The Waterlution Hub Network, in conjunction with Verge Permaculture, presents:

Harvesting Our Future: Water, Permaculture & Systemic Change

Guest Provocateur Brad Lancaster, Author of Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond, and
Calgary Poet Laureate Kris Demeanor, with a water-related musical performance

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Doors open: 6 pm
Event: 6:30–9 pm

How do we create systemic change toward a better future? What are the water costs of energy and the energy costs of water?
“Watergy” is a term for the water-energy nexus. As an expert on rainwater harvesting, Brad sparks conversation on how to address systemic change around water and energy through a permaculture or ecological-design-system lens. Join us for an interactive evening of dialogue on how much water and energy is required in a water-scarce landscape whether in gardens, indoor plumbing, municipal infrastructure or industry.

Find inspiration for action at Waterlution’s first Calgary Hub gathering in 2012-2013, explore cross-sector collaboration and discover opportunities with fellow professionals.
