The Indianapolis General Organizing Committee of the Indiana IWW presents:
Permaculture Solutions to Climate Change: An Interactive Action-Oriented Workshop with Randall Jamrok
Are you interested in creating community-based solutions to the problems of climate chaos, the unfair economic system, and the destruction of an authentic sense of community? If so, Permaculture may have the answer for you! Join us at this interactive workshop where you can be part of a collective solution to our community’s problems, democratically discussing ideas and ways to implement system-changing solutions at the local level. Permaculturist Randy Jamrok will briefly introduce permaculture—a design process based in the science of Ecology as well as Indigenous wisdom—, discuss his recent experience at the International Permaculture Convergence (IPC) touring urban permaculture gardens, and then facilitate small group discussions using the booklet he printed and crowd-funded, called “Permaculture Solutions to Climate Change” which was the theme of the IPC. Participants will receive a copy of “Permaculture Solutions to Climate Change” which uses a checklist format to prioritize the goals that your community could most benefit from implementing.
