Permaculturalists around the world are making a bold statement about our collective future: Sustainability is not enough. Our habitat is threatened by climate change, oil spills, nuclear accidents. Our consumer culture alienates us from each other, and creates oppression and violence around the world as wealth is transferred from the global majority to a rich few. We need to go beyond sustainability and work to meet the needs of everyone on the planet with strategies that don't just do no harm to our environment and the people we share it with, but that actually regenerate our planet's ability to support us, and our ability to support each other. Permaculture design can show us how.
Come join Permaculture designers and educators Erin Innes and Jill Whitelaw to hear about some of the ways we can meet our needs with systems that also heal our climate, our water, our soil, and ourselves.
