Here is the recording of Paul's presentation from the Permaculture Voices webinar from August 10th - Building a Better World One Permaculture Brick at a Time.

It is slides overlaid with voice. Enjoy!

We just added a 4 hour SPIN farming intensive workshop to the lineup. So anyone that attends the conference will be able to attend the workshop. No separate registration required, this is part of the conference ticket. I think that this adds a lot of value and gives people some help to potentially kick start a permie business.

Workshop Details HERE

A comprehensive list of what you get at Permaculture Voices is here, The Permaculture Voices Experience. As it stands right now each individual could potentially see over 34 hours of content.

A pretty accurate schedule for the four days is viewable HERE - Schedule

Some minor time shifting may occur, but this is how it will more or less shape up.

A lot of the talk topics are listed, but we are still nailing down more of the talk topics, so watch for those in the near future.

Also, still a few more speakers in the works.

That looks awesome.

Not sure if you noticed, but the schedule does not display properly in Chrome and that makes Paul talk at 6 am

Permaculture for Humanity: Beyond Buildings and Food. A very different presentation, yet much needed, than the typical permaculture presentation.

Diego your conference looks awesome. I won't be able to attend unfortunately. We are expecting the birth of my 2nd son a few weeks prior. Jack is right, whether it's permaculture or another type of business, people are in business to make money. Both Paul and Jack say it all the time in their respective podcasts. They do what they do because they love it but they can do it because they are great thinkers/business men and are profitable in their endeavors. Why not do something you are passionate about and made a living at the same time? If they didn't you would never have heard of either one of them. Permaculture doesn't have to equal poverty. And if you don't have the money to go to this event and it's important to you save up the money for a similar event next year. Life isn't free, profit isn't a 4 letter word and things you deem worthwhile are often worth working hard to obtain.

Gentlemen (ladies),
Interested in splitting a hotel room with me?
Just an FYI, I'm happy husband 35 something with 3 kids.

I'm okay rooming with guys or gals, but prefer those that will be so exhausted from all the great learning and interacting that there won't be any energy for late night tv, poker games or parties. 12AM and I'm asleep.

Hi Diego,

Any updates on this?

You posted this back in September and I'm very curious if there is a place where people can coordinate with others about places to stay during the conference.

I'll be posting in the few forums I know about to see who may be interested.
Here - Permies.com Forum
The Survival Podcast Forum
Permaculture Research Institute Forum

Suggestions welcome =)

Also, Diego. Thank you for all that you've done putting this together, I can't wait!

Thanks. A camping option, but nothing on a local house from. We looked into getting a big house and renting out rooms, but that fell through.

There is a discussion about sharing housing for the Permaculture Voices conference here:

http://www.permies.com/t/30282/southwest-usa/Permaculture-Voices-Housing

Briefly, I've found a large house with a variety of living spaces. Less expensive housing will be an option, although nobody will get away paying less than $150 for the week (and yes, I know you're not staying for a week, but it's a weekly rental and you can't find a sublettor and neither can I ) although if we fill up the bigger private rooms than may include food.

What I'm really looking for is small groups of 2-4 who are willing to share a bedroom with one queen bed in it. Be that a couple, or friends with camping mattresses, this way the people are distributed around the bathrooms. (3 people in a room at $150 each makes $450 for a room, and that sort of thing could work--I'm still working on the math.) See the thread for more details. . .

TICKETS FOR SALE?

Paul posted a link to this page in his daily email, about some tix for sale... but I'm not seeing it.

I planned my goat kiddings (births) around going to this, but then wasn't sure I was going to be able to when hubby lost his job before the early discount deadline. If I watch my pennies, I can swing it now, so if there's any tix available out there at the early price, I'd even pay you a bit more of a bonus!

Thanks so much in advance!

All the best,
Lacia Lynne

Wow, that is a great opportunity. Having been a new farmer myself once upon a time, everyone new to the game really should get to the conference. Learning directly from the pros is priceless. I hope to see lots of fresh faces at the conference!

Great work making this opportunity available Diego!

As a "barely scraping by" student, it wasn't a piece of cake coming up with the money for the ticket. On the other hand it was far from impossible. With an empty mason jar and burning desire to attend, i started putting away any money I could. Sometimes 20 bucks if a paycheck was big enough, sometimes only the change left in my pocket at the end of the day. With a few minor sacrifices and quite a bit less name brand lattes i was able to save enough for a ticket at the student rate after just a month. My point is, if this is as crucial to your personal future and career as it is to mine, you will find a way. I cant wait to attend, and I can't thank Diego enough for putting all this together.

Welcome to permies.com, Tim.

You said a mouthful there "...you'll find a way."
We all find excuses for the things we don't really want or need...
...but the bottom line is: if you really want/need it, there is a way.

You will 'leap-frog' well beyond those that would like to be there.

T-12 days until the conference, and my wife and I are excited as hell.
Does anyone know anything about the dinner on Saturday?

I talked to one friend who is going and she thought is was a dinner at a farmstead somewhere near the casino? Then back to the Casino for the Spin Farming Workshop?

What about meals for the conference in general- is it suggested to just bring sack lunches?

Thanks all.

There was originally going to be a farm dinner on Thursday night but it fell through in the later stages of planning on the farm end. They ran into some issues that were beyond their control. So we added a talk during that time instead.

For meals there are restaurants on site or bring your own.
