Indigenous Permaculture invites you to an evening presentation with several indigenous speakers and native farmers from New Mexico in town for the Bioneers Conference. Hear native perspectives on food, seeds, land, and living. Stay for pupusas. Everyone should attend, especially agricultural and environmental students, agricultural department staff, people concerned for a healthy environment, landscapers, land owners, people thinking of purchasing land, farmers, ranchers, park, range management, and wildlife personnel, environmentalists, health department personnel, indigenous peoples, and urban gardeners.

Understanding the urgent needs of indigenous people and working with a multidisciplinary, diverse staff, Indigenous Permaculture (IP) works to meet the needs of communities in Central America--El Salvador, Guatemala, Belize--and South Dakota's Pine Ridge Wounjupi Food Project, Vigil Garden Project, and Green Community Leaders of the Bay Area. Indigenous Permaculture is strongly supported by the communities that we work with as well was our faithful allies. Please come and support our work. http://www.indigenous-permaculture.com
