The NW Permaculture Convergence is definitely happening in Seattle on Spt 17 - 19
. Paul will be presenting. From a recent e-mail I sent out:
Save the date for the 2010 Northwest Permaculture Convergence, Spt 17-19! This year we are forging an exciting new pathway in an urban setting by converging at South Seattle Community College. Camping and home stays will be available. With an 87 acre campus and cabins at nearby Camp Long, this will be an experience of an oasis in the city. Not only are the SSCC gardens and meadows waiting for us, you will find warm and fuzzy interior spaces as well.
Mark Lakeman, activist architect and urban placemaking guru, will be our keynote speaker this year! Many of you already know that Mark has been an ongoing and early instigator of Portland's City Repair and the annual Village Building Convergence there. Of course we will host a wide array of fabulous regional presenters, and opportunities to present your own work. In addition, look for collaboration with the Cascadia region's Transition Towns initiatives. They will be integrating their own summit into the Convergence. Also look for Seattle's own SCALLOPS (Sustainable Communities ALL Over Puget Sound) to be a presence as well. We are very pleased to be making this year's NW Convergence a truly regional event!
We welcome with open arms all those interested in permaculture, as well as those working in permaculture. Tickets for the 2010 Convergence are $65 through August 1, $85 August 2 through Sept 15, and $100 at the door. Please keep checking back to the nwpermaculture.org website for registration and other details. More will be posted shortly.
