Permaculture Movie Night at Allen Ave UU Church (Repeat!)

The public and members of the Portland Maine Permaculture group are invited to join with members of the Allen Avenue Unitarian Universalist Church in Portland for an "Intro" Movie Night, part of a series of awareness-raising permaculture events at the Church this summer. The Church is moving forward with permaculture as a unifying theme and principle for much of its upcoming work.

For this movie night, we'll be watching a rare video from Gardening Australia in which Josh Byrne completely transforms a "normal" property using permaculture design and techniques. This is a well-produced and entertaining film.

  • 6:30 Arrival & Sharing of Potluck Food (bring a dish to share and your own potluck kit [plate/bowl/utensils/napkin] for a zero waste event)
  • 7:00 Movie Begins
  • 8:15  Discussion facilitated by Lisa Fernandes

This is a repeat of the July 25 event.

    Wow! Merging of Permaculture with Church, I love it! May need to start attending if I can get Suns off. Lovely and informative movie as well.

    Thanks to Lisa for presenting the movie and fielding questions afterwards. I was pleased with the great turnout and glad to meet many new people from the Portland Permaculture Meetup group. Attendance was approximately 25 people.

    An excellent introduction to permaculture and the group. The video was highly entertaining. Who knew chickens were called Chooks in the Land Down Under!

    I enjoyed the gathering and I learned a little bit more about how permaculture can be applied to Allen Avenue Church. You're alway welcome at Allen Avenue.

    lovely venue with gracious hosts, delicious food shared, fun to meet new people, an inspiring movie for beginners like me...and likely for more advanced as well. Thank you to Lisa and hosts.

    Ian and I are actually a "Maybe", I'm sorry to say. We would definitely like to be there... but we both may have to be out of town for work... we'll know more as the date gets closer. If not, we do hope to join you for another event soon. ~Lesley
