Also Jo, check out what the Grandview Woodland Food Connection is doing around bulk buying of local organic food. Can we help? Are we competing? Lots of possibilities.

Welcome, Jo!

With well over 300 members now, VV will be a great place from to seed new NOWBC members.

Please feel free to contribute to a discussion or create a new one, enter and cross-promote NOWBC events, join a working group (especially as Ross asked, VV's Food Network, and of course join the Dunbar Village.

Also, please update your home page ("My Page" above) with some brief comments about your interests or a short bio. This will help everyone connect with people with similar interests in sustainability, or other activities. Maybe find a nice photo to upload, too. :-)

Again, VV's tight connections with NOWBC will continue help both organizations.

Hey Joanna,

Welcome to Village Vancouver! Dunbar Neighbourhood Transition started earlier this month, and I'm sure they'd welcome your presence as well. (See Villages.). And please feel free to post about NOW BC Co-op, of course; after all, NOW is one of our closest allies.

Be well,
Ross

P.S. I'm also sending you an invite to join our Neighbourhood Food Network.

Forum

Food

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.

73 discussions

Transportation

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.

7 discussions

Housing

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.
