Profile Information

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...
urban homesteading, the arts
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!)
arts - technical (stage)
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?

Hi Caitlin,

Welcome to Village Vancouver! I'm sending you an invite to join Transition Strathcona - it's pretty new, but VV has been doing a lot in Strathcona lately.

Currently we're doing a Cultivating Food, Cultivating Community series at the Community Centre, and we've also just added a Permaculture Design for Community Resilency workshop (Nov 27-28), which will be followed by a Post Carbon Visioning (28th).

We held a Seed Saving workshop in October in Strathcona in conjunction with Farm Folk City Folk and BC Seeds, and are now working on starting seed saving collectives in a few neighbourhods, including yours, so if you're a seed saver...

Our Urban Market Gardens group is also for people doing urban homesteading, there's an Art and Celebrations group...take your pick!
