Profile Information

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...
Pretty much all of the above and I would add helping the broader community to wake up.
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!)
New to Vancouver and still figuring out what's going on out there. I have energy, creativity, intelligence, ability to organize and attention to details and good communication skills.
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.

Hey Janet,

Have you thought about  posting the crane making dinners in arts and celebrations and Kits Village? (As a discussion, or could be as a comment.) Both are good places for spreading the word for something like this!

Hi Janet:  good to meet you.  It's wonderful to have some "big picture" thinkers in the group.  Peter and I will be attending the cohousing talk on Feb.23 at the Wise Hall.  Hope to see you there.

Hi Janet:   As there are several Janets, we met you at the cohousing event tonight.  If interested, friend us.
