This evening we’ll be watching a video lecture from Toby Hemenway. This is a follow up video to the lecture that we screened this past January. Here’s a link to that video lecture titled, “Toby Hemenway – How Permaculture Can Save Humanity and the Earth, but Not Civilization” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nLKHYHmPbo). In that video, Toby Hemenway describes some of the history of how non-sustainable agriculture took over our society and altered our civilization.  This follow up video that we’ll be screening discusses some of the ways we can redesign civilization to better suit our needs without exploiting our environment.

Bring some food to share if you’d like. The video is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes, and we’ll have time afterwards to discuss.

Description of the video:
Modern agriculture, industry and finance all extract more than they give back, and the Earth is starting to show the strain. How did we get in this mess and what can we do to help our culture get back on track? 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. This presentation will give you insight into why our culture has become fundamentally unsustainable, and offers ecologically based solutions that can help create a just and sustainable society. This is the sequel to Toby’s popular talk, “How Permaculture Can Save Humanity and The Planet, but not Civilization.” A related article is at http://tobyhemenway.com/697-the-last-nomads-and-the-culture-of-fear/
