Peter Bane Speaks at Two Rivers Coalition Meeting

December 10, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

2RC Annual Meeting Poster 2014

Peter Bane, the author of “The Permaculture Handbook” will be the guest speaker at this year’s Two Rivers Coalition annual meeting. Doors open at 6:30. Meeting from 7-9PM.

Peter Bane is a native Illinoisan who grew up in the university city of Champaign-Urbana. A frequent speaker and conference presenter, he is the author of The Permaculture Handbook: Garden Farming for Town and Country, and has published Permaculture Activist magazine since 1990. Familiar with tropical and temperate systems in North America, Hawaii, and the Caribbean, Peter has taught more than 1500 students in 80+ courses spread widely across the US, Canada, and as far afield as Chile, Argentina and Trinidad-Tobago, for more than 20 years. He holds the Diploma of Permaculture Design for teaching, media, and community service from both the Permaculture Institute – USA (2014) and the British Academy Worknet (2005).

Peter Bane speaking locally is a special event, and one well worth attending. If you don’t know Peter, he’s been working tirelessly to advance Permaculture for longer than some of us have been alive. He’s an excellent speaker, one of the foremost PC teachers in the eastern US, and the publisher of Permaculture Activist, in print since 1985 and the only periodical of its kind during the last 30 years. If you have a chance to take a PDC where Peter is teaching, I would highly recommend it, as I’m sure Sam would. His recent book The Permaculture Handbook is also wonderful. Here’s a video of one of his presentations, in case you can’t make it to this meeting (on a Weds. night in early December):
