Update on 2014 Inland Northwest Permaculture Convergence Planning

Comments, suggestions and volunteers sought.

Here's an update on where we are planning for the 2014 Inland Northwest Permaculture Convergence. Whether we will actually hold this gathering has NOT been finalized.

I posted this update on the INPG Convergence Organizers' Listserve but we haven't heard back from anyone other than a couple of folks who said they'd be interested in attending. So, I'm expanding the outreach seeking comments, suggestions and volunteers from the Spokane Permaculture community.

Thanks to Gabe's hard work, here's what it looks like at this time

Dates: Sept. 11, 12, 13, 14

Location: Heartsong Retreat Center, Tum Tum, WA (Gabe confirmed with them that this venue is available and the folks there would welcome us)

Cost to INPG: A percentage (yet to be determined) of the profits.

Cost to attendees: To be determined. Work trade specifics also.

Event size: Up to 120 people.

We realize there is not much time, basically 2 months, to put together a gathering. Maybe folks feel like that's not enough time, but Gabe and I agreed that if we hear from just one or two people who are willing to really roll up their sleeves and help with the organizing, we'll keep on working to put on this year's gathering at Heartsong.

KREM2 aired our Event Center/Farm!

If you follow the link there's a brief article and they actually used the word "permaculture". ;-)

KREM2 came out and did an interview on what we were doing with moving our farm and opening Mont Lamm Events - 1.5 hours of interview crammed into 1.5 minutes. It's as good as it gets. ;-)

Permaculture at the City Planning Level

Transforming Urban Environments for a Peak Oil Future - A Vision Plan for the City of San Buenaventura, CA

Wow!  This is the best example of a city wide vision of transforming it's entire city to a more sustainable Post-Peak Oil Future.  The report and appendixes are nearly 300 pages with many pictures and diagrams that show the transformation of a city to a Permamaculture Community.  This not only demonstrates that cities and local governments recognize the problems approaching us but are also putting the effort forward to solve (or mitigate) them.

Inspiring...  I wish it was Spokane...  maybe it will reach the planners in our town...  soon.
