February 15: Inhabit - A Permaculture Perspective — Permaculture is a design method that offers an ecological lens for solving issues related to agriculture, economics and governance.

For those familiar, it will be a call to action and a glimpse into what's possible - what kind of projects and solutions are already underway.

For everyone, it will be a reminder that humans are capable of being planetary healing forces.
