Last night on "Marketplace" the issue of superbug contamination in chicken raised on factory farms was presented. I guess, due to feeding antibiotics in the feed, Superbugs are a problem. But no one mentioned organically raised chicken. I would bet the stats would be much different. I would bet that organically raised, pastured chickens dont have the high Superbug rate that the Factory Farm raised ones. As a matter of fact, i would bet that organic, pastured chickens are much healthier in…Continue

I was shocked today to discover a google link right to a post id made on this Vv site. When i clicked the link i was right inside the VV site, no request for password, no mention of membership. Is this normal?
It is a rare event when our local media, of any stripe, publish writing of such honesty and progressive weight on most all of the issues of Transition. We wish to celebrate just such an instance by reprinting a Tyee article here by two very talented writers, Christine Boyle and Seth Klein. Village Vancouver also wishes to thank The Tyee staff and editor for making such journalism possible.…Continue

I've been involved in a year-long community research project on urban farming in Vancouver, and as part of it, the Vancouver Urban Farming Society has brought together a team of stellar community surveyors from across the City of Vancouver to collect valuable survey data from people in their neighbourhood on their perceptions and experiences of urban farming.
In addition to the work of our team of community surveyors – we are also circulating the survey online to try…Continue

Im looking for a Vancouver and surrounding area forum for people interested in earth energies, healing, the faery kingdom, maybe some earth ceremonies ie fall equinox coming up
All benevolent, good, earth based ceremonies, teaching and practices.
Im thinking all genders can belong. Ie Wise men too.
Im thinking a website separate from VV. because theres really so much on here already. I cant make the forum so i need help.

I will be doing a small smudging ceremony in honor this year. For all the workers who have low paying jobs, who work hard everyday, for workers past and present. I hope you will join me and commemorate this important day however it is meaningful for you.
I might be interested in getting together with a group of VV ers and maybe go to Jerico or maybe meet up there for a ceremony and some words from the group. Heres to a new way of working in Canada that is fair, safe and pays better,…Continue

Just watching a BBC documentary on Australia. Interesting. So theres a business there growing Blue Fish tuna in huge tanks. The owner claims he is doing good because he's providing fish, at very high prices, tp high end consumers in places like Japan. He claims that growing fish in tanks takes pressure away from dwindling ocean stocks so that their numbers can grow again.
Sound good on paper but there are some issues here:
- dwindling natural resources are supposed to be a…Continue

Hello, I am hoping for a collaborative brainstorm. I am looking for examples (hopefully local) of individuals who have been successful working in or owning their own environmentally sustainable business. I deeply want to work for sustainable/earth-friendly organizations but also need financial stability. I am looking for inspiration, stories, career ideas, role models, and/or mentors. Is there anyone you can think of?
Its just in the idea stages now but it would be fun to go to a pow wow. I cant drive so we could car pool. Add your voice to this topic if you're interested. I have been to two, both in North Van. The salmon was delicious. They go on all over the province,
Although we are getting to the end of the season now.
