This year’s convergence will follow in the tradition of past convergences: open to everyone, with programming throughout and a chance to meet other permaculture designers and activists and folks new to permaculture.  The entire event will be very kid and family friendly.


Presentations and workshops from Skotty Kellogg of the Radix Center, Lisa DePiano of Mobile Design Lab, Dave Jacke and Eric Toensmeier of Edible Forest Gardens, and Ryan Harb of UMass Permaculture with topics ranging from polyculture design to hugelkultur to food systems planning, and much much more.
