"Inhabit" explores the many environmental issues facing us today and examines solutions that are being applied using the ecological design process called ‘Permaculture’.
Permaculture is the development of agricultural ecosystems designed to be sustainable and self-sufficient and seeks to shift our agricultural impact from destructive to regenerative.
Focused mostly on the Northeastern and Midwestern regions of the US, "Inhabit" provides an intimate look at permaculture peoples and practices ranging from rural, suburban, and urban landscapes. (93 min.)
An discussion of the film will be facilitated by Maria Janowiak, a forester, writer and science communicator. She earned a BS in Forestry and an MS in forest ecology and management from Michigan Tech.
Janowiak works for the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science and US Forest Service in Houghton. She is also a board member and volunteer for the Keweenaw Land Trust and a trainee in the Master Gardener program run by Michigan State University Extension. She has several projects underway that blend forestry, gardening, landscaping, and wildcrafting.
The showing of "Inhabit" is Cosponsored by Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative, Michigan Tech Great Lakes Research Center, Keweenaw Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, and Keweenaw Land Trust.
