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...
Highly interested in urban agriculture, permaculture, arts and community building
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!)
Absolutly - anything to do with urban agriculture and permaculture
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?

would be very interested in having a look at both sites and would have abundant energy to rake up and bag leaves to compost as the productivity o fthe soil depends so much on the mineral and organic matter being digested and recycled by mycorhizza,beetles,flora ,fauna,etc and autumn is the ideal time to feed the soil do we need to set up windrows or raised beds,how close is the water table to the surface,what prefers to grow there,is it clay,peat,sand.etc read hidden forest by luoma,great book

Where is the Mount Pleasant Food Forest?  

VV has applied (again) to take over a city-owned site at 23rd and Main, and--if approved--we plan to install a foot forest in part of the that site.  We'll let you know.
