PERMACULTURE VOICES 2016!



This year the Permaculture Voices conference is geared heavily towards the entrepreneur, and the prospective entrepreneur.

Many people are attracted to the values of permaculture, but they struggle with how to use the tools and tactics of permaculture in their daily life leaving themselves thinking… How do I make a living doing this?


All of the speakers this year will be addressing this exact problem.

Learn how you can support your family and pay your bills doing work that you enjoy … from farmers and entrepreneurs doing just that running successful and growing businesses.

Whether you are a business owner who is looking to grow your business, or a new entrepreneur looking to find the right business to start, you will benefit by connecting with successful entrepreneurs and learning about their proven business models and techniques.

Learn how to live the life that you dream of from others out there doing it.


Specifically:

PV3 was designed for people who are…

Stuck at a dead end job and are looking to make a career change to a field that aligns with their values.
People just starting out their entrepreneurial journey and want to start a permaculture or agriculture based business and are looking for models that actually work in the real world.
People looking to start a career that excites them, but they just aren’t sure what that looks like yet.
People who currently run a permaculture or agriculture based business, and want to try to grow their business either organically or by adding on complementary businesses.
People who are looking to connect with other business owners to build valuable relationships that could lead to partnerships, jobs, or mentorships.
People who are looking to increase their business knowledge. They might have a lot of practical skills, but they lack the models and knowledge to take those skills and shape them into a business.



Excited yet?!

I will happily respond first-

I'm going, it'll be my first conference with Permaculture Voices.

I'm pretty stoked, though just like anything, I'm anxious about making the most of it. I don't love the PV website for the fact that it's just too "sale-ey" for me( I have an adulthood of sales experience, which probably just means I scroll down through almost everything I read). I was sold as soon as I could save enough money because of the podcasts from Diego( https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/permaculture-voices-profitable/id676930917?mt=2 ) and jack spirko ( http://www.thesurvivalpodcast.com/ )

I'm learning and I think this will be a good thing, I've been farming with a friend(and family land), selling at markets, and running my own farmers market for two years. We've been using "common sense" principles everywhere we grow, including an additional, large commercial property and a couple urban gardens/farms.

Blah blah- Just excited about learning something new with my $600+time+hotel.

Thanks for responding Josh. I think a lot of people are in the same boat as you. Frankly, I am quite surprised that no one else has responded. I kinda thought a lot of people from these forums would be going.

I, too, have limited resources. Social Security only goes so far. There are a couple other reasons, but mostly financial.

I'm going, "good lord's willing and the creek don't rise"

I'm speaking in the short form talks,

"the naked truth behind 'permaculture chickens' - how permaculture business rescued me from poverty and IS changing the world"

I would love to go, but the only month of any given year that I can even THINK about leaving the farm is January. And this year we have several large projects going in, so my full attention will be mandatory from last tuesday till November. **sad face** On the bright side, 500+ more people will get fed this year thanks to these projects. **happy face**

I will be there! Plan on responding more when I'm in front of my computer. Just wanted to reply quickly while checking email on my phone. Look forward to meeting more people and developing further relationships with fellow permies in just a few weeks!

For those of us who did not go to PV3- The lectures are available for purchase online. I found the broadacre videos to be an amazing deal at $99 - I was so happy with them that At my blog I compared the PV3 videos favorably to some amazing courses I've attended in person. Respectfully nothing compares to live training, but from a value perspective the PV3 videos kick ass.

If you want to bypass my opinions in my blog you can go straight to the tap: Permaculture Voices Shop scroll down and you will find the PV3 media as well as other great content.
 
Are you okay? You look a little big. Maybe this tiny ad will help:
Video of all the permaculture design course and appropriate technology course (about 177 hours)
