Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
Grandview-Woodland, Hastings-Sunrise
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...
relocalizing our economy, inner transition (work that reconnects type stuff)
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!)
Really want to get involved with work to relocalize the economy. Specifically interested in time banks. Back in the UK I managed a small 2.5 acre urban farm where I was also heavily involved with various community initiatives. I've done some Work that reconnects workshops and I am a trained counsellor.
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?
Time banks!
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.

Hi Heather,

Sunday afternoon's probably best. I'm just waiting to hear when a late morning meeting is over, and then we can figure out a time. Meet at Rhizome Cafe on Broadway?

Thanks,

Ross

Hi Heather,

Great. there are lots of ways to engage in VV. I'm going out of town on Tuesday for a couple weeks. Want to try to connect before then? This Friday isn't good, but others days are (including the holiday weekend).

Cheers,

Ross

Hi Heather,

 

Jordan here - I am your neighbour in Grandview-Woodland and, as Ross mentioned, I am working on Open Money initiatives with Village Vancouver. If you're interested in helping to spearhead something like a time bank here in Vancouver, I'd love to discuss with you. I'll be around until mid-September, then I'll be away for three weeks before returning again, so let me know if you'll be available sometime in the next couple of weeks.

 

Looking forward to meeting you,

Jordan

Hi Heather,

Welcome to Village Vancouver! I'm seeing your interest in Time Banks, and have passed your name along to Jordan Bober, who is spearheading our Community Currency project. (He also lives in Grandview Woodland village.)

It look like you've done a lot of interesting things. If you're interested, I'd like to get together for coffee/tea and discuss how you might get involved with VV.

Cheers,

Ross

Food

Local, organic, rural, and/or urban, food production is a mainstay of life, and doing it well leads to wellness. From farm to kitchen, discussions relating to food--and the community arising around it--belong here.

Transportation

If you have to leave your village, how will you get where you want to go? By car? Preferably not, both for your wallet and the earth’s sake. This category is for all discussions relating to how we all get around.

7 discussions

Housing

A human right? After food, most feel shelter is the most important necessity. A place of shelter is also the start of a community. This category is for all things relating to shelter, housing, affordable housing, homes, renewable heating systems, green buildings, heritage, and our built environment in general.
