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...
Really into community building, permaculture, growing more food, eco-design, outreach, organizing events, the arts and definitely having fun while saving the world.
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'm new to village vancouver and still exploring so i'm open to groups and projects I can be apart of. I've been working as a plant maintenance technician for a couple years now and just recently got my permaculture design certificate from the bullocks permaculture homestead.
What would you like to see improved in Vancouver or in your community regarding sustainability or resiliency? Do you have an idea for a new Transition project or activity?
I want to see more community space, more gardens, edible plants in the city and people spending time with each other outside.
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'd love to meet new people I can learn from, have a good time with and work together to make this city and world a better place.
