Two MASSIVE Reasons Why You Should Attend PV2



Gain New Perspectives

What if you could talk to someone who was years ahead of you on the path that you wanted to go down, would you benefit for talking to that person?

At PV2 you will have the opportunity to connect with those types of people.
People that have more experience doing what you want to do.

Many people, including Stefan Sobkowiak featured in the interview below, would do things differently if they started over. They have a lot of trial and error and have arrived at what works. This usually means that if they did things over, they would do things differently, and better.

If you are just starting out, then you can benefit greatly from their knowledge in terms of what they know now and what they would do differently.
You can also gain new perspectives from the people who are doing what you are doing, but just in a different way.

No two pastured poultry operations are run the same way. No form of marketing is universally applicable. See what others (attendees and speakers) are doing and see what could work for you.

Whether you are stuck or just want to explore what is out there, there is a lot of value in collaboration, in seeing new perspectives.


Connect With Others


Have you ever been around 500 people that share similar values to you?

People that generally believe what you believe – that our current paradigm is broken, and we need to change it.

People that are actively participating in being part of the change.

That’s what PV2 is and will be.

500 switched on and engaged individuals that are coming together as one to share ideas and grow, so everyone can go home and live the permaculture life that they dream of.

Taking on these journeys into a new paradigm, career, or business are inevitably hard. It get’s a lot easier when you are doing that journey with others who are on the same path.

Ask any successful person in any field and I guarantee that they will attribute a large part of their success to the positive connections in their lives – mentors, colleagues, friends. Success is built on the back of high quality relationships.

PV2 has created an immersive environment that will allow you share ideas, build friendships, and deeply connect with a supportive community for 5 days and 4 nights. Then you can continue these relationships outside of PV2 to make the journey easier.

Come to PV2 open minded, come in with a plan, and create connections to take what you are doing and your life to the next level.

Get what you can’t get online at PV2.



Scholarships:

As of right now there are still several discounted prices available. BUT these prices will end FEBRUARY 8th at Midnight!
Click here to buy your discounted ticket right now!

Other Stuff:

Cross-Pollination

There will be several "cross-pollination sessions" throughout the conference. These sessions are designed to provide attendees an opportunity to digest the content of the conference, integrate the knowledge into their own lives and work, and make valuable connections that will endure once the conference is over.

Each session is designed and guided by experienced facilitators. Using methodologies such as World Cafe, story sharing and networking activities, participants will interact, share insight, design together for action, reflect on their experiences and meet new people.


Yoga:

To help you relax and refresh they will be offering instructor led yoga sessions each morning.
The sessions will be led by permie and yoga instructor Courtney Sniderman.

The sessions will take place daily each morning from 7-8AM on site at the Sheraton.

Food:

Food will not be provided for this year's conference. Sorry!

How to Get There

I created a ride share thread so people can try to carpool as much as possible!

Cheap Places to Sleep

Here is a place to discuss cheap housing with other permies! A few people have offered up their places and it would be cool to get a big group of permies together in one house!

Socialization

One of the things I am SOOO excited for is the end of the day, night activities. On two nights of the conference there is "party" scheduled from 8pm-end.! I just cannot even imagine what it is going to be like to be surrounded by hundreds of people who have similar values and just be able to chat with everyone and hear their stories. I think it is going to be SO powerful and amazing. Also, on one night the movie Inhabit:A Permaculture Perspective will be premiered and that is super exciting in itself!

I also think it is SO important to think about the big picture here too. This is going to be SO personally beneficial to EVERYONE who attends this conference. It is going to change people's lives. BUT ALSO if there is a conference that has 1,000 people attending, don't you think it is going to give the whole permaculture movement a legitimacy that it never has had before?! That is what it is all about isn't it? Getting permaculture into the brains of every brain possible!

Again- if you want to go to the conference that will change your life, AND support the empire, get tickets here!!



What Past Permaculture Voices Attendees Have Said:

“you did an absolutely fabulous job! I felt a part of one large being! The minds that you brought together were incredibly knowledgeable and inspiring. I really appreciated your having the bookstore there. I hope that you will continue to bring these conferences to the world!” Jo R.

