Join us for two great opportunities to learn Permaculture from Peter Bane on Dec 15th! 


Peter Bane is the author of The Permaculture Handbook: Garden Farming for Town and Country (2012), an authoritative guide to the world's leading popular design science for North American readers. Long the publisher and editor of Permaculture Activistand a teacher and landscape designer who has worked in both temperate and tropical regions of the Americas, he is now pioneering a microfarm on the edge of Bloomington, Indiana. The talk will focus on how our towns and suburbs can incubate the new eco-agriculture and launch a food security revolution.  Co-hosted by the  Ethical Humanist Society of Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Orchard Project, and the Eastern PA Permaculture Guild.  Please RSVP at


A more intensive workshop on Urban Permaculture will be led by Peter Bane nad Phil Forsyth at Awbury Arboretum in the afternoon.  This workshop will introduce Permaculture strategies to build resilient and abundant cities and neighborhoods and focus in particular on the process of creating urban food forests.  Phil Forsyth is the Director of the Philadephia Orchard Project, a permaculture-based non-profit that plants community orchards in the city.  Workshop co-hosted by Awbury Arboretum, the Philadelphia Orchard Project, and the Eastern PA Permaculture Guild.  Space is limited, registration required at  


"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."
