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...
Urban agriculture, community based preventative medicine, permaculture and biodynamics, the arts, urban homesteading, seed banks, potlucks, education, having fun!!!!
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 in the process of applying for a Neighbourhood small grant to create a community medicinal herb garden in Kits, I am knowledgable on herbs, natural health and nutrition, natural skin and body care and cleaning products. I have lived in many countries and am excellent at helping a diverse group of people make a vision a reality.
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 would like to see us be able to meet all our basics needs in our own communities, of course there will be luxuries beyond that, but hopefully they can be responsibly met. I wish to see healthcare return to the hands of the people and for us to live long healthy lives with out the need for drugs, surgery and having to rely on someone else to keep us healthy.
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.
