OAA AGM (Brief) & Film Screening - Anima Mundi

11am SATURDAY 21ST APRIL 2018

Organic Information and Resource Centre, 14 McKean St, Bairnsdale.


Bring your lunch and take the opportunity to share ideas and stories with other members. Contributions of cake or fruit to share with tea or coffee gratefully received.


After lunch we will be screening a documentary about peak oil and climate change.

“Anima Mundi” highlights permaculture as a practical solution and the Gaia theory as a philosophical evolution deepening our connection with earth.

Many people do not realize that permaculture is much more than about growing fruit and vegetables, it is a whole view incorporating the environment, energy, resources, housing, technology, education, healthcare, the arts, spirituality, psychology, philosophy and agriculture. It provides a realistic alternative for our future sustainability, a gentler way that treads lightly on our Mother Earth. Anima Mundi is not a “How To” video, it is a “Where To” documentary showcasing alternatives like Earthships, Permaculture, Permablitz, retrofitting the suburbs, lifeboats, localised food production and currencies, planned energy descent and Gaian philosophy.
