This years NW Permaculture Convergence was the best ever!  The highlight was the skillshare section!  Irene Hinkle has presented basket weaving at all three regional skillshares this year.  We had excellent keynote speakers, great breakout sessions, yummy food, music & dancing, and sunny weather in a location surrounded by the Salish Sea!

Next year's NW Permaculture convergence will be in Oregon, most likely in Sept.

And Salish Sea permaculturists are starting to vision hosting an American Continents convergence in a few years! 

November 9-11, 2012 will be the NW Inland Permaculture Conference at Missoula University, Montana!

Hi all! Online registration ends at midnight tonight. If you see this please register while you can. You can of course register in person when you arrive, but any numbers help us with planning meals, etc,  ahead of time.

The permaculture convergence is one of my favorite events held in our bioregion!  Imagine learning from a wide range of farmers, gardeners, permaculture educators & designers, in an outdoor setting, and often sharing wisdom & story around the campfire and meal time!

Kids & family are welcomed and integrated.  Together we gather and co-create this annual event, this year in a park outside of Port Townsend.

Consider being a volunteer next year, and saving on the registration fee.

Camping for the weekend is only $15.!
