         "In 1978 there was nothing quite like Permaculture. 
Twenty-eight years later Permaculture laps the globe, with over 4000 
projects across 120 countries. Australian biologist Bill Mollison, 
founder of the Permaculture movement, has taught and developed 
projects from the Arctic through Sub-tropics, and Equatorial regions 
on the planet. He has been named Australia's "Man of the Year", and 
in 1981 received the prestigious Right Livelihood Award. There are

         Join Santa Barbara Permaculture Network for an evening of 
three films featuring Bill Mollison, his life and work. In 1997 Bill 
Mollison came to California teaching a course in Ojai, CA, initiating 
a ground swell of interest that helped create many local 
organizations, such as South Coast Permaculture Guild, Santa Barbara 
Permaculture Network, the Ojai Institute, San Luis Obispo 
Permaculture Guild, Santa Cruz Permaculture Guild and others. Come 
hear the history of Permaculture and celebrate 10 years of 
Permaculture in Santa Barbara.

Films to be shown:

    * In Grave Danger of Falling Food: Earliest permaculture flick, 
humorous, campy in nature, describes the destructive nature of modern 
agriculture with Permaculture's proposal of a different system, one 
that mimics nature
    * The Global Gardener: Bill Mollison travels the globe viewing 
Permaculture sites & solutions on five continents
    * An Australian Biography: Bill Mollison the Man, complex in 
nature, brilliant in contributions, what makes him tick?

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.

The event takes place at the downtown Santa Barbara Public Library, 
40 E. Anapamu St, Santa Barbara, CA, on Thursday, December 13, 7pm 
for a donation of $5. No reservations are needed, for more info,
