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...
I am interested in permaculture, bio-diversity -organic gardening from transplants into new upraised non-stained cedar boxes - needing to be built, any ideas? - in a small yard. Growing tomatoes - vertically. Marine manure for garden. Small hothouse along side of house. Growing sprouts indoors, as well. Herb garden along window sills and elsewhere. Preserving heirloom seeds, saving Monarchs with Milkweed, starting up my own Supernatural Sanctuary on land to be bequeathed with Crowd Fundraising - to be implemented, yet. Trade, Contra. Co-creation of a conscious community. Family working together. Raw, vegan potlucks. Organizing raw events. Some of my priorities and passions. Oh and writing articles on the raw, vegan superfoods lifestyle - moi!
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!)
