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...
Potlucks, outreach, organizing events, having fun while saving the world.
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!)
Any groups relating to growing food and feeding the community. I have working in the banking and finance industry. I'm intelligent, determined to help people and make a difference in the world.
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?
There are multiple grocery stores and restaurants that I believe so not have the knowledge of what to do with the extra food that they have. I think that we have enough food that no one ever should go hungry and yet many do in Vancouver. I don't know if such a program exists but I would like to see a program where extra food is given to the homeless shelters.
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.
Yes
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 always been interested in food; cooking and feeding other people and definitely eating. It just seems like a natural thing for me to also learn how to grow food as well and at the same time use food to make the world a better place.
