Oliver Kellhammer is a Canadian bio-artist, activist, writer and one of
Canada’s longest-term permaculture teachers. His botanical interventions
and public art projects demonstrate nature’s surprising ability to recover
from human-inflicted damage. Kellhammer will discuss strategies for
remediation (phyto, myco etc.), and the prospects for deep-time climate
change resilience. Oliver is a captivating and inspiring speaker like none
In exploring nature’s innate capacity for earth repair, Oliver poses the
question, ‘What Can I Not Do? His wide ranging talk will draw on many of
his ‘botanical interventions’ into urban space including his recent work
leading biodiversity tours of brownfield habitats in Troy, NY, visits to
abandoned airports in Berlin, and a floating module project on the
Willamette River that will investigate future ecological scenario in
response to climate change and industrial contamination
Oliver Kellhammer is an immensely inspiring permaculturalist and a
marvelously entertaining presenter. Be inspired and think about
permaculture in a ways that you have not considered before!
This event will be held at one of Portland’s most developed urban permaculture demonstration sites – the Planet Repair Institute, birth place of the City Repair Project. Come early to check it out!
