South Melbourne Commons Film Night: The Man Who Stopped The Desert

A group of Permablitz designers got together to design the food gardens for South Melbourne Commons in 2011. Unfortunately the lease for the commons is not being renewed and will be closing the doors end of August. Please say farewell by going to the fund raiser film night this Thursday night!

Film Night: The Man Who Stopped The Desert

Time ticks away as we approach the end of the Commons as we know it, but that doesn't stop great things from happening! We've partnered with Transition Port Phillip for this film event. We can't wait to see it and share with you all! The Man Who Stopped The Desert tells the remarkable story of Yacouba Sawadogo, an illiterate peasant farmer, who transformed the desert and the lives of thousands across west Africa. This film screening is followed by a short talk with Mariam Issa, social entrepreneur and author of A Resilient Life.
