A plan is underway for a Michigan/MidWest Permaculture Convergence to take place perhaps somewhere in the beautiful North West Michigan area in the Summer of 2013.
The idea of this convergence is to offer a new community-building/community-training vision, We will select a site and invite the permaculture designers in the area to create a space for the event to showcase permaculture elements.
When the convergence is over the infrastructure will be left behind for the community to use. This also creates a low impact event on the land being used for the site. It will also serve as an example for the community of a large event with a very small footprint.
Next year, the convergence will move to a new Michigan community and repeat the process.
Join us for the upcoming meeting on Jan. 14th in Traverse City, @ 514 Second St., in the Alley 6 pm—-just behind Salon Verve and to the east off the corner of Oak/Second/Randolph Sts. Parking available behind the empty chiropractors’ office.
