Registration is now officially open for the Florida Permaculture Convergence!
Since 2013, Florida permie community has hosted annual statewide gatherings for people to network and deepen their knowledge of permaculture.
This year the event will be held for the third time at Kashi Ashram, in Sebastian Florida. The dates are Friday November 30 through Sunday December 2, 2018.
This year's theme is "Closing the Loop".
Many of us – especially those interested in permaculture & sustainability – believe that we’re all connected… that everything is interconnected.
And yet our modern way of life seems to disconnect us from nature and from each other.
So… we try to increase our positive impact on other beings and reduce our negative effects…even with unintended consequences.
How do we reverberate with the universe?
How do we close the loop with our actions & relationships?
Whence does our food come & where does our garbage go?
From where does soil fertility come? How do we fit in the nutrient cycle?
Does flushing a toilet close the loop?
Where are we in the hydrologic cycle?
Where do we get our daily electricity and gasoline and what are their effects?
Nature shows us there is no waste. At FPC 2018 we want to learn about our role in ecology and closing the loop of materials & energy in our daily lives.
HOW do we connect with nature?
Join us for the Sixth Annual Florida Permaculture Convergence ... Where we will journey to the center of permaculture!
This is a family-friendly event with a program of activities for young people.
Other goodies include free vending for registrants - come hawk your handcrafted or homegrown permie wares! Also check out our permaculture project grant contest - there is still time to apply.
