Update on 2014 Inland Northwest Permaculture Convergence Planning

Comments, suggestions and volunteers sought.

Author: Chrys Ostrander

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.

May Permaculture Meeting

Large acreage study group

Author: Annie M

 

The May meeting will be held Sunday the 18th (which is one week earlier than our normally scheduled meeting).  We need some help planting raspberries.  If time and weather permit we'll also be laying black plastic to sterilize some soil.

We'll be passing out some ollas I'm making.  Here's a YouTube link describing the use of ollas as a water saving tool.  The ollas I'm making are made of terra cotta clay and are made on the potter's wheel.  No glue is used. (see you tube link).

Please bring something to share at our monthly potluck.  We'll provide beverages.

Join us May 18th at our home: 12621 E Valleyway, Spokane Valley Wa 99216
