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 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.
Don't feel like answering all the questions now? No worries, just tell us briefly why you're interested in joining at this time, and you can come back and update your profile later.
To expand my contacts with local Beekeepers.

Hi Robert,
Great to hear from you and your interest in connecting with other local beekeepers. As you may have read on the VV beekeping site I have been asking people who sign onto the Village Vancouver Beekeeping site to let me know where they live and if they would be interested in part of a neighborhood beekeeping group. If you are willing to host an initial get-together with approx 6 -10 beekeepers from your neighbourhood please let know at ...that is how our Main street beekeepers group (with 10 people) got started (your group can decide how many members you want per group - we found a group of 8-10 works best as some people cannot make some gatherings (last year the main street group had three gatherings) I usually hold a meet and greet for beekeepers in the spring or fall but this fall I have to pass as my partner and I just had twins three weeks ago.
Best wishes, Anna
