Toby Hemenway, author and permaculturalist, will speak about his latest book, The Permaculture City: Regenerative Design for Urban, Suburban, and Town Resilience, which provides practical examples for creating abundant food, energy security, close-knit communities, local and meaningful livelihoods, and sustainable policies in our cities and towns.
