Redesigning Civilization: Permaculture’s Vision for a Just and Sustainable World with Toby Hemenway

February 5, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join the Jamaica Plain Forum in welcoming world reknown permaculture and ecology expert Toby Hemenway.  

It’s no secret that our society has become unsustainable. Modern agriculture, industry and finance all extract more than they give back, and the Earth is starting to show the strain. How did we get in this mess? And, more importantly, what can we do to help our culture get back on track?

The ecological design approach known as permaculture offers powerful tools for the design of regenerative, fair ways to provide food, energy, livelihood, and other needs while letting humans share the planet with the rest of nature. This presentation will give you insight into why our culture has become fundamentally unsustainable, and offers ecologically based solutions that can help create a just and sustainable society.

RELATED: Jamaica Plain New Economy Transition (JP NET) and Boston Nature Center are hosting Toby Hemeway for a day long workshop titled“Urban Permaculture for a Fear-Free Future” on Saturday, February 7th, from 9:30-4:30pm.  For registration info please click here.
