Submitted by Sue Crothers

Learn reasons for applying a permaculture way of thinking to how we live

The Thoughtful Living Series, a series of community discussions sponsored by the River Forest Parks Foundation & the River Forest Public Library, will resume on Wednesday, October 26th, at the River Forest Library, 735 Lathrop Ave in River Forest.  This month, the series will feature a presentation on Permaculture:  Fundamentals & Principles.

Learn the essence of, and reasons for, applying a permaculture way of thinking to how we live.

What permaculturists do:

  • strive to grow food just about anywhere,
  • repair environmentally damaged lands,
  • design lovely and durable green buildings,
  • produce power,
  • run successful, people-oriented businesses
  • and build authentic community.

They accomplish this by using the same fundamental design principles and by applying a fundamental permaculture ethic:  Care of people. Care of the earth. Sharing all surplus.

Presenter for the evening - Jody Luna

The presenter for the evening will be Jody Luna, a 2007 graduate of Midwest Permaculture’s Design Certificate course. She graduated from Illinois Institute of Technology with a Master’s of Architecture in 2006. She runs an environmental design firm, Conscious Designs, and teaches at Illinois Institute of Art in Schaumburg, IL.
