“Why to be Unlawnful” Webinar – Thursday, July 21, 2022 at 7pm (Eastern time)
Lawns are a historical footprint of colonization that continue to reinforce settler colonial ideas of what home/land should look like and what/who should belong. Lawns limit the social and ecological benefits that land can offer us and that we can offer the land. Our imaginations and concepts of beauty have been distorted in order to control land and people. This participatory webinar focused on why to uncolonize and rewild lawns. Hear thoughts around the ecological, spiritual and social impact of lawns as well as reflections, discussions, and more about why to be unlawnful.

PAN’s Virtual Engagement Series 2021-2022
Our theme for the coming year is Uprooting and Unearthing.
Permaculture’s history can be described as Indigenous land management that was repackaged. While much of this knowledge and these skills have disappeared in some communities for about two generations, they are now crucial to helping address climate change and to restoring our humanity. Regardless of what we call this collection of knowledge, as we continue to commit atrocities to the planet — which in turn hurts us — this work becomes critical to our collective survival.
The theme of Uprooting and Unearthing includes: decolonization and equity; the role of spirituality and Indigenous traditions in permaculture; the inner processes of learning, reflection, and discovery; and taking responsibility through action. As we begin to uproot the systems of thought and practice that run counter to Earth care, people care, and fair share, we remember that growing food, building soil, protecting water, regenerating healthy ecosystems, and fostering community is sacred work.
