2020 is a year for Cultivating Community! Through online presentations we will have presenters, artists and musicians talking permaculture!
The NW Permaculture Convergence is definitely happening, though virtually this year. https://www.northwestpermaculture.org/ T
With the muc anticipated theme form last year on Cultivating Community, we want to hear from the voices who have not been heard and create courageous safe spaces to share our hearts even if it hurts. It is time now.
2020 is clearly a year for People-Care and Fair-Share! We are planning on panel discussions on racial identity with safe-courageous spaces for healing (caucus style). We see small workshops being hosted across the region, with a digital home-base to keep us all connected. We will follow our traditional schedule of Thursday night to Sunday night, live-streaming opening and closing circles, keynotes and all workshops. A digital format anchored with real small gatherings across the land allows us to be super inclusive, flexible on our pricing and share the value of permaculture teaching for maximum impact.
Visit www.northwestpermaculture.org to submit your info to be a presenter, musician or artist considered for an offering at the first ever online Northwest Permaculture Convergence. We look forward to hearing from you! Thanks!
Different for this year: there will be more scholarships and a low ticket price. Our children’s program is “at your own pace” with a digital color book you can print out, linked to videos of a short lesson plan and fun projects connected to each design principle. We will be donating 1/2 of all proceeds to social and environmental justice groups in alignment with permaculture ethos of earth-care, fair-share and people-care, do you have an organization we should support?
Please let us know! And get involved!
UPDATE: This last weekend the NW Permaculture Convergence was such a good experience for all who attended. There were benefits to having it online. We even managed to sing and dance together!
We recorded everything! And it will all be available to attendees - as soon as we can get it all uploaded. Tickets are still available for a little while if you want the recordings. And all the downloads.
If you want a certain presentation or moment on the Schedule, let us know. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or subscribe to the email list at www.northwestpermaculture.org
Hope to see you at one of our online meetups soon... or even a work party or farm tour.
