David Holmgren is to share the talk stage with John Seed in the fund raising evening for the Chikukwa project in Zimbabwe. The forum is entitled “Can permaculture help the global majority conserve rainforests?” and will be held at Melbourne’s CERES.

An evening to inform, inspire and to encourage discussion about the connection between the deforestation of the earth’s rainforests, unsustainable agriculture, and the global majority, and the part permaculture can play to protect our rainforests and ensure food security for the human population.  This is an evening benefit  for the Zimbabwe Chikukwa Project and includes a short film about how 22 years of permaculture has led  a community of 7000 Zimbabwe villagers from malnutrition and hunger to abundance.

Also appearing on the stage for the fundraiser presented by the Earthsoulscience Co-op Ltd. is John Seed, the veteran activist who has been working for the protection of the world’s forests since 1979. His presentation will be eye opening.

The fundraising evening for Chikukwa presented by the Earthsoulscience Co-op Ltd. kicks off at 7.30pm at CERES on September 25.

Enquiries: Anna Kumashov 0403995152.
