Miraj,

The Main Street Neighbourhood village is holding our monthly potluck dinner and presentation tonight (Tuesday, 7 June) at Little Mountain Neighbourhood House on Main Street at 24th Ave (adjacent to the library).  Dinner and a free seed and food plant seedling giveaway start at 6:00 and then an urban gardening presentation and discussion begins at 7 for about an hour.  Come and stay as long as you want, or just drop by at any time.

See the full event description here.

Welcome to the Local Economy Network!

 

We're always glad to see new faces in our group, and as co-convenor I thought I’d give you a summary of what we’ve been working on over the past few months and how you can get involved.

 

At our first meeting last October, it emerged that concept of community currencies was of great interest to the group, and we decided that we would begin the process of planning a local currency for the Dunbar neighbourhood as a pilot project . Community currencies are forms of money developed by and for a community for various reasons, including relocalising and stimulating the economy,  supporting community projects and non-profits, re-introducing a more social aspect to economic transactions, and more. Using the experiences gained from Dunbar, we hope to be able to eventually either expand the currency to other neighbourhoods, or replicate it to have multiple neighbourhood currencies throughout Vancouver.

 

Since that meeting, a number of members of this group (and beyond) has begun preparations for the Dunbar Dollar, which we are hoping to be able to launch in late spring/early summer this year. There is a lot to be done, so if you are interested in volunteering in any way please contact me at info@dunbardollar.com.

 

I should also add that, although community currency has been our primary focus over the past

couple of months, it need not be the only project! There are many things that can be done to help

create a saner and more localised economy,  so all ideas are welcome.

 

Our next LEN monthly meeting is on Monday, April 4th from 6pm-8pm. If you would like to join us, please RSVP on the event page at http://www.villagevancouver.ca/events/local-economy-network-monthly-3.

 

I look forward to meeting you soon!

Just realized you are a Vanchow and were at the coffee tasting at Kafkas in January.  You chatted with my wife Alaka.  Namaskar.

Thanks also for coming out this week.

We are meeting next at Little Mountain Neighbourhood House for a potluck, seed sharing, and short movie night on Tuesday evening April 5.  This is right next to the library near 24th Avenue on Main Street.  Please stop in for some free seeds to sow in your garden or inside, or come for the entire event, from 6:00 to 8:30.  

We are organizing a number of events this summer, such as Car Free Day on Main Street on June 19.  We'll be erecting an entire sustainable village, with chickens, bees, a composter, rain barrel, solar panels, etc.  We'll need volunteers to help make it a great place to visit for everyone.  

Meanwhile, we are busy growing lots of food in the city and are creating a roving food market (a small farmer's market) to distribute this zero-mile food to every neighbourhood in Vancouver, by bicycle.

There is lots to do, and lots of fun people to do it with.

Whatever you'd like to do, we'll help to make it happen.
