Project Butterfly, LA City Repair, Earthflow and Communitecture welcomes
Larry Santoyo of Earthflow [LA] and Mark Lakeman of City Repair [Portlank,
OR] for an intimate conversation on the Permaculture movement in LA &
Portland. The similarities, the differences & the possibilities…
Both Santoyo and Lakeman are considered luminaries/visionary pioneers in the
field of Permaculture, both have inspired and educated thousands and both
are dynamic and knowledgeable presenters. This will be a very intimate
discussion, as well as great opportunity to engage in this dialog.
Permaculture is a world-wide movement founded by Bill Mollison & David
Holmgren. Permaculture looks to Nature to recreate and mimic systems where
each element contributes to the success of the whole. Commonalities in all
ecosystems reflect guidelines for designers to use. The philosophy of
Permaculture is to reduce the impact that human settlements have on
non-renewable and renewable resources, while creating an abundant living
environment, catering to the needs of all living creatures.
Permaculture is a science developed through the observation and analysis of
natural systems. Through this analysis set structural patterns common to all
natural systems emerge. Permaculture design then applies these "Patterns" to
the development of sustainable human settlements, harmoniously integrating
landscape and people while providing food, energy, shelter, and other
material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. -From Bill Mollison's
website, www.tagari.com <http://www.tagari.com/>
A delicious vegetarian meal and drinks are included.
