The Northwest Permaculture Convergence is a conference. There are presentations, plenary sessions, unlimited networking, a Marketplace, and lots of fun. It is a unique gathering where individuals and organizations can show and tell what they are doing to help create a more peaceful, green and resilient culture and economy.
The Convergence is a unique place for diverse groups and people to come together to mix, mingle, network, and cross pollinate. We are all on the same team! And we need to focus on practical actions in the real world. Who will be interested? Students, urban gardeners, city planners, eco-village enthusiasts, neighborhood leaders, preparedness people, business persons, faith communities, seniors and young people, home school families and educators of all types.
The Details: Unlike previous years, this year we will be hosting an online Convergence, using tools like Zoom, Facebook and Youtube to connect our community. We haven't been known for our tech savyness in the past, so if you have any expertise or abilities to help organize then please let us know!
The Convergence will begin Thursday evening at 5pm, continue all day Friday and Saturday, and into Sunday until about 5pm.
In the past we have had multiple workshops happening simultaneously, but this year we will be doing one at a time so that we can support everyone participating. We are looking forward to talking about all the different permaculture design principles, and seeing what everyone has to offer through knowledge, artistry, and music. If you have an entertainment specialty, offer it!
