The NW Permaculture Convergence Board is happy to announce a new partnership (umbrellad-er-ship) for the 2014 season.
We encourage all our members to attend the Whatcom Skillshare Faire happening August 23-24 outside of Bellingham. We will have a 'Permaculture' area of the fair and on Sunday morning will hold our annual meeting there.
The Skillshare is a project of Transition Whatcom, and the worldwide Transition movement began with a Permaculture course! (toot toot)
Registration happens through the Faire - http://whatcomskillsharefaire.org/registration/ . There will be a discounted meal plan for NW Permaculture Convergence attendees (see below for more details; need to mail a check).
Also, we are looking for several hardy volunteers to help with setup and breakdown of our area on Friday and Sunday evening. If interested in that, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Discounted Meal Plan
The package includes the following four meals, served at our Volunteer Kitchen: Lunch and Dinner on Saturday (August 23) and Breakfast and Lunch on Sunday (August 24), and also includes organic tea and coffee on both days.The Skillshare Faire Kitchen is renowned for providing delicious, hearty, GMO-free meals made with ingredients sourced from local farmers and food producers. A salmon dinner will be featured on Saturday night! Gluten Free options will be available.
