesday -- we're currently at 13 confirmed and 3 maybes (and I expect the numbers to rise).
