"Hi, My wife and I are super keen to help out if we can and to go on the tour itself. We would like to set up a hive or two in our garden, but have zero experience, so networking with local beekeepers would be fantastic! We make yogurt, kefir, kimchi…"

Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
Renfrew-Collingwood
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...
Urban agriculture, preserving seed diversity, beekeeping, sustainability, composting.
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!)
Community gardens, community beekeeping, fundraising, outreach, education.
Planning, organisational and management skills. Computer skills (research, report preparation). Public speaking and presentation. Technical knowledge (science and engineering education).
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 community gardens. More open community gardens (maybe door-to-ddor invites to help get the less informed or more shy individuals out and participating). Community outreach and education regarding urban food production and sustainability and individual responsibilities and opportunities.
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.

Food

Local, organic, rural, and/or urban, food production is a mainstay of life, and doing it well leads to wellness. From farm to kitchen, discussions relating to food--and the community arising around it--belong here.

66 discussions

Transportation

If you have to leave your village, how will you get where you want to go? By car? Preferably not, both for your wallet and the earth’s sake. This category is for all discussions relating to how we all get around.

7 discussions

Housing

A human right? After food, most feel shelter is the most important necessity. A place of shelter is also the start of a community. This category is for all things relating to shelter, housing, affordable housing, homes, renewable heating systems, green buildings, heritage, and our built environment in general.
