Designing Resilient Communities: Book Signing and Talk with Peter Bane

Come out this Friday,December 14th Book for a book signing and talk with Peter Bane.

 

Designing Resilient Communities: How our Towns and Suburbs can Incubate the new Eco-Agriculture and Launch a Food Security Revolution

Do not miss this rare opportunity to meet Peter Bane, esteemed publisher and editor of Pemaculture Activist magazine as he joins us at The Commons Brooklyn for a talk and book signing. Peter's new book, The Permaculture Handbook: Garden Farming for Town and Country is a distillation of his decades of work and has been called both "the most accessible, most practically useful permaculture book out there" and "a powerfully visionary work." A prolific writer in journals and collections on forestry, building and all things sustainable, Peter will be sharing his deep wisdom and wit from his more than 20 years in the field of Permaculture. He has taught thousands of students all over the world including New York's own Andrew Faust who considers Bane a mentor.

An excerpt from the book...

"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."

We are thrilled to welcome him!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
