SANTA BARBARA PERMACULTURE NETWORK
Presents:
Permaculture in the 21st Century
With David Holmgren

Tuesday, Aug 2, 2005
Evening Lecture 7- 9pm

Santa Barbara City College Campus Center
East Campus (Cafeteria)

In the 21st Century many challenges face us. We live in a world of 
unprecedented wealth from harvesting enormous storages of fossil fuels 
created by the earth over billions of years. In a world where this source 
of energy begins to decline, what innovative ways will we use to design a 
sustainable future?

On Tuesday, August 2, at 7pm, the Santa Barbara Permaculture Network hosts 
David Holmgren from Australia in his only Southern California appearance 
for a talk on Permaculture in the 21st Century, and a booksigning for his 
recently released book "Permaculture: Principles & Pathways Beyond 
Sustainability".


Holmgren is a permaculture designer and consultant, whose most recent work 
has focused on global permaculture strategies addressing the issue of 
"energy descent", a concept that acknowledges a future of reduced fossil 
fuels, but plans within a framework of gradual transition and adaptive 
strategies. In drawing links to permaculture, in future design for homes, 
cities, and agriculture, lessons learned will need to be applied 
everywhere, rather than just First World versus Third World type situations.

Permaculture is a design system based on ecological principles for creating 
sustainable human environments, and is one of the most holistic, integrated 
systems analysis and design methodologies found in the world. Originally 
coined from the words PERMAnent agriCULTURE, it has evolved to one of 
permanent or sustainable culture with consciously designed landscapes that 
mimic the patterns of nature.

David Holmgren (www.holmgren.com.au) is a designer and consultant, and 
co-originator of the permaculture concept with Australian biologist Bill 
Mollison, and co-author of "Permaculture One" (1978), a milestone in the 
application of environmental design to productive land use. Since 1978 he 
has authored numerous articles and several books, conducted workshops and 
courses, and consulted for urban and rural projects in Australia and New 
Zealand. His most recent book, "Permaculture:Principles and Pathways Beyond 
Sustainability", provides a broad conceptual framework for permaculture 
design education.
The event is a fundraiser for the Santa Barbara Permaculture Network, and 
takes place at the Santa Barbara City College Campus Center (East Campus), 
721 Cliff Drive, on Tuesday, August 2.

The lecture & booksigning, 7-9pm, cost is $15.
