Permaculture Vancouver meets every third thursday of the month:
This month: Grandview Woodland Community Potluck:
Potluck (6:30-7:30pm):Bring something yummy for the potluck.
Workshop (7:30-8:30pm) – Herb Walk: Join local villager Nikoo as she leads us on a walk around the neighborhood identifying herbs. She will talk about some of their culinary and medicinal uses and help us to discover the unknown herbs growing in our urban environment.
Keep your eyes and tummy out for other monthly potlucks with Vancouver's transition town network - 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!
Permaculture Tricities is also now on meetup! Check them out of you are out that way!
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!

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.
