Sunday 13th May 7.30pm: Permaculture Film & Talk

Permaculture-Tree-DarkGrey[1]Following our talk by Maddy Harland, editor of Permaculture Magazine – we are continuing the permaculture theme with a screening of the 2011 documentary ‘Anima Mundi’, the first feature documentary by film maker Peter Charles Downey. This will be followed by a discussion of permaculture principles led by Graham Burnett, permaculture teacher and author.

As the London Permaculture Network explains ‘Permaculture can be best described as a collaborative (wiki-style) project in which people around the world collectively design solutions to the problems of building a sustainable future.’ Its theories underpin the ideas behind the Transition Network, of which Ealing Transition is a part.

‘Anima Mundi’ is an independently produced, homegrown, grassroots documentary made with very low embodied fossil-fuel energy. It is not a ‘How To’ video, it is a ‘Where To’ documentary showcasing alternatives like Earthships, Permaculture, Permablitz, retrofitting the suburbs, lifeboats, localized food production and currencies, planned energy descent and Gaian philosophy.

After the screening, there will an opportunity to explore the relevance and significance of permaculture principles and practice in creating a sustainable future.

The event will be held at St Mary’s Church, St Mary’s Road, Ealing, W5 5RH. Entry to the event is free but donations to help us cover costs will be welcome.
