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.
