Water Protection Event - AVL UU Church

11 May 2012

7 PM, Social Justice program at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of AVL (corner of Charlotte St. & Edwin Pl.) will offer: "Peru; Organic Agriculture & Water Protection in the Sacred Valley", a journey via colorful slides, with Cathy Holt telling of her 8 months in Peru - from initiating a Listening Project - to teaching a hands-on organic agriculture class at a local school. 

Woven throughout is native culture, beautiful ceremonies honoring Mother Earth, and the water - how to purify the now polluted Sacred River. 

Cathy has partnered with an organization aiming to provide permaculture classes this August. Permaculture is a system of designing with nature that helps to heal the land while improving productivity and sustainability, thus promoting community self-reliance. 

Discussion to follow; No admission; donations will help support upcoming Permaculture classes.
