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...
living life well, living life simply

potlucks, permaculture, community building, community events
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 love to learn more about container gardening

Hi Romanda

That would be great.

I remember we were 3 or 4 people at that table who lived on the same block as I do, corner Fraser and East 6th. One of you lives just across the Fraser street from me.

We should definately get together. I've been thinking a doing a block party on this block for a couple of years and talked to people in my buidling about it and in the 2 buidlings next door.

Let's reconnect in Septemeber.

The Main Street Neighbourhood village is holding our monthly potluck dinner and presentation tonight (Tuesday, 7 June) at Little Mountain Neighbourhood House on Main Street at 24th Ave (adjacent to the library).  Dinner and a free seed and food plant seedling giveaway start at 6:00 and then an urban gardening presentation and discussion begins at 7 for about an hour.  Come and stay as long as you want, or just drop by at any time.

See the full event description here.

Thank you so much for volunteering. It was a big chaotic and the sheer number of attendees meant some things took a different course, but everyone seemed to have fun and we somehow help to feed and nourish 280 people. Next time we'll be better organized and maybe more modest in the scale of the event.

Meanwhile, having finally recovered from Monday, I am looking forward to our next Main Street get-together where we expect to plan new fun events and projects this fall and winter.

Take care and see you soon.
