The organizing team has found a great venue in Orange County that is very similar to the one that we used in Malibu for this year, where the venue offers an already in place full infrastructure to support overnight accommodations (camping and bunk rooms), large auditorium group presentations, and a large kitchen food service infrastructure. There are 2 somewhat major differences. One being that we would have to change the time of year from the last weekend of April to the middle of August. And on the major plus side would be that they are super excited about the possibilities of having Permaculture design implemented into their facility. Which would allow us to have many possibilities for hands on workshops during the event and to do things on the land that would remain there as part of the venue.
How does everyone feel about converging on August 17-19 ??
If you know of any date conflicts with any other large permaculture happenings or other related events in SoCal, please let us know as we are about to lock in this date and move forward.
