In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
Other (indicate below)
If you don't live in Vancouver or are in another neighbourhood or community we did not list, please tell us where home is.
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...
Transition may someday reach Critical Mass in BC, a new social, political, and green movement that generates results, not a lot of hot air....and carbon. It all is down to its grassroots origins, the level where the only real and lasting things have ever happened.
That said, everything in permaculture takes time. Consider the years or decades it will take just to rebuild the soil around my house (any house) to create a viable food garden. 100 years of lawn clippings, leaves, and deadfall were carted away. Pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and lead paint chips were its only inputs. It is no wonder nothing grew at first, or at least nothing edible.
I just joined your mailing list at Transition Comox Valley. I like your resources, and you might consider adding Bill McKibben's voice. Let's build a powerful movement across BC and enjoy each other's company in the process.
