Urban Roots is sponsoring a screening of “Inhabit: A Permaculture Perspective,” which explains how this design method offers an ecological lens for solving problems in agriculture.

The movie will be followed by a panel to explore the differences between people-centered agriculture and industrial agriculture, and highlight how indigenous communities and cultures have been incorporating permaculture-type food production for generations. The panel will be moderated by Edwin Marty, Food Policy Manager for the City of Austin, with panelists Raj Patel, author of Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System and a research professor in the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas; Sharon Mays, a member of the Austin/Travis County Sustainable Food Policy Board; and Lea Scott, Farm Director for Urban Roots.

Tickets available online. All ticket proceeds benefit Urban Roots
