Talk: 'Permaculture for Liberation' with Toby Hemenway NEW DATE
Time: 8/30/2016 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Venue: 6000 Sebastopol Ave, Sebastopol, CA, 95472



Ever feel overwhelmed with the bombardment of political rhetoric, environmental crises, and social injustices facing our world? Want to be part of the solution? 

Join us for an inspiring evening with Toby Hemenway as he shares how permaculture design can help you restyle your life and community to be more vibrant, regenerative, and honestly…more sane.

Permaculture isn’t just a path to a sustainable and healthy food system; it is a decision making framework that can help us build a whole new culture, one based in abundance rather than scarcity. 

Toby will trace the history of our disconnection from nature and our loss of self-reliance and self-determination, and then offer a toolkit for rebuilding those skills. Permaculture offers solutions, and Toby’s presentation, along with a special introduction by Daily Acts’ Trathen Heckman, will offer plenty of tools, methods, and inspiring examples of people and communities who have re-wilded, rebuilt, and renewed themselves and their place. If you’ve appreciated Toby’s series of talks and videos on permaculture and civilization, you’ll want to see this significant new chapter and learn how you can take action.

Toby Hemenway is the author of the award-winning Gaia’s Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture, the best-selling permaculture book in the world, and a new book on creating urban sustainability, The Permaculture City. Toby teaches about regenerative design and permaculture at universities and conferences all over the world. He has been an adjunct professor at Portland State University, Scholar-in-Residence at Pacific University, and has taught over 70 permaculture design courses. He and his wife, Kiel, live in Sebastopol. 

Toby is also the lead instructor for Daily Acts' Permaculture Design Certificate Course (PDC) which will provide practical tools and support to transform your life, work, and community. If you’ve been thinking about taking the PDC, this talk will help you get to know Toby and Daily Acts. Starting on October 8th, 2016 you can join us one weekend a month for six months to learn about and experience community-based permaculture first hand.
