Join us for this inspiring and informative evening where we’ll show the film “Permaculture: the Growing Edge” and hear from local gardening representatives and experts on how you can tap into local opportunities for growing food.

The lineup includes Victory Lee, People’s Victory Garden Program and 4th year of the Victory Garden Challenge; Lotta Chan and Alisa Rose, co-chairs of the Landuse and Community Garden Working Group of the Berkeley Climate Action Coalition; Alexa Hauser and Catherine Sutton, Transition Albany, sharing about the Memorial Park Permaculture Landscape project; and Joy Moore, co-founder Farm Fresh Choice and Garden Coordinator for Berkeley Technology Academy.

The film introduces us to inspiring examples of projects, and includes a visit to David Holmgren’s own homestead, tracking deer with naturalist Jon Young, sheet mulching an inner-city garden with Hunters Point Family, transforming an intersection into a gathering place with City Repair and joining mycologist Paul Stamets as he cleans up an oil spill with mushrooms.
