July 21, 2005: Beyond Sustainability Lecture at the University of North

Carolina at Chapel Hill

Chapel Hill, NC - David Holmgren, the Australian co-originator of the
concept and practice of "Permaculture," will give a free public lecture
at the North Carolina Botanical Garden's Totten Center in Chapel Hill on
Thursday, July 21st, starting at 7 pm.  A short reception featuring
locally produced foods will follow.  Space is limited; participants are
asked to call in advance to reserve a seat for the lecture:

In the early 1970s, David Holmgren wrote a sophomore term thesis that,
when turned into a book, launched the advent of Permaculture, a
sustainable living methodology.  He has been teaching, writing about,
and living this philosophy ever since.  He is currently on a four-month,
around-the-world teaching tour.  His lecture will answer the question,
"What is permaculture?"  He will link this with potential solutions to
pressing concerns about our current high-energy lifestyles, which are
dependent on a continuing supply of cheap petroleum-something that many
believe is a rapidly disappearing reality. 

While visiting the area, Holmgren will also be touring some of Orange
and Chatham Counties' farms and developments that are working with
permaculture principles.
