Alberta Permaculture Convergence 2018
Intentional Sharing Thoughtful Creation Active Learning
The philosophy behind permaculture is one of working with, rather than against, nature; of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted and thoughtless action; of looking at systems in all their functions, rather than asking only one yield of them; and allowing systems to demonstrate their own evolutions.
~ Bill Mollison
As we converge we will create a temporary village. We will gather around the communal fire, share our experience, our food, our intention, our love of the Earth. We will face each other in a circle. All participants are welcome to join in building our village.
As we converge we will participate. We all have so much to share, knowledge, experience, crafts, intention, practice. Sharing is a gift.
All participants are encouraged to contribute a gift to the community.
Again the only limitation is your imagination.
As we converge we will be self reliant. The land is an open canvas, ready for your expression. There are few amenities. The plan is to have everything take place outside. Please bring everything you will need to survive and thrive over the weekend. This should include food and drink, camping gear, clothing and footwear for all weather, shade, wind, rain and sun protection, cooking equipment (no open fires other than communal fire), plates, bowls, cutlery, chairs and tables. Please be mindful of your garbage. Pack it in, pack it out. There is no waste. We will be able to compost organic material, carbon and grey water.
There will be a permaculture installation happening over the weekend. Bring your favorite battle shovel.
Earth Care, People Care, Fair Share.
