Permaculture Vancouver meets every third thursday of the month:

 This year is right livelihood & collaboration!

What is it you want to work on? What are your concerns, and passions? 

Clean energy? The new economy marketplace? Social Permaculture? 

Lets break out in to pods and develop ideas. 

Bring food to share if you like. 

Also:

This group is now transitioning to a monthly potluck format, in conjunction with Village Vancouver. There are currently 3 monthly potlucks  - East West and Central. The model is a potluck and workshop. We are encouraging you to visit a regular potluck and then when the momentum rises for other neighbourhoods, let them be formed!

There is a potluck on February 23rd:

Come meet with fellow Permaculture enthusiasts to share your skills, knowledge, and questions.  This is a great opportunity to get involved with or start projects around the city!

If you have extra harvest produce/seeds/plants to share or sell, please bring them.

Information and volunteer opportunities to help design and implement permaculture methods.

Volunteer opportunities to put our skills into action with local farming alliances.

Permaculture is about creating sustainable human habitats. It is about taking the energy from the land and encouraging it to cycle back into the land, to reuse it as many times as possible before letting it go (out to the sea of entropy, where we can't use it any more) so for example, a piece of land receives sun wind and rain. if we catch those... and use them judiciously, we can make our garden grow, and feed animals who will poop and return that to the land, and pretty soon we have better soil, better food, some protection, and eventually something to build with.

    Hi, everyone. I want to let everyone know that I have a ten 10 hectare farm in Costa Rica that I am willing to lend out for free to any group of people that would take care of the land for 10 years. Maybe more. I also have a friend that is looking for people to develop DIY uses for Liquid Glass a new nanotechnology much like never wet but better. This invisible barrier makes nearly every surface hydrophobic, can last for many years. It can be applied to nearly every surface and is not very expensive. A small amount goes a long way. Please check out my https://www.facebook.com/BCNanotek
    To find some interest content about this new technology and message me about any ideas. He and I want to engage with you about finding solutions to permaculture problems especial durability. Currently UBC, MIT and Cambridge are studying the properties of this product when applied to bamboo composites. Please share and message about ideas.

    Hello! I am new to this forum but looking to put in a large permaculture garden in Burnaby. The property has numerous fruit trees and is on a south facing slope and owned by a church. We have no money but a Hugelkulture plan and would like to terrace the slope. Are there any Burnaby permie advisors out there and do folks ever do work blitzes? thanks Fiona

      Hello Fiona, I live in Coquitlam and am acquiring funding for projects this year. I would love to talk more about getting a team together and possibly taking on your space as a pilot project, to really get maximum productivity. I will attend the potluck on the 23rd, I hope we can chat. If you would like to coordinate further, send me a private message :)

    Protect the Right to Save Seeds!
    Bill C-18, the “Agricultural Growth Act” omnibus bill, amending several federal agricultural laws, was introduced in Parliament on December 9, 2013. If passed, it will give multi-national agri-business much more money, power and control while increasing farmers’ costs and reducing farmers’ autonomy and Canadian sovereignty. The National Farmers Union has posted information about Bill C-18 and its implications, as well as information about the NFU's proposed Farmers Seed Act All the action tools and information are posted here: http://www.nfu.ca/issue/stop-bill-c-18
    You can print the petition and collect signatures for your MP: http://www.nfu.ca/issue/petition-right-save-seeds
    Please note: Online petition signatures cannot be presented in the House of Commons. If you collect over 25 signatures from your community, you can ask your MP to present this in the House of Commons.
