Join us for 4 days full of information, inspiration, action and traction towards re-defining our material, economic and social needs and how we take care of them.
This year’s Convergence theme is “Finding Common Cause”. The necessity is to not only go deeper with this work, but to also broaden both our thinking and our networks to include a wider range of allies and par...tners to work with for making those deep changes.
Permaculture and Finding Common Cause – this year’s event is designed to engage all ages, all senses and a diversity of interests from small-scale gardening in urban settings to broader agricultural, educational, social and bio-regional projects, efforts and movements. Participants will also enjoy the addition of a musical line-up as well as a skill-share component anchored by some of our area's leading earth skills practitioners.
Our driving force in organizing this event is the recognition that our coming together is more timely than ever. Trends in economics, resources, environment, global relations, culture all combine for a compelling message – there is urgent reason to re-define our material, economic and social needs and how we take care of them, as well as ow we take care of ourselves.
Work-trade options are available. This is one event that you can't afford to miss!
Some of our presenters will include:
*Transition Towns PDX
*Cascadia Center for Social Ecology
and many more to come!
Sacred Circle Dance has been confirmed for late evening entertainment. We're also actively pursuing a Contra Dance caller and live music offerings.
