I am here to be part of the solution along with each one of you.

Together we can make it happen.

Build VVillages designed for living.

Organized people is what makes the world go round.

Our dreams are within our reach,

Let's reach out and grab a couple handfuls to share.

I've got a pound of Permaculture, a kilo of Culinary, an ounce of Answers, and a quarter ton of questions.

Let's throw some ideas around and see what we can stir-up.

Welcome, Yee!

As you can see, we are just beginning to build an on-line community for Village Vancouver, and organize our extensive activities more openly and collaboratively through this site. Please feel free to contribute to a discussion, attend or even enter a new event, join a working group, or even form a Village.

We already have another West Van'er on board, Matt Rowland, who's joined out Energy Group. Whatever your interest, let us know. We'll plug you in.

Also, please update your home page ("My Page" above) with some brief comments about your interests or a short bio. This will help us all connect with people with similar interests in sustainability, transition, or other activities.


Village engages individuals, neighbourhoods & organizations to take actions that build sustainable communities & have fun doing it. Join us!
