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...
recycling, gardening, bicycling, music & arts, go, community building, political work, music
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!)
gardening, music & arts
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?

Good, you got me looking at this site again. I think the way I will engage is with the real people I have met first. I know it is probably a really efficient way to organize and communicate, but I don't want to spend too much time in front of a computer... I heard of a drinking water benefit for Nicaragua coming in January and I am looking for water songs with the possiblilty of performing. Any thoughts?
Hi Earle, glad to see you are on board with VV. I was involved in the formation of the group but these days my focus has shifted north to Cortes Island... www.may-s-garden.blogspot.com. However, I'm in town for the winter and looking for gigs... hint hint. Andy
Hey Earle Peach - yah it's me from misery on Main - i heard a lot about you too, from all sorts of people. How are you? Maybe we'll get to meet at Misery on Main, it will be starting up again in the fall. Please say hi to Barbra from me! All the best.
