Profile Information

In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
Mount Pleasant
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...
urban agriculture, local and alternative currency, permaculture, urban homesteading, preserving seed diversity, transit, human-powered transportation, natural building methods (cob, straw bale,...), wild edible and medicinal plants, emergency preparedness
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'd like to get involve in the Mount Pleasant village (as well as others nearby).
At present, I want to learn about permaculture, seed saving, cob building, and emergency preparedness (and likely other things I can't remember at the moment).
I've learned alot about food gardening over about the past 15 years.
I've learned a bit about wild edible plants.
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.

Welcome to the Main Street 'Hood (click on this link and also join your local village) of Village Vancouver!  We also have a FaceBook page here.  Like us!

If you are on the east side of Mount Pleasant, Transition Cedar Cottage is also reasonably active.  Of course, the activity of each village of Village Vancouver depends on its members and their ideas.  We have a monthly potluck and program at Little Mountain Neighbourhood House (at 24th Ave on Main Street) always on the first Tuesday of the month.  So, in two weeks on March 4th from 6 to 8 we'll be meeting for a low-key community supper and a workshop...ah, but the topic for next month escapes me just now.  I think it will be on the Sharing Economy with the founder of the Tool Library, Chris Diplock.  Next month in April we'll be sharing seeds and seedlings/starts (free!) for most anything you'd like to grow. We'll also be discussing and showing ways to get things to grow indoors and out in Mount Pleasant.

I think our seed library will be there in March if you want to get a head start on your garden.

Check for more activities, averaging at least one a day on our events page.

Hope to see you around the 'hood!
