Friday, Saturday, Sunday, March 28-30
Following in the footsteps paved by the Planetary Repair Institute (2012) and Fostervillage (2013), Kailash Ecovillage will host this year’s event.
Tentative plans call for a similar format to the prior 2 year’s events:
Fri., Mar. 29th (6pm – 9:30pm)
Sat., Mar. 30 (8:30am – 9pm)
Sun., Mar. 31st (8:30am – 3:30pm)
All experience levels are welcome – from beginners to permaculture experts.
Permaculture is the conscious design of ‘cultivated’ ecosystems that have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is a harmonious integration of people into the landscape in such a way that the land grows in richness, productivity and aesthetic beauty.
Continuing on the momentum of the first two years, this is a special opportunity for Permies and the permaculture-curious in SE to gather together, share knowledge and skills, make connections, and inspire one another in taking the next steps in growing a regenerative culture in SE Portland and beyond.
The weekend will begin on Friday, March 28th, with a vegan potluck dinner, after which we will plan the weekend organically based on what people are interested in discussing, presenting and contributing to the weekend. The format for the gathering will include discussion circles, presentations, skill-shares and hands-on projects. We will wrap up on Sunday afternoon after lunch with a next-steps session and closing circle.
Vegan meals will be provided over the course of the weekend, and we are asking for a $35 contribution. If cost is a prohibitive issue, please inquire about work-trade opportunities. Child-care options are undetermined at this moment.
Space will be limited, so please plan to reserve your place as soon as registration opens. (An announcement will follow soon.)
