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...
urban agriculture, energy-efficient, green and natural buildings, permaculture, transit, relocalization.
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!)

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?
Reducing consumption, maybe increase in service-based businesses. More lifecycle analysis.

Welcome to Main Street Neighbourhood!

We are meeting next at Little Mountain Neighbourhood House for a potluck, seed sharing, and short movie night on Tuesday evening April 5.  This is right next to the library near 24th Avenue on Main Street.  Please stop in for some free seeds to sow in your garden or inside, or come for the entire event, from 6:00 to 8:30.  

We are organizing a number of events this summer, such as Car Free Day on Main Street on June 19.  We'll be erecting an entire sustainable village, with chickens, bees, a composter, rain barrel, solar panels, etc.  We'll need volunteers to help make it a great place to visit for everyone.  

Meanwhile, we are busy growing lots of food in the city and are creating a roving food market (a small farmer's market) to distribute this zero-mile food to every neighbourhood in Vancouver, by bicycle.

There is lots to do, and lots of fun people to do it with.

Whatever you'd like to do, we'll help to make it happen.

Randy

Organizer, Main Street Neighbourhood
