Our Bodies, Our Planet: The Human Life Cycle from a Permaculture Perspective

Let's look at the brighter and greener side of dying with Valerie Piedmont, Executive Director of The Sustainability Project in Gilsum NH.

According to Piedmont, "Death for humans is essentially the same biological process that occurs for every living thing. Conceivably, the dying process and death of each one of us could have an impact on the environment equal to that of a tree falling in the forest."  

The talk will cover the social, environmental and resource costs of the current medical system and focus on ways we can care for the planet by embracing every stage of life, from cradle to grave.

The presentation will be followed by a reception with snacks and and opportunity to connect further with others attending.

Free and open to all - but donations will be happily accepted!

This is the first in our two-part "Dying Green" series cosponsored by The Seacoast Permaculture Group, The Durham Unitarian Universalist Fellowship & The Durham Community Church, UCC.

Valerie Piedmont lives on an off-grid homestead in Gilsum, NH.  She established The Sustainability Project, a non-profit education organization promoting a love of nature, environmental stewardship, and caring communities. Along with her husband, she owns and operates Green Energy Options in Keene encouraging independent power production and natural resource conservation through responsible technology.  She also started the Monadnock Regain Permaculture Meetup.

      Hi Cassandra. No, we already ordered and they have arrived at my home. I brought the seeds with me to give to the people who ordered.

    I won't be able to make it after all as I have birthday dinner to attend at almost the same time! I'll be excited for the next one though :)
