Event description

Description

We’ll explore some of the exciting activities taking place in our local neighbourhoods and elsewhere to build healthier, friendlier, and more sustainable communities. Then we’ll break into smaller, "neighbourhood villages" and collaboratively envision within each village what our ideal neighbourhood would look like. Bring your imagination! We'll have the Village Vancouver Kits branch VPL community seed library present - pick up some free seeds for your garden, swap or donate seeds.
