The 2017 Northwest Permaculture Convergence will be taking place Sept. 29 to Oct. 1 at the Clark County Event Center, 15 miles north of downtown Portland.
The Convergence is a conference with presentations, plenary sessions, key note addresses, educational displays and lots of networking. This is the most expansive permaculture event of the year in the Pacific Northwest. It's all about living a greener, more resilient and purposeful lifestyle. Typically, over 500 people attend.
The Convergence costs very little to attend, it is mostly a volunteer labor of love, and no one is turned away for lack of funds. Scholarships are offered along with trading work for the modest cost of admission.
This year's Convergence will include an extensive set of site tours in Portland, open to the public, to see eco-villages, homes, streets and neighborhoods with many permaculture design features that reduce the human impact on the natural world and build civic culture.
To help insure the viability of this and future convergences, we invite your financial or in-kind support and participation. You can simply make a donation to the 501c non-profit Northwest Permaculture Convergence (tax ID# 61-1802782). You can also participate in the Expo by purchasing display space to promote your products and services. Both choices help support the Convergence and could boost your visibility as well.
