The 2013 NW Permaculture Convergence is an inclusive annual event which unites communities for a weekend of intensive focus on a common goal: to design sustainable habitats in accordance with nature for all humans, plants, and animals.
The 2013 event will be held at Pacific University, and B Street Farm in Forest Grove, Oregon on August 2 - 4, 2013
Practitioners across a wide spectrum of skill sets exchange ideas through concurrent workshops ranging from organic agriculture and wildcrafting to natural building and appropriate technologies; from environmental remediation and disaster preparedness to community dynamics and global justice.
The 2013 Convergence will include a special Introduction to Applied Permaculture session on Friday morning at B Street Farm from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm.
"Applied Permaculture" means design and actions for real life application. This special discounted introduction will be appropriate for complete newcomers and anyone who wants to receive a concise overview of Permaculture Design Principles and work hands-on Friday morning.
In addition to the workshop space, there are also dedicated areas for skill sharing, children's activities, educational displays, and vendors.
Participants have opportunities to socialize over communal meals sourced from local growers, and during the evening's entertainment. Camping is available on-site for a nominal fee.
