If you want to help us get the word out, here is what you can do! Our movement has a lot of great energy. Imagine a bunch of that energy on one site, working together. Imagine finding and connecting with people who you most want to connect with. Imagine three days of celebration, learning, planning, and coordination with like minded beings, working with a continent of permculturists to move permaculture to the next level. Who do you think should be there, participating in that process? Who do you think should be there to experience everything that permaculture is and can be? This is your event, put there to help all of us create the future we want. Help us spread the word and get people there! Share our web site and Facebook site on social media and email lists, and send a personal shout out to those you strongly feel should be there. Help us make this event as amazing as it has the potential to be!

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.
