Permaculture Village

Transition is based on, and inspired by,  Permaculture principles. Permaculture is permanent agriculture and permanent culture. We will be approaching 'creating sustainable habitat' in many different ways: regular design & demonstration projects; Social permaculture; workshops. Permablitzes, Blitzes or Permaculture Energy Transfer or Pet Day are days that we go on site collectively create systems which cycle energy toward win win win economy. Food forests provide abundant gardens and parks…See More

Next Meeting - July 4 please RSVP

Hi VS members, Last meeting at the library (Thursday June 20) we informally agreed on having a follow up meeting to discuss conflict within the group.This meeting would be held on Thursday, July 4 at 6:30 pm and many suggested that the library would be a good location, at least until the group decides on a better venue, convenient to most members; many have expressed that the library feels safe, is convenient and offers protection in case the weather is not good. I have tentatively booked the…See More

Edible City tonight

We had the movie night at City Centre Library today and about 60 people attended. Everybody enjoyed the movie ("Edible City") and we had great questions, ideas and discussions after the screening. We are hopeful that this will be the start of a great "revolution" on how we grow our food and how, where and from whom we buy the food we can't grow.If you are interested in starting a community garden, starting a "home-grown food" group or just have curiosity, please contact us at our Facebook page.See More

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...
Growing a vegetable garden, permaculture, transit, energy efficiency, outreach, training, community building, social services, learning with and from others to be more sustainable
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!)
Preparing presentations and workshops to create awareness. Coaching on simply living, recyclying and reusing, using less energy. Helping out to use abandoned spaces to create gardens and community spaces. Giving presentations, creating, managing newsletters, brochures and distribution lists. Doing research. Helping out in documentaries and movie screenings
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?
Better use of waste, more composting, community gardens and use of empty spaces for useful things (for the community). Less "development proposals" and more open and safe spaces for children to paly, and people from all backgrounds, ages and cultures to share.The opportunity of being more sustainable even when living in townhouses...more biking and car pooling and more public transportation.
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 just read "The End of Growth" and learned about transition towns iniciatives. It's something I had always wanted to be involved with but I don't know where or how to start. I am just at the beginning of this "journey"...

Hi Silvia
that is fantastic. We've been mostly focused on getting our neighbourhood groups up and running. But would love to have discussion with you and others, about how we might leverage what we've already accomplished.
I just completed the Reception Centre course this weekend and have also joined the new Fire department team.
We are well positioned on the radar screen of both the Vancouver ESS and the Vancouver Fire dept efforts to reach out to communities.
Look forward to meeting you soon.
Cheers.
Ann
