Invitation to a presentation by Janet Millington on Permaculture Solutions to Climate Change and Peak Oil - Tuesday November 17
How can we get permanency in our culture when so much of our natural environment is changing and our natural resources are depleting?
For more than 30 years, permaculture has been providing solutions to the very problems it pre-empted back then.
Janet Millington, permaculture practitioner, author and teacher, led with Sonya Wallace, the first transition initiative in Australia to an energy descent future for the Sunshine Coast.
Learn from Janet how permaculture can help you transition your home, family and community from oil dependency to local resilience in response to climate change and peak oil.
