Some of LA’s leading urban ecology experts and an internationally recognized permaculturist will descend on the area for the Urban Ecology Extravaganza happening March 3.
Altadena’s Institute of Urban Ecology, a “center for learning focused on living ecological solutions for the urban environment,” will host day events that include talks on how to raise chickens in a backyard without a coop or run, permaculture in an urban setting and gardening that works with nature’s systems.
Incidentally, permaculture focuses on sustainability in a variety of ways.
In the evening, noted permaculturalist Paul Wheaton will speak at Pasadena’s Armory Center for the Arts (145 N. Raymond Avenue) about irrigation-free gardening.
The event lasts from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Local store and eatery Oh Happy Days Natural Foods and Café will provide lunch.
The Institute of Urban Ecology is located in Lower Zorthian Ranch at 3990 N. Fair Oaks Avenue, Altadena
