In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
Other (indicate below)
If you don't live in Vancouver or are in another neighbourhood or community we did not list, please tell us where home is.
My partner and I are moving to Vancouver from Saskatoon in May 2014
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 ALL of the areas of transition! I want this to be my life when I move to Vancouver. I want to be part of a community that is making a difference. I want to be part of the grassroots movement. I want to meet like minded people and learn and grow with them.
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 am especially interested in urban agriculture, permaculture (currently Wwoofing in New Zealand on permaculture farms), urban homesteading, energy efficient/ self sustainable homes (tiny homes, earth ships, etc.) And, on that note; I live in a Tiny home (136 square feet) I am interested in what other people are doing and how to improve the laws regarding licensing, regulations, building permits, composting toilets, grey water, etc.
I have a degree in Education. I am not shy and public speaking and/or talking to and educating children (or adults) on community building, farming, etc. I am currently learning how to efficiently sow seeds, plant, watering techniques, companion planting, transferring plants, designing and building gardens as well as general landscaping. I am very hard working, I learn fast and I am dedicated to the cause. I am creative and artistic. I paint and write poetry. I would love to help advertise activities and spread the word. I am SUPER organized (I am also a personal assistant) I am good a organizing and planning both activities/events as well as physical spaces, information, etc.
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'll have to wait and see what is going on in the Vancouver community before I can offer new suggestions for projects or activities.
