Can #permaculture regenerate our cities?
imagining post-capitalist urban foodscapes
At coFood Vancouver we’re learning how permaculture design principles can help us imagine a world where urban food systems can challenge the dominant unending-growth paradigm.
Please join us for a long table dinner and presentation on “Understanding & Undermining the Growth Paradigm” by Christopher Nowlin, followed by an interactive design charrette using permaculture tools from Gaiacraft.
We will share a three-course meal featuring salad and herbal iced tea from the coFood Collaborative Garden, a selection of tacos from La Tacqueria, and handcrafted raw vegan desserts.
Monday, September 18 / 6:30–9:30 p.m.
The Artiste / 2050 Scotia Street
Buzz 160 / Unit 440
We are always growing our circle of coFood friends! Let us notify you about future coFood events.
beyond the business card
In the spirit of getting to know one another, we’ll go beyond the business card by sharing everyone’s contact information after the event. We hope this will allow more freedom for people to explore genuine connections in the time we have together at coFood events, and beyond.
