Details

Join us for the Portland release of Toby's newest book, The Permaculture City! (You are not required to RSVP here to come, but by joining, you can stay connected about many other permaculture offerings in Portland!)

The Permaculture City provides a new way of thinking about urban living, with practical examples for creating abundant food, energy security, close-knit communities, local and meaningful livelihoods, and sustainable policies in our cities and towns. The same nature-based approach that works so beautifully for growing food—connecting the pieces of the landscape together in harmonious ways—applies perfectly to many of our other needs.

Toby Hemenway makes his Portland tour stop on September 11 at Warner Pacific College next to Mt. Tabor in SE Portland. This public talk is being offered as a suggested donation of $5-20, nobody turned away for lack of funds! There is no cost to RSVP and you will have the option to make a donation at the door.

Gaia’s Garden, Toby's first book, has been the best-selling permaculture book in the world for the last 7 years. The enlarged, updated 2nd edition is the winner of the 2011 Nautilus Gold Medal Award. Gaia’s Garden was also named one of the top ten gardening books of 2009 by The Washington Post.

Toby is also offering a day-long workshop on Urban & Sub-Urban Permaculture on Saturday, September 12th. Register by September 1st and save $15. Sign up now! (http://www.meetup.com/Portland-Permaculture-Meetup/events/224784053/)
