Toby Hemenway- Urban Permaculture
Permaculture in the City
with Toby Hemenway
October 4th 2pm-4pm

World Beat Center
2100 Park Blvd, San Diego, CA 92101

We are excited to host best selling permaculture author, Toby Hemenway, for a presentation and book signing for his newest book, The Permaculture City.  This is a not be be missed event for inspiration and learning how to create sustainable and resilient cities!
More than a fad or mere buzzword, permaculture offers positive solutions for many of the environmental and social challenges confronting modern society. And nowhere are those empowering remedies more needed and desired than in our cities.
In his latest book, bestselling permaculture author Toby Hemenway (Gaia’s Garden) demonstrates that the same nature-based approach that works to grow food—connecting the pieces of the landscape together in harmonious ways—applies perfectly to our need for water, shelter, energy, livelihood, and community.
As Hemenway demonstrates in The Permaculture City, urban permaculture is about much more than gardening in the city. Growing food is only a small part of the challenge we face in solving our essential and increasingly urgent problem of coexisting with a finite planet and with each other.
Permaculture’s ethics lead us on a path to ecologically and socially sound decisions, ruling out the acts and ideas that harm people and planet. Its principles, however, do more than just rule out foolishness, they encourage us to think like an ecosystem, helping us spot solutions that enhance diversity, resilience, productivity, interconnectedness, and elegance and encourage lean use of resources.
