urban agriculture, transit, community building, affordable housing
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 already involved in urban agriculture as an experienced gardener in my own yard, and passing it on through Growing Eden (57th Ave. Farm), and in affordable housing through CALM (Community Advocates for Little Mountain). I'm a retired teacher, organized and project oriented, but I never have enough time for everything.!! For now I will just be an onlooker, and choose to get involved when I can.
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?
Sustainable renewable housing stock. I'd love to see Village Vancouver support the redevelopment of Little Mountain as a model of affordable, renewable, agriculturally productive urban housing.

Don't feel like answering all the questions now? No worries, just tell us briefly why you're interested in joining at this time, and you can come back and update your profile later.
Because I received the invitation! Also, I've attended several food production/preservation classes and like the people and ideas.

Local, organic, rural, and/or urban, food production is a mainstay of life, and doing it well leads to wellness. From farm to kitchen, discussions relating to food--and the community arising around it--belong here.
If you have to leave your village, how will you get where you want to go? By car? Preferably not, both for your wallet and the earth’s sake. This category is for all discussions relating to how we all get around.
A human right? After food, most feel shelter is the most important necessity. A place of shelter is also the start of a community. This category is for all things relating to shelter, housing, affordable housing, homes, renewable heating systems, green buildings, heritage, and our built environment in general.
