Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
Mount Pleasant
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, organic food growing, sustainable community development, creative collaboration.
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!)
Food growing, preserving, sustainable community building in the Mount Pleasant, Grandview and Strathcona Neighbourhoods.
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 diverse urban agriculture projects, and more land accessible for growing food - innovative models of growing.
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.

Was just given a green zebra coupon book by a fellow shopper whom I had met at A&N the week before. I had asked him just for his famous foods coupon but he gave me the whole book,Have long been planning to buy a bag of coconut,bucket of coconut oil bag of powdered milk a jug of Dr Bonner soap. Every winter i stock upon staples to last out the lean months until Easter if anyone wishes to add to this order we could divide a sack into4-5-6 4ljugs at cost price,a real saving as food prices have begun to skyrocket
