Just a quick note before I dash off to the wilderness for a few blessed days: I’m giving a talk with fellow Permaculturalist Jill Whitelaw at 7pm on Wednesday, July 6 at the Longhouse Ministry building on Franklin St. The talk is called “Going Beyond Green,” and we’ll be sharing some of the ways in which Permaculture design can help us go beyond just sustaining ourselves where we’re at (ie, surviving) and take us into actually regenerating our environment, our communities, and ourselves (ie, thriving!). Permaculture is all about finding ways to meet human needs with systems that also leave our world, both ecological and interpersonal, better than we found it, and this talk will be a bit of a primer on how we do that.
Specifically, we’ll be talking about some of the ways that Permaculture strategies can help us change our relationships with water and soil, two of our most precious nonrenewable resources that are currently under imminent threat.
The event is free, but donations will be gratefully accepted. I hope to get to see some of you out there in the real world. Here are the event details:
