'Food For Thought' film series screens 'Inhabit'

Submitted by Heather Woods

Join the Urban Food Systems Program at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 11, for "Inhabit: A Permaculture Perspective." The screening is part of the "Food For Thought" film series hosted at K-State Olathe, 22201 W. Innovation Drive Olathe, Kansas 66061.

"Inhabit" is a feature-length documentary introducing permaculture: a design method that offers an ecological lens for solving issues related to agriculture, economics, governance, and on. The film presents a vast array of projects, concepts, and people, and it translates the diversity of permaculture into something that can be understood by an equally diverse audience. For those familiar, it will be a call to action and a glimpse into what's possible — what kind of projects and solutions are already underway. For those unfamiliar, it will be an introduction to a new way of being and a new way of relating to the Earth. For everyone, it will be a reminder that humans are capable of being planetary healing forces.

Panelists are Jeremy Cowan, K-State assistant professor in the horticulture and natural resources department;  Steve Mann with Prairie Ecosystems Management; and Amanda Lindahl with Giving Grove Graduate of Urban Food Systems Program.

The film will start promptly at 6:10 p.m. with a panel discussion immediately following the film. All donations will go toward the graduate students of the Master of Science in horticulture with a specialization in urban food systems including programming, tours, community workshops and more.

Thank you to Balls Food Stores for supporting this event.
