Event Description

An Afternoon at the Library: Lots More Than Books!

1:15-2:15pm Westside Neighbourhood Food Network Info Session

2:25-3:25pm Seed Savers Club

3:30-4:30pm Village Vancouver, Permaculture & Transition Towns

Village Vancouver  is a grassroots, mostly vlounteer run non-profit society. We have thousands of community members and engage in over 350 mostly neighbourhood based activities and projects a year, and we're also part of the worldwide, permaculture inspired Transition Town movement. We engage individuals, neighbourhoods, and organiztions in taking actions which help connect neighbours in building just, sustainable, and resilient communities in fun and celebratory ways.
In this one hour interactive presentation, VV Founder and Convenor Ross Moster will hightlight some of our current  and upcoming initiatives, as well as discussing  some of the many ways in which people participate in Village.  We'll have the VV Kits branch VPL community seed library present - pick up some free seeds for your garden, swap or donate some seeds.

Gardening & gardening-related workshops, and other gardening activities are part of Village Vancouver's Building Community Food Security and Resilience Project. This project is made possible by the BC Ministry of Agriculture's Grow Local program. We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Agriculture.

We also acknowledge that the land on which we gather is the unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the Xwméthkwyiem (Musqueam), Skwxwúmesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
