In the July/August issue of Briarpatch Magazine, I was featured as one of the contributors explaining how the Trasition Initiative is one solution. The article outlines lots of other cool community initiatives taking place elsewhere. The link to the archived article is below :)
Hi, Dalia - We met at Ross' for a potluck last summer. Are you still interested.? And... I'm trying to find not only a host for November, but Petra has come down with the flu and can't host this coming Sunday - Oct 17. I think you live in community alternatives... do they have a common room? could you host for either of these?
Hi, We're going to have another Kitsilano Village potluck on Sunday, July 11 5-8pm. Location tba - might be a picnic. Stay tuned to Kitsilano Village Group for details. (If you're not a member of Kitsilano Village group, do join so you're in the loop. Mary email@example.com
I read your piece on Transition Towns in Briarpatch when it first came out and enjoyed it. At the time, you mentioned that there was just one official
initiative; now there are 13. VV goes back to early 2008 ('07 if you count the "thinking/designing stage"), but we took our time in applying for official status. (Had we applied right away, I think we would've been the 1st or 2nd initiative.)
Did you see that KIts Transition Village is having a neighbourhood potluck
on the 11th? Details on our page. Hope you can make it!
Please join the Kitsilano Village group under "Villages" at the top menu - I'm eager to get a dozen or so of us there and then see if we might plan some events to connect face-to-face.
