Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
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...
I am an architect specializing in green building design and construction; so I am interested in resource and energy efficiency as well as urban agriculture.
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!)
I am interested in the Burnaby group
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.
Having read Heinberg's The End of Growth, I learned about the Transition network very recently. I need to feel part of the solution (as opposed to part of the problem).

Join Trevor, Mishon and Alex on Saturday April 25th for a session of Permaculture Art and Architecture as they embark on their Spring journey at Vancouver Ecovillage. This weekend they cut the grass, tilled the earth and filled the garden beds with soil, composted nutrients and natural fertilizer in preparation for our upcoming planting. All are welcome to come for gardening fun and learning!
