Carpool to the 8th Annual Northeastern Permaculture Convergence!

YOUR RSVP HERE DOES NOT ACTUALLY SIGN YOU UP FOR THE EVENT... To buy tickets for the Convergence you need to go to http://2012neconvergence.eventbrite.com/. However, for carpooling from the Greater NH Seacoast area, this is the place!: RSVP YES AND TELL US WHEN YOU WANT TO BE THERE! Hopefully, connections ca n be made this way.

Here's more info on the Convergence itself:

This year’s convergence will follow in the tradition of past convergences: open to everyone, with programming throughout and a chance to meet other permaculture designers and activists and folks new to permaculture. The entire event will be very kid and family friendly.


Presentations and workshops from Skotty Kellogg of the Radix Center, Lisa DePiano of Mobile Design Lab, Dave Jacke and Eric Toensmeier of Edible Forest Gardens, and Ryan Harb of UMass Permaculture with topics ranging from polyculture design to hugelkultur to food systems planning, and much much more.


  • Interact with each other and observe each others’ strategies and successes;
  • Catch and store the excitement and energy that comes with collaboration and sharing with the community;
  • Walk away with a yield (new ideas, strengthened relationships, & next steps);
  • Share your own strategies and receive feedback on how to improve their efficiency;
  • Learn about renewable resources in your bio-region;
  • Collaborate and imagine with others how to produce as little waste as possible in your own homestead;
  • Take a weekend to step back and think about the design of your own life;
  • Integrate with others in your bio-region;
  • Develop new slow and small solutions, learn about local resources and produce more sustainable outcomes;
  • Use and value the diversity of the Northeast’s resources and people;
  • Learn about the differences among bio-regions across the Northeast and use these edges and margins to your advantage;
  • Meet new people, learn about how they work, and create new ideas from theirs.

    Hi all,
    I've had something come up and can't make it... but I hope some of you do head down for it - there are some great speakers and workshops going on and I am sure everyone will learn a lot and be energized by it!
