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...
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 interested in getting involved with the West End Neighbourhood Food Network events and potlucks, beekeeping and gardening. I have knowledge, skills and resources in urban planning and permaculture.
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?
I would like to see a greater balance between natural and man-made landscapes in Vancouver and propose a "green the city" transition project where people could get together to plant edible landscapes along the urban corridors.

Welcome to Village, Krystie! I've noted you interests in the West End and have sent you invites to WE Transition Village and WE Neighbourhood Food Network, as well as to Neighbourhood Food Networks, and it looks like there's others you might be interested in as well (permaculture, bees, gardening, seeds, gardens, etc.)
I'm the coordinator to WENFN, so let me know if you're interested in talking about how to get involved.
Interested in participating in a VV garden? We have collaborative gardens/garden spaces in 5 neighbourhoods. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Gardening now in progress. New gardeners welcome (space allowing).
