Film Screening: The Global Gardener

"The Global Gardener" is an enviromental documentary by Bill Mollison screened on Wednesday June 8, 2011 at the Nahdet El Mahrousa office at 18 Mahmoud Bassiouny St. Downtown Cairo at 7:00 PM.

Bill Mollison is from Australia, and the founder of permaculture with David Holmgren.
Permaculture involves designing and maintaining agriculturally productive ecosystems in rural and urban landscapes, which have the diversity, stability, and the strength of natural eco-systems.

In 4 half-hour segments, Bill travels the globe viewing permaculture application in the tropics, arid deserts, cool temperate climates, and cities.

Two of these programs will be screened, followed by a short discussion of relevant applications in Egypt.

Facilitators: Dominique de Bruin (permaculture designer and trainer) and Moustafa Hussein (Green Arm member)
