"To prepare for the future, we can love the present"
Larry Santoyo
The future is abundant, asserts permaculture designer Larry Santoyo.

His vision of living in the present suggests an antidote to fear about uncertain times and the future. Humans can rediscover that they are a part of the ecosystem, and apply permaculture design principles to the many problems we face. Larry teaches sustainable permaculture design as a discovery of the world around us.

Santoyo credits his early training as a police officer for giving him some of his most profound human insights. Trained to respond to stressful situations with calm, clear thinking, and keen observation skills while staying centered in the present, he was able to help those in distress while keeping them and himself out danger.

In our eco-anxiety ridden times many are also in distress with stressors that threaten to endanger and paralyze us. But Santoyo suggests that we needn't let these fears shape us, but instead by choosing what we love about the present, and developing useful skills to benefit ourselves and others, we have a solid foundation upon which to build the future.

Larry Santoyo is the Director of EarthFlow Design Works (http://www.earthflow.com), a community planning and design firm that integrates economic development strategies with ecological systems management. Born in East LA, Santoyo has been teaching Permaculture since the1980's both nationally and internationally, most recently returning to Los Angeles, teaching Urban Permaculture classes to a large and receptive audience. “Permaculture for Humanity” is his forthcoming book.

The evening talk takes place on Tuesday, December 4 , 7:30 pm - 9:30pm, at the Santa Barbara Downtown Public Library Faulkner Gallery 40 E Anapamu St Santa Barbara. CA 93101 $5 donation , no reservations required. No reservations required. More info: (805)962-2571, email: margie@sbpermaculture.org www.sbpermaculture.org
