Film & Food Night: "Permaculture: The Growing Edge"

Our Film & Food nights are a chance for us to come together for both learning and getting to know each other better.  We ask that you come with an open mind and heart to new information and new friends.

We hope that our film choices will teach everyone something they didn't know before and/or challenge ideas you have held.  In our potluck and discussion we will also be looking to give everyone a chance to share and feel a part of the group.  We believe that everyone has something worthwhile to contribute and the discussion leaders will help to facilitate the event so that there is space for all to share some part of themselves and what they bring.

These discussions are an opportunity to voice initial reactions to the film and topics at hand.  We hope the discussion leads to opportunities for further conversations amongst all there, on the website afterwards, and via further research each person might do.

LOGISTICS:  We will start with the film (feel free to come early to get settled), then have a potluck.  Please bring a "potluck kit" - dish, bowl, cup, silverware, napkin - as well as your potluck contribution.  We will be able to plug in crockpots, heat some items up, make hot water for tea.

Parking on Sunday is easy there - go to UNH's C Lot, across Mill Rd from Waysmeet.

We will be taking donations to cover costs for the event - purchasing the film and, in some cases, a screening license cost.

ABOUT THE FILM: "Permaculture: The Growing Edge" (2010, 43 mins) an antidote to environmental despair, a hopeful and practical look at a path to a viable, flourishing future.

The film introduces us to inspiring examples of permaculture projects, and includes a visit to David Holmgren’s own homestead, tracking deer with naturalist Jon Young, sheet mulching an inner-city garden with Hunters Point Family, transforming an intersection into a gathering place with City Repair and joining mycologist Paul Stamets as he cleans up an oil spill with mushrooms. We interview some of the figures in the Permaculture movement, including David Holmgren, Penny Livingston-Stark, James Stark, Mark Lakeman, Dr. Elaine Ingham, Maddy Harland, and others.

Permaculture is a sustainable system of earth care that offers solutions to many of our grave environmental problems and a hopeful, proactive vision of change. The Permaculture movement, started by Australians Bill Mollison and David Holmgren in the 1970a, is now a worldwide network of skilled ecological designers, teachers, food growers, natural builders, environmental activists and visionaries.

Sponsored by the Greater Seacoast Permaculture Meetup Group & The United Campus Ministry to UNH

    Hi all,
    If a few folks can come again with material to do some makeshift curtains, that would be GREAT! Say, 4:45? Lena? Deb? Anyone else?

    Hello everyone,
    I am parting with my blackberry bushes. They are 3 years old with large tasty berries. I am replacing them with the thornless kind. If you like to have them please come and get them over this weekend. I live in Lee, NH. If you are coming to a movie night tomorrow my home is 10 min drive from Durham.
