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...
Everything - I am a very spiritual person, and wish we still walked barefoot upon earthen ground. I am interested possibly having cobb be a focus in our neighbour hood if other are also interested.
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!)
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?
energy - trash recycling for one - hire the unemployed and unhoused people to sort recycling if needed. gives everyone a job and keep V clean and responsible.

last spring when i started to prepare my garden i discovered that a pile of leaves i had raked from my neighborhood was full of lovely worms and so i happily dug them into my garden along with alternating layer of grass clipping and discard green leaves from the grocery grew fantastic pole beans,cherry tomatoes and squash Have bought a box of heavy duty black plastic contractors bags, have two big plastic shovels and a few rakes, if you would like to spend some happy hours raking up leaves with the kids and making a big pile to compost ,would you bring cups and a thermos of hot cocoa,rsvp
