Also, please update your home page ("My Page" above) with some brief comments about your interests or a short bio. This will help us all connect with people with similar interests in sustainability, or any other activities. Maybe find a nice photo to upload, too. :-)
You are closest to what we call the Main Street Neighbourhood (or 'Hood), the local, walkable village under the umbrella of Village Vancouver. Our village, which is convened by Randy Chatterjee and Jason Mertz, is comprised mostly of people within Mount Pleasant and Riley Park. We sometimes hold large events at Heritage Hall (Main at 15th Ave) and meet every month--usually the first Tuesday--for a potluck and workshop at Little Mountain Neighbourhood House (Main at 24th Ave). We are active beekeepers and many members also have chickens. We are also working to establish a collaborative community garden in our area, which is a new model not based on individual plots but all working together in the whole space and sharing the produce. Market gardensare another model to check out, and we hope to establish one in our neighbourhood as well.
There's lots to get involved in, but we're an all-volunteer organization, so some individual initiative is needed.
