Join VV's Energy Network to help pare our energy "needs" down to the minimum, using only renewable and sustainable sources. We are a network of solutions at every scale, from homes to communities and cities to the globe.
Sunset has just one other member on board, Helen, and we hope we can expand to one of the most gardening-friendly neighbourhoods in Vancouver. Your closest operating "Village" is the Main Street Neighbourhood, and Helen has joined it since she cycles through our community every day.
Feel free to join Main Street to be invited to our monthly potlucks, seed sharing, soil sharing, solar projects, etc. If Sunset starts a Village, you can always part company and take with you what you learned on Main Street.
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.
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.
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.
