Those who have seen the movie 'The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil' will be familiar with Cuban Permaculturist Roberto Perez. . The Blue Mountains Permaculture Network will be presenting Roberto at the Carrington Hotel Ballroom on Thursday 27th March, 2008, between 7-9pm. For anyone not able to get to the Australian Permaculture Conference 9 in Sydney this may be a chance to hear about his experience using permaculture principles to transform Havana into a sustainable city. Cuba is the only country with a high life expectancy, free health, free education able to maintain itself sustainably in the world according to the World Wildlife Fund's Living Planet Report 2007. Entrance price $10. I'm looking forward to it!
