Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
If you don't live in Vancouver or are in another neighbourhood or community we did not list, please tell us where home is.
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 very interested in both urban agriculture and localizing the economy.
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!)
Local Economy / Urban Ag. No expert, but would love to help where I can
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 think that a local currency would be a great start. Helping local business thrive, keeping our money in our community. Very important
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.

HI Mathew,

I am sorry to say I'm not able to join you tonight but do want to stay in the loop of what is happening in Burnaby as we are really working on sustaining our school garden program at Forest Grove Elementary. 

Perhaps in the spring whenever the next potluck occurs, I will be able to attend.

Hi Matthew,

I won't be able to attend the potluck this time.  Maybe later in the year.  I would like to see the goals of Village Burnaby included in the upcoming Environmental Sustainability Strategy process from the City.



PS  There's not much time to get organized for this year, but Village Burnaby might like to have a display at the Stoney Creek community's Great Salmon Send-Off on May 12. We expect 1500 to 2000 participants.  If you are interested, please email Pat Hargreaves at
