Urban Resiliency workshop by Osmany April 14th

Hello everyone,
Below is the program for the Perpetual Brooklyn Resiliency event I’m holding this Sunday April 14th. We’ll be re-screening the film “Garbage Warrior” which documents architect Michael Reynolds journey of creating sustainable architecture. It’s very inspirational to see a dirty architect who’s life purpose has been to embody the ecological rhythms of nature into a building for the past 40 years; before it was “cool” to be “green”. I’ve worked with Earthship BioTecture for the past 3 years traveling around building off grid sustainable homes. This film is an accurate portrait of a radical architect and his fantastic yet practical designs.
The second part of the day we invite my friend Gennaro Brooks who runs EcoBrooklyn, a design/build company dedicated to “green retrofitting” of the urban landscape. Talk to our peer Michael Dicarlo, he’s worked with EcoBrooklyn. Then we have some hands on activities which will have us making “Seed Bombs”; think grenades made of dirt and clay embedded with seeds which you can throw in barren green spaces which will then grow into flowers/herbs/vegetables, Guerrilla Garden style! Then I’ll present R.U.S.T ( Radical Urban Sustainability Training) ….followed by a special project we designed that up-cycles used car tires into a portable mobile garden.
So yeah, all fun stuff: below is the program

Hello Everyone!

Please join us at the BUZ this coming Sunday for a full day of Perma Culture Education and Hands On Activities.

For those who missed the March Kickoff, we will start with the second screening of Garbage Warrior and an introduction to the Global Urban Resiliency movement.

After the screening, there will a series of talks by Local Eco Luminaries who have extensive hands on experience applying Urban Resiliency techniques to demonstrate practical applications and initiate a discussion among attendees. At the end we will addressing any questions people may have about how to get started on the Urban Perma-Culture Path.

I believe this is relevant to every single one of us and now is the time to fully educate each other about these miraculous solutions is at hand.
