Sebastopol Grange
Solutions for a Healthy Planet

Humanity is more than ever threatened by its own actions; we hear a lot about the need to minimize footprints and reduce our impact. But what if our footprints were beneficial? What if we could meet human needs while increasing the health and well-being of our planet?

The documentary film “Inhabit: A Permaculture Perspective,” presented Friday, June 19, by the Sebastopol Grange, explores the many environmental issues facing us today and examines solutions that use “permaculture” to help shift our impact from destructive to regenerative. Permaculture is an ecological design process based on the replication of patterns found in nature. “Inhabit” provides an intimate look at permaculture peoples and practices ranging from rural, suburban, and urban landscapes. Permaculture Magazine calls the new documentary “the best film ever made about permaculture!” 

A panel discussion by leading permaculture experts following the screening will include: Starhawk, Earth Activist and renowned author; Brock Dolman,  Co-Founder, Occidental Arts and Ecology; Penny Livingston-Stark, Visionary Teacher and Designer, Commonweal; Erik Ohlsen, Executive Director, The Permaculture Skills Center and Emmett Brennan, Inhabit Assistant Director & Producer.

Tickets for the film, available at the door, cost $7-15; no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Doors and refreshments at 6:30pm; film at 7pm, Q&A and panel discussion at 8:30. The Sebastopol Grange is located at 6000 Sebastopol Ave., Hwy 12, Sebastopol CA 95472. For more information, visit sebastopolgrange.org.