“The conference was amazing — so much learned, even from “osmosis” with many bright and committed people. I know you put a superhuman effort into organizing and the result was outstanding!” Jane H

“AWESOME JOB! That was the best conference I’ve been to.” Chris S

“I’ve probably attended 100 conferences and your design of the workshop schedule was the best one I’ve ever encountered – BRAVO! I’m still tickled pink to have been part of it “ Steph K

“In all sincerity it was the most professionally run and valuable alternative living conference I’ve attended. Your vision and work are commendable to the point of arm breaking (from all that back patting!).” Javan B

“Your work and vision is helping to galvanize and connect this whole movement!” Frank G

“Just want to sing you praises for your great accomplishment of bringing so many (practically all) of the truly greats in our field together and in So Cal. You will forever hold a dear place in my heart and in my prayers for allowing us to participate, thank you!” Miguel U

“Again, thank you SO much for putting such an awesome event together. I have been so pumped since then and out working the property every day since.” Brian G

Excellent! A thread has started for PV2!

My tickets are purchased and I will be looking at housing options soon.

This time around, I will likely stay on-site at the hotel and am "interviewing" people who might be interested in sharing a room at the conference center.

This is going to be another great conference and I look forward to crossing paths with everyone out there!

Yes...there was a where many of us stayed. I suspect there will be another house or something along similar lines.

If you're interested in renting a house, you could certainly spearhead the movement to do so! Now is the time to start planning!

However, to increase the amount of social networking I can engage in, I'm choosing the hotel route instead.

It would be interesting to see the various housing options the permies community can come up with.

This is very exciting! Looking forward to PV2!

I'll be staying at the hotel for the same reason. Looking forward to meeting some folks in person rather than just online.

I have been getting a fair number of people asking me about scholarships to PV2. So we did some planning and we put some in place.

There are 3 levels of scholarship tickets. $249, $499, $749. Info here.

Pick the price level that you can afford.

All of the ticket levels include full admission to PV2 and each ticket includes the PV1 video for free.

This isn't just a cheaper option for someone to save some money if they can afford otherwise. This is our way of trying to help someone out.

Please do not buy this ticket if you can afford the regular admission ticket.

More information available HERE - PV2 SCHOLARSHIPS.

Happy Holidays.

I got my ticket today! Diego, thank you so much for offering the scholarship tickets. After returning from a year of wwoofing, including a stint at Paul's land, I only recently as able to find a job and $250 really was all I could afford. I have been listening to your podcasts and getting so much inspiration out of them. I am at a point in my life where I am figuring out how I will support myself in the coming years, and you have been helping me gain the courage and insight to make that happen through permaculture. I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to the conference, hearing all the speakers, and meeting so many other people who are excited about changing the world as I am.

i talk a LOT about permaculture on my other threads and blog sites. i've been studying biochemistry and nutrition informally since before you were born (77) and at one point had about 10,000 articles and 300+ books on the subjects. There are also farming, political issues, health sites where i deal with GMO church members, etc.

i try to put the word out in a good way. Let's face it, when organic research takes up only $4 out of a thousand $$$ research money - and on an average year they produce 80% as much as "conventional" farming - that is way more than the amount of food wasted every year and could feed the world itself. When you figure out that in wet years & drought years the organic produces MORE than "conventional", well that is pretty cool, right? Right there the GMOs are NOT necessary.

NOW think about all the Permaculture studies being done in Universities and corpse-orations. Hmm. NONE? Look at the production capabilities of permaculture, and man - we can set the world down at the healthiest table, with the least amount of effort for the most, best foods i believe.

When it is applicable - and it is frequently a close tangent to the discussion, or comes up in replies and commentary, i try to wake people up.

I know it is going to be SUPER hard to decide which speakers to choose because there are SO many good ones to choose from. So I am going to post as many videos of speakers that I can find so you all can get an idea of who they all are and what they are all about.



of course there are some speakers who don't have any youtube presence so if there are people I missed, it's either because I haven't got to posting their yet, or they might just not have a video. Feel free to post your favorite videos from any of the speakers as well!


Here is the schedule for PV2. Just click on each indidvidual image to see it at full size, non-blurry.
