In which Vancouver neighbourhood or other community do you live?
If you don't live in Vancouver or are in another neighbourhood or community we did not list, please tell us where home is.
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...
I am passionate about creating local business with local food. Using mycorrhizal fungi my company digests urban waste turning it into a rich living soil additive for urban farmers and homesteaders. We also make a countertop mushroom garden www.Mushboo.com
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 love to grow things, from plants to mushrooms. We host beehives on our rooftop and supply our soil amendment to many local community gardens.
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?
We are turning our business Mushboo.com into a cooperative and are looking for members to join us in our mission to turn urban waste into a valuable growing medium.
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.
Don't feel like answering all the questions now? No worries, just tell us briefly why you're interested in joining at this time, and you can come back and update your profile later.
I went to a Spaghetti community potluck and had a great time. I want to get more involved with this community.
