I'm writing in representation of Permaculture BC to spread the word about
an upcoming and very exciting workshop around the topic of Food and
Medicine Forests. I would like for the event to be posted on the
Permaculture Mailing List. I think this fits in very well with your
demographic and trust it would add value to your network.

Please let me know if/how this can happen. I'll attach the information in
the email for your ease but let me know if you have any questions or need
anything from me.

Thank you kindly!

Evening Talk #2: Prescribing from the food forest - May 18th - 7pm
This BC physician shares her experience both through anecdote and the
latest science on the healing value of locally grown, nutrient rich food.
Having lived and worked half of her life in Sub- Saharan Africa she
compares the malnutrition issues in so -called developing countries to the
very real malnutrition epidemic of metabolic syndrome, heart disease,
stroke and cancer that we in Canada are challenged by. She demystifies the
theories around the causes of these illnesses and gives good evidence to
the fact that, at its core, the roots of this is nutritional deficiency is
conventional food. As a psychotherapist she underscores the empowerment
that food autonomy gives to individuals, communities and societies.
