The Northwest Permaculture Convergence (NWPCC) is an inclusive annual weekend-long event that alternates between Oregon and Washington State. The Convergence brings together a remarkable diversity of people, all with creative approaches for designing living environments, and economic and culture systems that thrive within ecologically sustainable limits. Everyone who practices the ideals of Permaculture speaks a common language across the Northwest and all over the world.
NWPCC teams-up with local communities for 'Shoulder Events,' supporting our allies with tours, panel discussions, workshops, and classes. Every year, the organization offers a number of volunteer and work trade positions. Ride shares, home stays and food donations can be arranged using the website.
Long time enthusiasts and beginners alike pilgrimage from every corner of the Cascadian Bioregion which extends from coastal Alaskan Panhandle to the north, into Northern California in the south, and inland to include parts of the Yukon, Idaho, Wyoming and Western Montana.
The 2015 NWPCC was held
August 28 - 30
at the River Road Recreation Center in Eugene, OR.
The annual Northwest Permaculture Convergence was a unique opportunity to share permaculture skills, stories and fun with others who are working to build resilient communities. The 2015 Convergence was the first ever to be hosted in a suburban neighborhood. In Eugene, host city for the event, there were many impressive sites to show and stories to tell about greening our lives, neighborhoods and communities.

The 2015 Convergence theme was “Greening Our Neighborhoods With Permaculture.”
The Convergence explored a wide range of social, economic and appropriate technology topics and issues, both urban and rural, ranging in scope from home-based to regional-scale, and included hands-on, participatory workshops. The intent was to showcase “evidence of a preferred future” and to demonstrate how we can move these timely models and prototypes further into the Mainstream.
The weekend started Friday with an impressive set of site tours. Saturday and Sunday featured indoor panels and presentations. The innovative Green Neighborhood Summit took place on Saturday along with the outdoor Expo and Skill-Share.
