Energy Flows: From Garden to Community: A Blue Heart & Permaculture Guild Potluck

Mon, June 10, 2024 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Place for Sustainable Living 1121 64th St, Oakland, CA 94608

Join us for a unique Bay Area Permaculture Guild gathering where we’ll explore how permaculture’s principles of energy flow extend beyond our gardens into our social and economic lives.

In permaculture, we design systems where each element supports another—just as your compost feeds your tomatoes. But how do we apply this to our community? When you listen to a friend, volunteer at a workday, or support a local project, you’re part of this beautiful exchange.

Eva Orbuch, Oakland community organizer and Blue Heart’s Program Director, will share stories from Blue Heart’s partners—innovators in urban agriculture and community resilience.

Together, we’ll discuss:

Seeing our skills, time, and money as forms of energy
The psychology of giving and receiving
Abundance vs. scarcity in resource sharing

Please bring a dish to share. Our potluck isn’t just food—it’s community energy in action! Whether you’re a seasoned permaculturist or just curious, join us. Let’s explore how by valuing all our resources—especially each other—we cultivate a more sustainable, connected community.
