Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
Grandview-Woodland
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...
I am interested in many things, but I would have to say that my primary Transition interests lie in food, energy and local economics. I have a Master's degree in Economics and have actually written my thesis on local currencies, so this is something that I would especially be interested in helping pursue here in Vancouver.
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 would especially be interested in working on an economic working group, or one having to do with food (I am an avid cook/baker).
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 think that a good start would be to cut down on all the paper coffee mugs people use and throw away each day. Imagine the difference if most people were to switch to reusable mugs!
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.

Hi Jordan, thanks for the warm welcome!  I'll definitely check out the open money videos and all the other initiatives that abound on this website.  I'm really glad to have found this community as I've been reading a lot lately about local food, permaculture, renewable energy, etc. and am eager to get settled in Vancouver and start practicing some of this stuff.

P.S. Yes I was shocked about the microlending laws in Canada, (it's not the same as the U.K. where you can quite easily lend money without being an accredited investor)

 

I'm afraid if you want to organise some kind of microlending initiative, the first thing you'll have to do is organize a campaign to change this aspect of Canadian law.

Hi Jordan,

 

I'm interested in getting involved, but I have to say I would be unlikely to be able to do work on the garden outside weekends, my work is pretty intense and demanding. One of the things I would be particularly interested in would be to share the same plot with someone else, so that I could fill in for them and they could fill in for me. I gather that gardening requires a high level of continuous attention and I'm not confident that I would have the time to work a plot all by myself.

 

But if anyone (or more than one) who already has a plot is willing to team up, them that would be something that I would definitely be interested in.

Hey Jordan, Ah darn about timing on the 20th. I looked on VV for conflicting events and didn't see any. Anyway, a screening in the New Year would work too. Captain Charles Moore will be coming to town, so we are planning some (non-clean bin) events around that.

Hey Jordan, Glad to hear you're on the mesh bags bandwagon - you'll never go back. We'd love to do a zero waste fair. After having so much fun in White Rock, we decided to have a Vancouver screening Dec 20th - it's probably a little short notice to get all those elements you talked about in place, but I have got my hand on some sets of bags and have plans for a couple other things. Let me know if you are able to be involved or can think of someone who would like to do a zero waste concession as a fundraiser for whatever they wanted.

Hey Jordan,

It was so good to meet you last week.  I would love to go to the event tomorrow night, but I have class.  I would like to hear some of your ideas pertaining to building a local food economy.  I am interested in attending the meeting on Tuesday.  I will have to check my schedule.  Thanks for the warm welcome to Village Vancouver!

Cheers,

Thomas
