Thursday Oct 18 6:30 PM – Pot Luck and Community Discussion – Permaculture and Food Security
Join us for another Pot Luck and Community Discussion on Thursday, October 18 at 6:30 PM at the Eco Barn.
This is what our speaker, Scott Vlaun, has to say about permaculture and food security.
“Our current industrialized food system is falling short in many ways. It is failing to feed a hungry world, is degrading to land and farmers and is a major contributor to the climate crisis. Permaculture Design holds the promise of regenerating our farmland, sequestering carbon, providing a more nutrient dense diet, empowering small farmers, and rebuilding communities.”
Join Scott Vlaun, Executive Director of the Center for an Ecology-Based Economy in Norway, Maine and Permaculture teacher at MUM for a slide presentation and discussion exploring the perils of our current system and taking a look at how some large scale permaculture sites in the region are becoming models for sustainability and regional food security.
