A Fermented Thoughts Event: 

In light of the environmental crisis many people are asking: what does it mean to live equitably amongst all people, other species, and future generations? One way people are answering this question is trying to change their own lifestyles to something more sustainable and less wasteful. 

Join Jim Merkel as he explores honouring nature by living within our limits, sharing with us the tools he has found helpful in his journey, and inviting us to find ways that work for us. 

Jim Merkel is an American author, filmmaker, volunteer, and engineer that moved from involvement in the military industry to pioneering in simplicity. His book, Radical Simplicity: Small Footprints on a Finite Earth offers a path to a deeply sustainable way of living respectful of all life. He was Dartmouth College’s first Sustainability Coordinator and consults with campuses and municipalities on sustainability initiatives. 

Fermented Thoughts is the Working Centre’s forum for imaginative thought on social, economic, and ecological issues. Join us for discussion over wine and food. 

For tickets contact us at:  //  519-743-1151 ext 175.

Tickets are $25 for the evening, including food and drink.

This event is part of the Working Centre’s Weaving Ecology series. A year exploring the intricacies of living within our limits.
