Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
Strathcona, 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 local food, composting and recycling, gardening, community living.....among many other things!
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!)
Yes- community gardening, saving seeds, waste group, health group
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?
Urban gardening, regular compost pick-up

Hi LIsi,

Welcome to Village Vancouver! I'm glad to see that you're already joining various groups, 'cause it's really people power that drives us.

I noticed that you joined Seed Savers and I want to welcome you there as well. We just had a great seed saving workshop about 10 days ago with over 30 people - the next step is forming seed saving collectives in those villages where there appears to be enough interest (and experienced seed savers) to get going. Since you've mentioned Kits as one of your neighbourhoods, I wanted to mention that Kits Village is one of the neighbourhoods we're looking if this would be of interest to you, could you please tell me a little bit about "you and seeds". (And no worries, you needn't be an expert!)

Cheers, and we look forward to your participation in VV.
