Do you hold ideas of new ways for this organization, this community to do more good, do no harm and be sustainable as an organization? What is essential to support? Do you hold the vision of what is truly needed now? Please join us and share. Take part in making it happen as a community ally and or co-role, or co-leader.

Saturday. Permaculture fans and designers new and old are invited to circle discussions on scenario planning for resilience in emergencies, build a food security network, village building, land regeneration and explore the future of NW Permaculture community collaborations into 2023 and into our ever-adapting future.
