I just dropped the price of
the permaculture playing cards
for a wee bit.

 

 

uses include:
- infecting brains with permaculture
- convincing folks that you are not crazy
- gift giving obligations
- stocking stuffer
- gambling distraction
- an hour or two of reading
- find the needle
- find the 26 hidden names

Hi everyone - so I'm new to posting on the forums, (or any forum), although I've perused them a good deal.  I'd like to let everyone know that the INPC (held in Tum Tum WA for the last three years) will be in Hot Springs this year on Labor Day weekend.  We're starting serious planning now, and I'd love to be in touch with Paul about any advice he may have to offer, and to connect with folks who may want to help. I doubt we can afford Paul's speaking fees, but we'd love to network with him, and see about joining permie forces for a great weekend.  Looks like a PDC will be happening at wheaton labs this summer, too.  We'd love to help spread the word! Early registration is open now on the INPG website. Thanks! Tawnya (currently heading up the coordinating group...)

Welcome to the forums, Tawnya! Great first post!

More details about the INPC convergence would be good to add in here, such as the website or where to register, dates, times, prices, speakers, etc. - and even pictures, if that's not too much to learn as a new user!

I added this thread to the cascadia, rockies, and conference/convergences forums to get it more notice.  Paul loves to do media exchanges (see this post for a bit of an explanation) at the very least; and he might be persuaded to speak - I'll let him know!

Paul, that was Jeremy Cowan, with WSU. I was hoping you and I could speak if you have a moment, to see if you would like any kind of involvement with the convergence.  The dates for INPC 2017 are Friday, Sept 1 thru Sunday Sept 3.  The times are still being solidified.  Early registration for the three days is currently set at $100 per person, which will include meals and workshops, but not lodging (although some arrangements will be made for free lodging).  Some work trade will be available. http://inlandnorthwestpermaculture.com is the website where folks can register, and will be able to find details as they emerge. We are having a conference call this Tuesday at 7pm and a meeting in Hot Springs on Friday March 31 from 1-3.  I encourage anyone who is interested in helping pull this event together to consider attending one or both of these.  I can be reached at (406) 471-0022 with any specific questions, or if Paul would like to chat about the event. 

Thanks, Jocelyn, for your post!  This seems like a great way to help spread the word as details come available.
