Everyone is welcome to a free screening of the film Inhabit at the Frances Morrison Central Library – 311 – 23rd Street East in Saskatoon on Thursday February 4 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.

Inhabit explores the many environmental and agricultural issues facing us today and examines solutions that are being applied using the ecological design process called permaculture. Permaculture is a design lens that uses the principles found in ecosystems to help shift our impact from destructive to regenerative. Focused mostly on the Northeastern and Midwestern regions of the United States, Inhabit provides an intimate look at permaculture peoples and practices ranging from rural, suburban, and urban landscapes.

Learn more about permaculture at a one-day Introduction to Permaculture Workshop on Sunday, February 7 at the Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre – 202 Avenue C South from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. 

This Introduction to Permaculture Workshop is a great place to both start and deepen your knowledge of permaculture.

The day will begin at 9:00 AM and go until about 5:00 PM, with a few breaks during the day, including lunch (which is not included but there are plenty of places to go nearby and there is a small kitchen in the training facility).

As part of the training, you will have an opportunity to do some design on your own yard, so bring along rough measurements and an idea of your sun exposure and yard slope. If you do not have a yard, or like your yard as it is, you’ll be able to join up with someone else to help them with a design.

Cost is $70 for Permaculture Saskatchewan members/$80 for non-members.

Online registration will open via Picatic very soon. We will send a special email notification to those on our mailing list and post to our website and Facebook when it is ready. Questions? Email
