Osoyoos Desert Society 2016 Winter Program Series – PLANT LIFE & FOOD FORESTS – Movie & An Expert
Throughout the year, the Osoyoos Desert Society offers a variety of educational programs, including lecture series and hands-on workshops. Through its programs the Society strives to increase public awareness and knowledge, inform attitudes, and provide opportunities for the public to get involved and have a positive impact on their environment.
Join us for ‘What Plants Talk About,’ a documentary integrating hard core science with a light-hearted look at plant behavior and the surprisingly intricate and busy lives plants lead. After the film, Richard Walker will talk about food forest gardening, a way to grow food and medicine plants in a sustainable way, using less water and trapping carbon. In his words, how to “garden for 1000 years.” This is based on nature’s systems as well as successful indigenous systems used over the ages. A book signing will follow the talk. http://www.desert.org/
