Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
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...
Permaculture, urban agriculture, arts, get and give support to like minded people
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!)
Initially I would like to feel comfortable then I may consider assisting
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?
More food plants in front yards.
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.

earth from vancouver landfill

Posted on September 3, 2014 at 10:30am 0 Comments

Does anyone know the best place to get earth for my garden? I thought the vancouver landfill would have the best priced and generally best earth but recently I was told that the landfill earth is full of nasty weed seeds. Does vancouver landfill practices of hot compost not kill them? Do food scraps get turned to earth in the time vancouver landfill holds that kind of waste? Any reviews or where I could find reviews?

Thank you for your help. I do have my own two compost bins but these…

Hi, Kathi, I often think about you -and walk by your home, but haven't seen you recently. just back from a potluck/food security discussion at Kits House, and thought I'd drop you a note.  - It doesn't feel like soup weather right now, but come September, let's connect again - I'm off camping for a week or so. I've lost your email address so send me a note to if you'd like to get together some time.
