Permaculture in Africa: A Slideshow and Adventure - Beginning in Ethiopia, Tim Krupnik spent the better part of last year hitch-hiking through Africa. His interest in sustainable agriculture and development led him through 11 different countries. During his travels he visited numerous farms, development groups, and Non-Governmental Organizations, most of which held Permaculture as their main focus. From beekeeping and by-hand paper recycling projects in Malawi, to urban agriculture in South Africa, this slideshow is a journey into the science of sustainable agriculture. You’ll also see Agroforestry in Rwanda, seaweed production off the coast of Zanzibar, and farming and bio-gas production in Ethiopia. Not only will Tim offer a kaleidoscope of amazing images from far-off places (including a good number more than mentioned above), he will delve into the sociopolitics of Development and Environment in Africa. This presentation is suited for gardeners, farmers, Permaculturalists and people interested in development issues. You do not need to have an interest in Africa to attend — many of the Permaculture projects shown hold lessons in sustainability that all of us can learn from. At the Ecology Center , 2530 San Pablo (@Dwight), Berkeley, from 7 - 9pm. This is a benefit for the FAMBIDZANAI PERMACULTURE CENTER in Zimbabwe that trains rural farmers (mainly women) in organic farming techniques. Cost: $5 - $10, sliding scale. No one turned away for lack of funds. Info: call Tim 510-653-7401 or email soilfirst@tao.ca or 510-548-2220 x233.
