WE ARE LIVING SYSTEMS NETWORK
Seeding radical systems change by sharing tools for regenerative culture
Holding space to build and celebrate community to #coGrow and #coCook. coFood Vancouver catalyzes neighbours and projects doing good work in our food communities. Together we practice collaborative urban farming through a #permaculture lens, and convene dinners & dialogues on #foodwaste - #foodsupply - #foodjustice - #foodtech - #foodeducation
Re-localizing our food supply. Alphaponics experiments with DIY indoor growing #foodtech including aqua- and hydroponics in "Alpha", a shipping container retrofitted with a greenhouse roof, all in the #coFood #CollaborativeGarden.
Supporting builders of resilient technology and tools for distributed governance. The Holonode draws together to gather inspiration from, learn more on, and help implement the post-blockchain decentralized & distributed software #Holochain.
Prioritizing stewardship of common spaces over ownership. The coSpace node pilots and hones methods for effective, collaborative management of common spaces. Together we work to bridge between private and public space, to #coWork and #coCreate.

Emily is half of WholeWorld, spearheading a wholesome and biomimicry approach to catalyzing peer to peer, cooperative and collaborative networks around complex systemic issues. By piloting and growing community structures for collaboration,she's seeking to combine our collective potential and intelligence to make change real and tangible, from urban agriculture and data ownership through to cohousing, coworking and coproduction.
Emily's path is grounded in agricultural sciences and Bioresource Engineering, with seriously in-depth study of the intersection of food and waste in modern urban settings. She walks, reads, self-reflects and practices the sometimes elusive state of mindfulness.
