Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
If you don't live in Vancouver or are in another neighbourhood or community we did not list, please tell us where home is.
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...
All of the above our community garden website
and my beekeeping website
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!)
Don't have an "Expertise" but would be willing to contribute time
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?
food security
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.

Steve, I'm looking for a way to contact you - we spoke briefly at your community garden hives several months ago. I'm looking to see if I can try your oxalic vaporizer.

Hi Steve I have a great opportunity to get some bees on Cortes island where I live at the weekends, I have a hive all set up but no bee suit or smoker. The bee guy (Reinhardt) won't give me the bees unless I get this equipment - which I am happy to do as I am a beginner!) I leave at 6.30 am on Friday to go to Cortes, have a full time job, etc you know of anywhere within driving distance that I can get this equipment off the shelf?

Hey Steve,

Amazing Pictures! That's great to already know you a little bit.
