Permaculture Village

Transition is based on, and inspired by,  Permaculture principles. Permaculture is permanent agriculture and permanent culture. We will be approaching 'creating sustainable habitat' in many different ways: regular design & demonstration projects; Social permaculture; workshops. Permablitzes, Blitzes or Permaculture Energy Transfer or Pet Day are days that we go on site collectively create systems which cycle energy toward win win win economy. Food forests provide abundant gardens and parks…See More

gardening, urban farming, permaculture, education, learning, hands-on experience, building, sustainability
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 interested in any groups that educate in gardening, urban farming and permaculture. I like hands-on projects, and don't mind getting my hands dirty, so long as it's worth the effort then it should be fun! I can get creative but I'm also very organized; a team-player who is open to sharing ideas.
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?
Wider public knowledge of how we really recycle in this city (ie what goes on after those bins are emptied) that can help us really visualize for ourselves how we can implement better consumption practices.
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.
