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...

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 am already working with theGardening arm and have attended Main St potlucks
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?
Don't know where to start.. I moved here from Way Down Under (meaning Australia, not the U.S.) so still getting my feet wet...
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.

Hi Randy - it's Carol - we've met at a couple of the great potlucks (thanks for all the turkey, I love it). Just formally signed on to VV instead of going thru Buckko's email.
So I am in the Riley Park neighbourhood and not Main St.? Hope they dont toss me out!!
See ya soon.

Welcome, neighbour!

We'll have to share a coffee sometime in "the Village."

Was it you who wanted to see the Nutcracker?

@ 17th near Ash, NNE of you by 6 blocks.

BTW-Your neighbourhood is the same as mine, Riley Park/South Cambie. (Yes, this is North Cambie, but no one here ever learned how to use a compass.)

Village engages individuals, neighbourhoods & organizations to take actions that build sustainable communities & have fun doing it. Join us!
