She has been featured in the film, Inhabit which we will show at the end of the day, followed by a question and answer with Susana. She was also recently featured in an article about Carbon Farming by Permaculture Author Eric Toensmeier on Yale's website for her impressive work The day will open up with regional leaders speaking on various subjects followed by break out sessions on different regional subjects.

    2:15-3:45 - Keynote: Susana Lein of Salamander Springs Farm: Susana will be sharing about her 15 years of off grid Permaculture Farming in Berea, KY and 25 + years of Permaculture experience. She built beautiful off grid structures, farmed for a living using Permaculture, Biodynamic & Organic techniques to increase her soil carbon content from 0% up to 18% in that time, developing a technique that could reverse climate change as it pulled that CO2 from the atmosphere, which provided a living off the land. She has been written about by well known Permaculture Author, Eric Toensmeier on Yale Universities Climate Solutions page.  We are excited to host her here at our convergence to build stronger regional ties with our growing Permaculture community here in the Tristate region.

    3:45 - 4:00 - Break


    4:00 - 5:30 - Inhabit the Film Showing- Inhabit is a feature length documentary introducing permaculture: a design method that offers an ecological lens for solving issues related to agriculture, economics, governance, and on. The film presents a vast array of projects, concepts, and people, and it translates the diversity of permaculture into something that can be understood by an equally diverse audience. For those familiar, it will be a call to action and a glimpse into what's possible - what kind of projects and solutions are already underway. For those unfamiliar, it will be an introduction to a new way of being and a new way of relating to the Earth. For everyone, it will be a reminder that humans are capable of being planetary healing forces.

    5:30 - 6:00 - Film Q&A with Susana and Local Permaculturists
