Redesigning Civilization: Permaculture’s Vision for a Just and Sustainable World on Thursday, February 5th, 7pm at First Church in Jamaica Plain, 6 Eliot St. Welcome world-renown permaculture and ecology expert Toby Hemenway. It’s no secret that our society has become unsustainable. The ecological design approach known as permaculture offers powerful tools for the design of regenerative, fair ways to provide food, energy, livelihood, and other needs while letting humans share the planet with the rest of nature. Toby Hemenway is the author of Gaia’s Garden: A Guide to Home-scale Permaculture, which was named by the Washington Post as one of the 10 best gardening books of the year. His new book, The Permaculture City, will be coming out in mid-2015.
