This kind of fundamental ecological transformation, he says, would have the most immediate impact on climate change, “and could change poverty into prosperity.” The film will be shown Friday, March 28, in Andrews Hall at the Sonoma Community Center, 276 E. Napa St. and includes a post-movie discussion.
“Viewers can expect to be encouraged as they glimpse the wonders of permaculture and organics, and how these strategies can effectively address the many challenges facing our planet’s floral habitat,” said Liz Treacy of SCC’s Center for Sustainable Living, which is co-sponsoring the screening with Transition Sonoma Valley. “Watching this inspiring work with other environmentally sensitive viewers can only help us see real solutions for our Valley, and around the globe.” 6:30 reception, 7 p.m. film. $10-$12. 938-4626. “http://svbo.org”>Svbo.org.
