Very interesting to find that there was another "first ever Midwest Permaculture Convergence" in Lawrence, KS in the first part of August this year. Seems that we need to talk more.
So--for those of you that didn't make it to Kansas--we'll look forward to you coming to Bloomington.

First time on these boards...
...and yes, the MPC in Lawrence was life changing for me!
Warren Brush is a delightful fellow, teacher, story teller, and human being.
Wish I had known about the 2nd 1st Midwest Permaculture Convergence... I would have come on over...
