The 2nd Annual Florida Permaculture Convergence is an event to connect permaculture designers, teachers, organizers and enthusiasts throughout the Florida bioregions. We welcome individuals and families committed to making a resilient Florida!
This year the event will be held on May 2-4,2014 at the h.e.a.r.t. Institute in Lake Wales, FL. During the event we plan to integrate our communities by starting slow and small, learning from each other while building our networks, working together to solve problems and creating closed loop systems. This will not be an introduction to permaculture; however, it will be a space to create lasting relationships that are focused on caring for the earth, caring for people and sharing the abundance.
There will be activities for all ages, a plant swap to spread biodiversity, hands on workshops to share skills, camping to create strong connections and most importantly a space for people to share about the projects they are working on with discussions on how we can begin to move forward as a whole. Come join us!
The intention of the Florida Permaculture Convergence is to create a space for Permaculturists throughout the region to gather, collaborate, discuss, teach, learn, and celebrate each other’s efforts. We aim to facilitate an enduring synergy that unifies our communities towards a more diverse and resilient future.
The goal of the Florida Permaculture Convergence is to encourage beneficial relationships in our bioregions and to leave an increasingly positive impact on the land for future generations using permaculture principles and design strategies.
This years team of organizers and volunteers include Sheryl Dutton, Tia Silvasy, Judith Gulko, Wendi Bellows, Loretta Buckner, Alain Ramos, Koreen Brennan, Paul Saucier, Eric Stewart and Josh Jamison.
