Film poster for Inhabit, a documentary about permaculture. The idea of living as one with the Earth is nothing new, but brought more and more into perspective.

Film Night at EMCS

Film presents the idea of man and the Earth living peacefully

Awareness Film Night will present a Permaculture Evening on Feb. 10, featuring the film Inhabit followed by a panel of permaculture maestros.

As we realize that the habits of endless growth, people trying to rule nature and disregard for our fellow Earthmates are wreaking havoc in our world, it is time to explore different ways of being.

Inhabit introduces permaculture, a way of living that involves observing the patterns and interactions of the natural life around you and applying that to whatever you wish to create.

If that sounds a tad obscure, the film presents a vast array of people and projects in order to translate the diversity of permaculture into something that can be understood by an equally diverse audience.

For those familiar with the concept it will be a call to action and a glimpse into what’s possible, including the projects and solutions that are already underway.

Others who are being exposed to the concept for the first time, it will be an introduction to a new way of relating to Mother Earth.

If there are still questions there will be a post screening discussion with local permaculture maestros Tony St. Pierre and Erin Newell of Cast Iron Farm, a collectively run permaculture farm in Sooke.

The event will be held from 7 to 9:30 p.m. in the Edward Milne Community School theatre.

Admission is by donation.
