Latest Activity: Oct 14, 2014
Imagine your ideal neighbourhood. What would you like to see in it? What assets, knowledge, skills, and other people powered resources exist in False Creek South and how can neighbours collaborate in making better use of these resources to create a healthier, more vibrant and diverse, sustainable and resilient False Creek South community? And how can Village Vancouver, as Vancouver's Transition Hub, help foster this?
Examples of "village" activities in other neighbourhoods around Vancouver include potlucks, community and collaborative gardens, permaculture, community asset mapping, recycling and composting depots, seed libraries, workshops, movie nights, block parties, emergency preparedness, community festivals, native edible walks, art and placemaking, canning and preserving, collaborations with other groups, drop-in spaghetti nights, dinner groups, Neighbourhood Food Networks, Neighbourhood Small Grant projects, and much more.
Join us for a tasty potluck, followed by a visioning session where we "imagine the possibilities" for False Creek South and explore ways to connect, and learn more about what Re*Plan and FCS Neighbourhood Association are doing, the new FCS email list, and False Creek South Village Vancouver. Bring some food (homegrown, if possible), or a non-alcoholic beverage to share, and your own tableware if you're able to.
