Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
North Vancouver
If you don't live in Vancouver or are in another neighbourhood or community we did not list, please tell us where home is.
also live in Elphinstone a ferry ride north from Vancouver
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...
Permaculture
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 am a permaculture teacher running year long PDC's and 30 month Advanced Diploma courses. I have a PDC, Diploma and Masters Degree through Bill Mollison in Tasmania and have done advanced study with David Holmgren, Geoff Lawton, Robyn Francis, the Bullock Brothers, Tom Ward, Jude Hobbs, Robin Clayfield and Rosemary Morrow.
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?
More low cost permaculture courses and more locally written books on guilds, four season gardening and bioregionally specific transition strategies. Also a great Community Green Map with a comprehensive listing of local organic sustainable products and services available in each month would be epic!
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
