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...
Urban Ag, energy efficient buildings, the arts, urban homesteading, community building, having fun without making things less fun for others!
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!)
Skills: writing, facilitating, arts and crafts

First Ever East Van Chicken Coop and Culture Crawl!

Posted on June 1, 2012 at 11:02am 0 Comments

Hey folks,

As part of a "Compassionate Communities" project put on by Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House, a small group of people started talking about a way to visit and get to know others interested in edible gardens, chicken coops and bee hives. We came up with the idea of a "crawl" and applied for a Neighbourhood Small Grant...and got it! So now we have to organize the thing.

Here's the email we just sent out to our current mailing list (see below). I'm hoping some of you…

Hi Surya, What a great idea! I'd love to get involved with this! I have neither hives nor coops but am a East Ender and a local chef with willing hands. Let me know if you're still looking for bodies to help out. Cheers, Katie
