Looking for more ways to make a positive impact on the environment during your day-to-day life? This week, Santa Barbarans interested in learning how to live well by using fewer resources (up to 80 percent less!) will discover exactly how to do so during Santa Barbara’s Deep Green Future, an S.B. Permaculture Society-sponsored lecture and talk by Art Ludwig, a world-renowned ecological integrated systems designer. Ludwig, who has both globally applicable and area-specific knowledge of our surrounding environment as the owner of an eco-friendly home design company here in S.B., will discuss ways people can integrate resource reduction into their lifestyles, homes, infrastructure, and more. It happens on Monday, August 3, at 7 p.m. at the S.B. Public Library (40 E. Anapamu St.). $10. Call 962-2571.
