We are just starting to formulate exactly what kind of event but most likely it will be something simple like a farm tour, meal and social with advanced water and nutrient harvesting explanations and maybe some guild planting hands on or some such thing.
Stay tuned for more on this as things develop! NorthWest Permaculture Convergance

Here is what we are offering as a addition to the SkillShare Faire and NWPC convergence
Announcing an opportunity not to be missed at Inspiration Farm
In conjunction with the Whatcom Sill Share Faire and the NorthWest Permaculture Convergence, Inspiration Farm would like to announce a two day bonus event. Plan to stay a little longer and take it all in!
Monday August 25th
Treat yourself to an extended Inspiration Farm tour tailored to Permaculture veterans and newcomers alike. Witness the advanced earthworks that allow nutrient and water to be passively harvested supporting the whole farm. Walk amongst the food forest and experience the secessional evolution.
Check out the animal rotational systems in place and see the progress that working animals within the landscape can achieve.
Share in the evening pot luck, social event. Bring a dish, your instruments, and Tel-A-Vision around the fire.
All day is available for a suggested $10 donation (no one will be excluded for lack of funds)
Camping is available for those wanting to attend Tuesdays workshops.
