Event Description

Eternal Abundance and Rooted on the Drive Cafe and Permaculture activist Erin Innes present three dynamic and interactive talks on Permaculture strategies for a radical reintegration of urban human communities with the ecology that supports us. 

All events are by donation, suggested donation $10 - $20. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

SESSION 3 -- Working with Water: Thinking seriously about water, urban ecology, and climate change.

We have lots of water in Vancouver -- don't we? It's true, we are blessed with an abundance of water all around us. But what do we do with it, and where does it go? Is our urban infrastructure actually turning our watery paradise into a desert? Permaculture offers techniques for saving and purifying our water using nature's processes, to maintain the health of our climate, our ecosystems, and our communities. This introduction to Permaculture strategies for dealing with water (both too much of it, and not enough of it!) will focus on what our water concerns are in this bioregion, and how they might be shifting with climate change.


Erin Innes is a Permaculture activist and educator based in Vancouver BC (Coast Salish Territory). Her radical approach -- radical as in roots -- to sustainable community design involves looking to ecological principles to promote environmental justice through community building, place making, and participatory earth healing practices. She has worked with organizations as diverse as the Richmond Fruit Tree Sharing Project, Permaculture Vancouver, Food Not Bombs, Village Vancouver, and Langara College. She lives and gardens in Vancouver's Hastings-Sunrise neighourhood.
