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...
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!)
My husband and I are extremely involved on the North Shore with educating the public/private sector about honey bees and native bees. At this point, we only focus on the North Shore, as it's such a special place for bees for many reasons.
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?
We would like to see more bee friendly plants in public and private green spaces, including and especially community gardens. My husband and I are also very involved in creating a Food Charter for the North Shore, which bees are an essential part of that program.
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.
I have organized for the Ministry of Agriculture to do an Introduction to Beekeeping Course in West Vancouver in mid September. Beekeepers need to be educated and informed about keeping bees.
