And a screening of Starhawk’s new movie – Permaculture: The Growing Edge

Permaculture: The Growing Edge is 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 projects, including a visit to
Permaculture co-founder 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 key figures in the Permaculture
movement, including David Holmgren, Penny Livingston-Stark, James Stark, Paul
Stamets, Mark Lakeman, Dr. Elaine Ingham, Maddy Harland, and others.

$5-10 donation requested for the above event to cover space and equipment rental.
No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

POTLUCK – bring a simple dish or snack to share.

Followed by the quarterly
Quarterly Full Moon Women’s Dance at 7:30-9:30pm
with Dianne Brakarsh & Irene Spencer
Please join us for our next full moon dance on March 19.
In these challenging times, it is more important than ever to occasionally
take some time to rebalance and replenish our energy stores. What better
way to do that than to join a community of women honoring the natural
rhythms of the season? The wheel of time turns no matter the current
political landscape; come to celebrate the return of spring and to honor the
earth and each other.
$20 donation requested (separate admission from the above event).
All proceeds benefit Women for Women International and their Haiti relief efforts.
