In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
Burnaby
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 homesteading, community gardens, potlucks, sustainable living
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 just starting to learn and looking to get involved. I'm interested in meeting people interested in community gardening / sustainable living and then going from there.

I had a backyard garden growing up that I got dirty digging weeds out of and tilling each year. Never afraid to get my hands dirty.

I've been a professional web developer in the past, and have a background in motion graphics, both of which could be useful for outreach.
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?
Even more community gardens.
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.

Hey Neil,

Thanks for joining us!  So glad you are looking to get involved!  You should have just got a LONG update from me as to what is going on with Village Burnaby, certainly Community Gardens are a big priority for us, and I am really excited to hear you are working on some awesome (really awesome!) stuff. 

Lets chat soon, be happy to meet for coffee, maybe you can join our activists group, or just make it out to the next potluck in March.

Look forward to meeting you and hearing more about your projects!

Cheers,

Matthew
