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...
community building, relocalizing our economy, and food networks
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 would like to organize people around food. I would like to facilitate meet-ups in my neighbourhood for people to come together to eat and talk about food.
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 am organizing a local dinner with some friends at mt.pleasant neighbourhood house. I would like to access the listserv to request local Vancouver food produce donations.

Welcome Travis, I am sure we can entice local farmers and home growers to share their produce at a potluck of sorts at the Neighbourhood House. We will soon be doing exactly thatat Heritage Hall at our annual Neighbour Savour event (click here for more info). Also, we have a potluck at Little Mountain Neighbourhood House on the first Tuesday of every month, and you are certainly invited to join us there, and even suggest ideas for themes or projects. Enjoy all we do, and I hope we can help you do things you couldn't do alone.
