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...
Growing and teaching others how to grow beautiful food plants as part of urban landscapes sustainably, urban agriculture, container planting, food security, increasing bio-diversity in our plantscapes and landscapes, small gardens, small spaces.
Having fun while saving the world one brick at a time.
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!)
Not sure yet which way to go.I am new to Vancouver. I just graduated from Kwantlen School of Horticulture in May. I can grow plants of all kinds just about anywhere. I was in office admin for many years in njon-prof and corporate, so know the red tape routes well. I love to grow and design plants in containers. My specialty is greenhouse and nursery.
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?
Corporate involvement and engagement in the community relating to food growing and environmental stewardship. Affordable housing, buy local.
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
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.
I am new to Vancouver and need to network and meet people who are also passionate about growing food sustainably in urban environments and sharing to enlightene people about how easy and wonderful it is to grow your own.
It's important to increase bio-diversity in the urban landscape and environment as a whole, we need to do more.
I would like to see more corporate accountability to communities and engagement.
Show people how to be more responsible with water.
