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?

Hi there Karen

You kindly sent me a message when I signed up and I have been meaning to contact you - sorry about the delay.

How are you doing?  I am so thrilled with what is happening in my front garden - Julia and her crew are doing amazing things.

I would love to check out your raised beds one day!
Bye for now
