The Northeast Permaculture Convergence has deep roots in our region as a place where permaculture practitioners (and our friends from Transition groups, herbalists, primitive skills/earth awareness circles, food systems advocates, and other affinity groups) come together to build capacity, gain new skills, celebrate, and knit together our amazing regional permaculture network further.

The last convergence was held in 2014 in Unity, Maine and the PAN board is thinking the time is RIPE to plan for a 2020 event. This event takes a community to prepare for it, requiring many hands and hearts coming together in cooperation. Whether your passion is around organizing and planning for local, organically grown meals, live music, vendors, speakers, infrastructure, art, kids activities, marketing, etc. we need it all!

JOIN US for our first planning weekend in New Hampshire that will lay the groundwork for the following year in anticipation of a summery 2020 convergence! If you’re enthusiastic, hard working, reliable, and committed to making this an amazing event, we encourage you to fill out an application form!

Hi Stephanie....first off, welcome to Permies!

I can't believe it's been almost 5 years now since the last event.  I gave a talk about biochar in Unity.  It was a great event and I can't wait for the next one.  I assume you've already been in contact with all the local permaculture meetup groups in the northeast.  I'm assuming their leadership groups will be excited to help out.  If you guys want another talk on biochar I'm very happy to do this again!

Cheers, Greg

Hi Greg! And, thank you - I was registered on Permies what seems like a decade ago, but I couldn't remember my login. . .

I attended the convergence three years in a row, then I moved the southwest, then the northeast, and NOLA before coming home. Got back in December. Been digging a lot of holes these last few days. . .

Anyway, when I joined the PAN board and learned that the convergence hadn't been happening, I was super bummed! So glad to be a part of the spark to reignite(fitting pun for you).

We JUST finalized details, so I'm grateful you mentioned meetup groups. Haven't gotten there yet, great idea!

I love the idea of a biochar because, well, I love biochar. Email your info to plantresilience@gmail.com?

Thanks for the warm welcome, it's great to be back!

Sunny Regards,
Steph

I live 5 miles from MOFGA, and in fact used to farm that farm before they bought it off my Great Uncle.

I know this is different, but this year at my farm I am having Tim and Deanna Treadway come to Rock the Flock to discuss what it was like to farm for a whole year as 1875 settlers for the show Pioneer Quest. I really wanted to give something for Permiculurists and Organic Farmers in this area to come to. Everything is free; from the (6) bands playing, to the bounce houses for the kids, and even the food. It should be a great time, and give people something to do around here without breaking the budget.


You can watch the show for free if you have Amazon Prime. It has a 94% approval rating!
