ifarm is partnering with Greenbelt- Essex County’s Land Trust to host a screening of INHABIT: A Permaculture Perspective.
Today we hear a great deal about the ways humans cause damage to the planet. But what if humans could meet their needs while healing the earth? INHABIT: A Permaculture Perspective takes a look at the environmental challenges we face and the answers permaculture can offer. It was filmed in 2015 and was an official selection of the Yale Environmental Film Festival and and Princeton Environmental Film Festival.
In short, it is a great film. Following the screening, there will be a short presentation and garden tour demonstrating permaculture at ifarm and simple steps homeowners can take to create gardens that (1) produce beautiful fruits, berries, vegetables and herbs, (2) are more self-sustaining, (3) require less labor, and (4) support pollinators in more powerful ways. The screening will be held indoors in our heated Carriage House.
Children under age 3 have free admission.
Humanity is more than ever threatened by its own actions; we hear a lot about the need to minimize footprints and to 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? This is the premise behind permaculture: a design process based on the replication of patterns found in nature. INHABIT explores the many environmental issues facing us today and examines solutions that are being applied using the ecological design lens of permaculture. Focused mostly on the northeastern and midwestern regions of United States, INHABIT provides an intimate look at permaculture peoples and practices ranging from rural, suburban, and urban landscapes.
