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, community building,
food,cooking,urban agriculture, cooking workshops, community kitchens, food security for people with budgetary challenges.
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!)
An excellent cook, very organized, good at workshops, interested in workshops, potlucks, community kitchens and lots more. am pretty good at organizing events.
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 would like to organize a regular potluck event for people engaged in food security projects/work. I feel there is not enough opportunity to socialize and talk in a relaxed environment without time constraints. I feel that it needs to be held in an environment where people can freely move around and sit at different tables and in a venue with a fairly large capacity.
