    I like my friends in Permaculture! A gorgeous weekend of workshops, lectures, hands-on demos and exploring a beautiful food garden. There were some logistical problems for the campers and with the programs that I think will be worked out next year and seem a result of inexperienced volunteers running everything. Volunteers make everything happen and are the heart of the convergence, and keep the price very accessible. I came away filled with inspiration and new knowledge. Thanks everyone for co-creating such a wonderful event.
