Join Beck Mordini and Jenny Pell for a lively conversation about facing our pretty scary future with integrity, hope, plenty of know-how, and a great sense of humor.  We'll dive into climate reality, appropriate technologies, skill-building, local food, and neighborhood solutions that will inspire you to jump into your own community-based projects with both feet.  The dearth of leadership on the coming climate crises is insane, so what do we do, and what are you bringing to the table?  There's plenty of good news and lots of do, and who knows, maybe the suburbs will save the world.  

Jenny Pell is a career permaculture designer and consultant based on Maui whose extensive international portfolio spans everything from neighborhood foodscaping to large-scale climate resilient agroforestry. She was the lead designer for Seattle's first food forest, a successful and much-loved multi-stakeholder project. But teaching is her passion - growing food from seed to plate, watershed restoration, planting living banks of valuable genetics, buffering against the extremes of climate instability, and empowering people to learn important skills that will carry us through the coming challenges. And of course having good fun all the while, 'cause who wants to come to the party if you can't dance! Her website is https://permaculturenow.org.
