Transition Berkeley Presents: Permaculture Inspiration & Gardening Opportunities
Wednesday, May 22, 7-9 pm
Join us for this inspiring and informative evening where we’ll show the film, “Permaculture: the Growing Edge”, hear from local gardening representatives and experts on how you can tap into local opportunities for growing food.
The lineup of guests includes: Victory Lee, People’s Victory Garden Program and 4th year of the Victory Garden Challenge, Lotta Chan, head of the Community Garden Working Group, Alexa Hauser and Catherine Sutton, Transition Albany, will share about the Memorial Park Edible Landscape project, and Joy Moore, co-founder Farm Fresh Choice and Garden Coordinator for Berkeley Technology Academy.
Permaculture is a sustainable system of earth care that offers solutions to many of our grave environmental problems and a hopeful, proactive vision of change. The film introduces us to inspiring examples of projects, and includes a visit to David Holmgren’s own homestead, tracking deer with naturalist Jon Young, sheet mulching an inner-city garden with Hunters Point Family, transforming an intersection into a gathering place with City Repair and joining mycologist Paul Stamets as he cleans up an oil spill with mushrooms.
Cost: donations gratefully accepted to support the community work of Transition Berkeley

A wonderful opportunity to socialize, learn new stuff, eat great food (we have food trucks this year), hear some talented musicians, see the new Edible Garden, and take part in Albany’s annual Green extravaganza. Transition Albany is a sponsor this year and we’ve tried to extend the scope of tables offering information on how to create strong community and move out of the fossil fuel age.
If you would like to help out at our table for an hour or two please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
