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...
We are a community arts centre that provides a place for intercultural connections, a gathering place for the community and an opportunity for all to experience the arts in programs, events and performances. Most recently we started a cultural herb garden on the grounds of Moberly Park adjacent to the cultural centre. We are interested in poviding opportunities to expand community members knowledge and stewardship of the herb garden as well, link the garden to community arts engagement.
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!)
South Vancouver Security Network: geographically we are serving the same community, joining forces will encourage participation.

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 startd this wee garden a year ago as a way to support the community interest in gardening. My goal is to get the word our about this project and connect with other like minded groups to expand the opportunity for participation.
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.
