Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
Other
If you don't live in Vancouver or are in another neighbourhood or community we did not list, please tell us where home is.
Forest Grove, 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...
Creating community gardens / edible landscapes. Resource depletion awareness through the arts and spirituality.

As one of the co-founders of the Vancouver Peak Oil Group, I have been involved in this arena for the last 5 years.
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 would welcome suggestions.
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?
Yes

Hey Neil,

Matthew again from Village Burnaby.  We are planning our second potluck for Wednesday January 25th, 2012 at the Bonsor Recreation Centre (6550 Bonsor Ave).  We had an amazing first meeting, and would really like to build some momentum around the ideas discussed.

Also, if you want to stay in the loop with whats happening with Village Burnaby, please join our Village Burnaby page. Look forward to seeing you soon!

Hey Neil,

We are attempting to start a Village group in Burnaby, and are looking for all Burnaby folks to join us in our initial meet & greet.

We have set the meeting for Wednesday December 14th from 7pm - 9pm at the Bonsor Recreation Centre (6550 Bonsor Avenue) in Multipurpose Room 2.

The event will be a potluck, and if you can bring a small bite to share with the group it would be amazing.

I sincerely hope you can attend, and if not, please keep an eye on the Burnaby page as we will try to meet monthly from here on in.

Look forward to speaking with you soon!
