Learn how to build a classic Permaculture "herb spiral" garden.  Using nature as our inspiration both in its beautiful nautilus shape and its functional design, we will create this special kind of garden and learn about the benefits it can offer you in growing perennial herbs and vegetables for your kitchen.  Stay for an optional potluck dinner if you want to enjoy the sunset on Mt.

talk on peak oil

I gave a talk on peak oil and energy issues for 10/10/10, and since then have expanded it to a discussion of about an hour and a half.  I have the computer and projector, but not a projection screen upon which to show it.  Would be delighted to give this talk to any group, large or small, in a school or anybody's home or in our home for that matter.

Hi Sandy,

I'm part of a group of local non-profits that is organizing a city-wide event together, and I'll keep your offer in consideration!  We will be meeting for the first time at the end of this month. 

 

Our next film will be on 2/17:  "Dirt: the Movie."  We already have two presenters that night, so that event is full.

Sandy, I'm not in a position now to organize anything more. The Laurel group hasn't met for a long time. You could contact Ginger Kennell or Juliet Thompson. Also, if I had time to organize something I'd want to know more specifically what you would present. Thanks, Cyndy

Hi Sandy, I look forward to hearing one of your presentations on peak energy issues!  Re your request for connecting with Laurel group, I'll send you an email with my phone number, and ideas for connecting in with that neighborhood using our ning.com network site.

I'm confident there are many neighborhoods & community groups that would welcome your presentation!  You might also want to connect in with Kate Clark, who may also be interested in presentations that are focused on educating about peak energy & peak-everything!
