The Convergence is a conference with presentations, plenary sessions, key note addresses, educational displays, and lots of networking. This is the most expansive permaculture event of the year in the Pacific Northwest. It's all about living a greener, more resilient and purposeful lifestyle. Typically, 300-600 people attend.
The Convergence costs very little to attend - it is mostly a volunteer labor of love. Limited scholarships are available, as is trading work for discounted cost of admission.
To help ensure the viability of this and future Convergences, we invite your financial or in-kind support and participation. You can simply make a donation to the 501(c)3 non-profit Northwest Permaculture Convergence (tax ID# 61-1802782) using our Donation box on the Home page. You can also participate as a Sponsor or Vendor by purchasing display space to promote your products and services. All choices help support the Convergence and will boost your visibility as well.
