In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
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...
Music, permaculture, urban renewal as art, community building.
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?
I'd like to see a city built for people rather than automobiles, with the artistic peace of mind that travel within different communities is supposed to entail. I believe that the way to lose our dependence on big oil transit is by creating smaller communities and promote community creative difference.
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.

The seed exchange/sharing event will likely be the in the afternoon of the 19th (Saturday), or evening of the 21st (Monday) or 22nd (Tuesday). We are still trying to nail down a venue.
Finding places to meet is our perennial challenge. Community centres charge hundreds of dollars to book a space, and we are trying to increase our connections to churches and other public spaces. We'll know in a few days, and are likely to repeat the event in early April. We have seeds-aplenty to share, and planting season is approaching.
Welcome to the Main Street Neighbourhood. We've gots lots coming up that should interest you.
We are in the midst of a multi-session visioning of what we want our local neighbourhood(s) to look like, what assets and connections we need, and how to get there. We have invited Portland's City Repair founder Mark Lakeman to lead us at the end of this month in a guerilla planning exercise to reconfigure our built environment through art.
We are also going to host a massive seed sharing session this month in case you are interested in growing food inside or out this spring and summer. We will have free pots and maybe soil to share as well. We are going to grow more food in Vancouver this summer than ever before, and share it widely.
Join us in anything and everything, and consider organizing something of your own. Either tell us about it in advance, or just post it here on the site and invite the world!
