Join us for inspirational examples of ecological design in cities and towns across the continent as award-winning author Toby Hemenway introduces his new book, The Permaculture City: Regenerative Design for Urban, Suburban, and Town Resilience. Be a part of a lively discussion on ways to apply nature’s wisdom to urban, suburban and town life. Permaculture’s approach to understanding natural systems can do more than improve how we grow, make, or consume things; it can also teach us how to cooperate, make decisions, earn a secure livelihood, and arrive at good solutions.
Come join us to learn more about how you can be part of applying these ground-breaking practices in your hometown and start building alliances to make it happen!
Publishers Weekly says: “Hemenway's intelligent, down-to-earth analyses, astute systems thinking, and clear organization offer a particularly comprehensive, open-ended, and sophisticated yet understandable overview to readers who want to discover, evaluate, utilize, and integrate the untapped resources abundant in any city or town.”
Toby Hemenway is the author of Gaia’s Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture, the best-selling permaculture book in the world. Visit him at tobyhemenway.com
