WHEN: August 29-31, 2014
WHERE: Harmony Park, Minnesota, an event venue an hour and a half south of Minneapolis.
WHY: A gathering of professionals and students of permaculture design for the purpose of continuing education and networking.
On August 29th to 31st, 2014 the first North American Permaculture Convergence will be held at Harmony Park, a 40-acre outdoor events venue in Clarks Grove, Minnesota with a permaculture installation and on a gorgeous lake. Permaculture professionals and practitioners of all ages will connect with their peer group to make this first continent-wide convergence an historic event.
Permaculture is a system of ecological design that strives to use local and renewable resources to create resilient and abundant human systems,such as a backyard garden, a farm, or a town.
The North American Permaculture Convergence is an opportunity for permaculturalists to network and exchange ideas and knowledge. Join us for educational workshops, hands-on demonstrations, networking, discussion groups, round tables, children's permaculture adventures, entertainment, music, a permaculture exposition, and local, organic fare. Special topics at the convergence will include – permaculture education systems, curriculum, regional design nuances, and continent-wide movement building.
A series of workshop intensives and site tours, featuring Toby Hemenway, Jude Hobbs, Mark Shepard and others will be held in the days before and after the North American Convergence.
Early bird tickets are only $200 until August 15th! For event registration, please visit our website.
