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!)
2015-2017 Aberthau Garden Project

My walk through the Aberthau Demonstration Permaculture Garden in Vancouver

This 4:18 min. video on YouTube illustrates the status of the Demonstration Permaculture Garden, during the month of Harvest (September 2016), 18 months after its creation. Emphasizing regenerative, low maintenance and moisture retentive permaculture design elements, it is uniquely staged behind the Aberthau Mansion located just off of NW Marine Dr, at walking distance from Vancouver's Locarno Beach. It includes a small hugelkultur, an herb spiral, and saving open pollinated seeds, the garden's annual and perennial veggies, fruits, herbs and flowers, including pollinator attractants.
Piloted by Ross Moster, Convenor at Village Vancouver Transition Society, assisted by Mr. Michel Bonin, a volunteer, the Permaculture Garden is part of the Aberthau Garden Project which also includes the West Point Grey Preschool Garden, and (following last year’s Sunflower Garden) the Pumpkin Patch, a new art/garden project by Aberthau artists-in-residence LocoMotoArt: Laura Lee Coles and Rob Scharein.
