So.., What’s Permaculture? and What is this Transition movement?

Time: April 14, 2009 from 6:30pm to 9pm
Location: Maple Leaf Lutheran Church
Organized By: John Samaras & Sue McGann

Event Description: …a series of shorts that begins to answer these common questions. The Permaculture movement arose in Australia in the ‘70s as a positive constructive response to the energy and environmental crises that are still with us. It was a part of the “Back to the Land” movement of the time but many believe it is just another form of gardening, like “organic,” “bio-dynamic,” or “bio-intensive.” As this movement has evolved, two relatively new branches have grown out of it: Urban Permaculture and the Transition Towns movements. These are centered around growing sustainable and resilient community.

Come join us to watch these films and engage in community discussion. Social 6:30pm; films begin at 7:00pm. See more details and RSVP on Northeast Seattle Neighbors’ Sustainability Network:
