INHABIT: A Permaculture Perspective
*Friday, August 21^st*6:00 p.m.

*Location:*Schuyler County Cooperative Extension, 323 Owego St., Montour 
Falls, NY 14865

Ten years ago in the Northeast one could barely find a permaculture 
class, much less a site that demonstrated permaculture principles and 
techniques in action. Today there is a very different story emerging, 
and examples abound of permaculture applied to farms, gardens, urban 
environments, social systems, and more.

In 2013, filmmakers Costa Boutsikaris and Emmett Brennan took a journey 
around the northeast and midwest U.S. and combined their eye for beauty 
with their passionate interest in permaculture to create a feature 
length documentary, INHABIT: A Permaculture Perspective.

The film will be shown at the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schuyler 
County this Friday, August 21 at 6pm to kick off the2^nd Annual 
Permaculture Site Tours on Saturday, August 22, where over a dozen sites 
in Ithaca, Syracuse, and surrounding areas will open their doors to the 

Sites will be open from 9 -- 12pm or 1 -- 4pm. A reception at the Finger 
Lakes Cider House in Interlaken, NY will follow from 5 -- 8pm with food, 
raffle, and live music. (

The film presents a vast array of projects, concepts, and people 
translating the diversity of permaculture expressions into a message 
easily understood by an equally diverse audience. To those familiar with 
permaculture, it will be a call to action and a glimpse into what's 
possible; what kind of projects and solutions are already underway. For 
those unfamiliar, it will be an introduction to a new way of being and a 
new way of relating to the Earth. For everyone, it will be a reminder 
that humans are capable of being planetary healing forces.
