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...
Permaculture, bees, cheese making, food, growing more food.
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!)
I'm interested in meeting others who are passionate about similar things to myself. I have lots of experience with gardening, chickens, cheese making, cooking/baking, etc and would love the chance to learn from others who have more experience in other areas. I'm doing a practicum in organic farming at the UBC farm.
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 just recently moved back here, so I'm still not sure what all is happening in Vancouver. I'm excited to find out!
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.
Don't feel like answering all the questions now? No worries, just tell us briefly why you're interested in joining at this time, and you can come back and update your profile later.
I am interested in learning specifically about honey bees right now but I also am just wanting to find more of a community of passionate people.

Hi Jessica Welcome to VV. Why don't you join the Dunbar Village group as well? That way you can keep up with what is going on in our neighbourhood.
We/ve got a movie night tonight at St. Philips Church (27th and Highbury) at 7 pm for example. And an active emergency preparedness program (DEE).
Our working group is being reformed so if you/re interested in getting your hands dirty, please let me know.
Look forward to meeting you soon. Ann
