Hi Ann,
Thank you for reaching out to me when I joined Village Vancouver! It turned into a very busy school term so I didn't have a chance to reply. I am very interested in Emergency Preparedness at a neighbourhood level. I have just moved to a new community near Fraser + Broadway and would like to get neighbours together to make emergency kits/make emergency plans. I am part of a student group participating in a CommUnity Resilience design challenge by Engineers for a Sustainable World. I will also be planning some workshops for the Main Street Village beginning in February and would like to incorporate resilience as a theme, encouraging people to connect with each other, plan, share skills etc... I would love to hear more about what you do! I am home for the holidays until Dec 31st but am reachable here via message, or by email. Cheers,

Hi Ann,

Sure I can help with the website transition. Over the summer my circumstances will be changing a lot and at short notice, it might be best to contact me as and when you need me with smaller specific tasks, and if I'm free at the time I can help.

Ann! Nice to chat with you on here. Would you be able to share a bit more about the outreach committee ?

Hi Ann,
Thanks for connecting. I missed the Rec Centre workshop as I wasn't feeling well last Sat. But I'm scheduled to attend the Developing Personal Preparedness Programs - EM931 on October 19 at JIBC.
My plan is incorporating this training into my Village Surrey work, to reach communities and through this, talk a bit about resiliance in general, but we are just starting so it may take some time...
I live in Cloverdale...

Hi Ann,

Thanks for the welcome and info on the Dunbar Village group. We moved from Ladner and are so pleased with Dunbar/Southlands community and all the trails, horses, birds, bees, and chicken! Our first recon of the neighbourhood involved canoeing down the Fraser from our backyard to Richmond - we loved it.

Looking very forward to meeting you and others in community.

I am hoping to move to that area!  I am doing raised garden beds, potted crops, but am looking forward to farming in my native BC!
I want chickens (had them as a child but embarking on my own coop now) will be looking for contacts.
I found VV by searching for info on chickens in Vancouver, I am excited to join this group!

Thanks for the welcome. I joined the Dunbar Village group. Attened the lecture tonight at Robson Square on Climate Change, very engaging. Not sure if the live streaming is available to watch again but worth a look if it is. I've plans already for Thursday, so will miss the film showing. Look forward to join in for other events. Robin

Hi Ann,

Thanks for the welcome! I'm going to try to make it for the screening, albeit a bit late as my classes at school end at 6:50pm. Hope to see you there!

Hi Ann,

Can't make it to movie tomorrow- such a shame as I've really wanted to see Greenhorns!  Now that the growing season has ended I'm much more open to helping plan events etc.  Looking forward to working with ya in Dunbar.

Hi Ann - Thanks for the warm welcome!  Since I posted my profile, we've actually decided to move to the west end (!) so I will only be in the dunbar area till the end of the month - but I will certainly come to check out the Dunbar Harvest Festival this weekend. I'm looking forward to connecting!

Hello there. Where does Julia smith have her 300 chickens?
Next spring I may redo my fence in the back of my shop and get a few.
When we had them before they were in our yard next to the old bosleys om Dunbar st.
In the meantime I'd like to do a chicken strain thing on my etc.

Thanks for inviting me Ann. I joined the Dunbar Transition Group and I look forward to engaging more in neighbourhood sustainable activities.

Thanks for the message.  As you see, I joined the group!  My fiance and I would like to go to the movie night - just have to double check what our week is looking like.  Look forward to meeting you!

Could you please send me your email so I can forward this to your directly. I'm finding this Village Vancouver/Facebook type format very frustrating and time consuming to work around.

Hi Ann,

Thanks for the lovely welcoming message! My husband, Mike Kaweski, is also a member.

We are planning to go to the movie night this week; I'm looking forward to meeting other people from the neighbourhood and perhaps seeing some familiar faces.
