Dear New York Permaculture, Subscribe Me!

Tiffany has forwarded this email to you with the following message: This could be an interesting way to see the city from another perspective as we look at building more resilient communities and looking for ways to stack functions, build invisible structures (connect community members), and increase local food security. The event is free, just show up!

Dear Gil,
 

Walk the length of Broadway with us:

"Eat Your Sidewalk" with designers and foraging enthusiasts Petia Morozov and Iain Kerr. Write your own poem while you walk with Harlem-based poet E.J. MacAdams. Hear about the latest research into NYC's climate vulnerability from scientist Stuart Gaffin.  "Insert (Your Idea) Here" with artist Eve Mosher.

Join us on a 2-part walk covering the length of Broadway as part of MAS' Jane's Walks Weekend on Saturday May 4th (Bowling Green to 72nd St) and Sunday May 5th (Van Cortlandt Park to 72nd St).

 

A notable group of artists, scientists, cultural and community representatives will discuss a variety of issues along the corridor that demonstrate how sustainability can be made tangible through the arts.
