"Anyone find the beaters I used to whip cream? Ross, have they taken up residence somewhere in your kitchen? Great to come, munch together, and meet you all. Another time I'll manage to come sans kids and pay more attention!"

"Hello, new neighbours. I will come and bring kids... not to feed to you. I'll bring food too. :-) Looking forward to knowing you all better. Lini"

Profile Information

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...
all of the above interest me: I remember hearing David Suzuki say 25 years ago that we need to organize ourselves into smaller communities, and my early life indicated to me the value of knowing one's neighbours. I try to do that where I live, in quite a limited way. I'd like to do more.
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'm not sure I have anything to offer, but I love my home and community garden experiences; someday I'd like chickens; and we are a car-free family. I'm also keen to find ways to make non pickup plastics recycling more accessible/ do-able for our community
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?
A real sense of interdependence and the value of our relationships with each other and the earth would completely alter our understanding of what sustainability is.
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.

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.

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.
