Peter Bane Talk & Book Signing - Garden Farming Economy



Meet and hear Peter Bane, long time permaculture practitioner, teacher publisher, and author share his perspective on how local food will form the basis of a new economy that will occupy most Americans for the remainder of the century. Peter will discuss the emergence of garden farms in and around cities and how they can help us stabilize both our economy and the climate. Using permaculture, or ecological design, to create synergistic household systems, we can buffer our homes and families against the difficulties of volatile energy prices and future economic crises. The talk will focus on how our towns and suburbs can incubate the new eco-agriculture and launch a food security revolution. Hosted by The Resiliency Institute, a non-profit organization transforming the suburbs into resilient communities through permaculture design and education.

Copies of The Permaculture Handbook: Garden Farming for Town and Country will be available for sale ($45) and the author will be signing. Please bring cash or check.

“For readers with a quarter-acre lot or a small farm, in the city, suburbs, or beyond, The Permaculture Handbook offers a clear and comprehensive picture of what low-impact, high-satisfaction living can look like in the post-petroleum age. Starting now, readers can locate themselves easily within the narrative of growing land care, regenerative community, and a robust and capable household economy. Learn how to reduce dependence on money, on fossil fuels, and on distant supplies of critical resources. The book answers such vital questions as: How much food will the family need; what kinds of crops are most important and valuable to grow; where can we invest our scarce financial resources for the biggest return; how can the farm enhance local ecosystems and communities; what tools and machines are really needed to take care of the land; and a thousand others. More importantly, it teaches the reader how to make complex decisions about land and livelihood consistent with new and emerging economic and ecological realities.” Peter Bane

    We look forward to seeing all of you tonight at 7 pm at The Resiliency Institute. Please bring a friend. We would love to have everyone hear Peter's talk.

    The weather has made conditions on the farm wet and muddy, so boots are suggested.

    See you tonight!
