7th Annual Inland Northwest Permaculture Convergence
The 2017 Inland Northwest Permaculture Convergence is being held in the Flathead Valley in Montana August 24th-27th.
We're looking for a venue - we need space for 200-300 people to camp, with options for indoor accommodations. We also need a large kitchen space, where we cook up all the donated, homegrown food our permie people bring. We like to have a few indoor spaces to teach workshops with Power Point, as well as on-site learning opportunities and outdoor workshop spaces. We would love the opportunity to do a hands-on project at the site in partial trade for its use, and as a teaching tool to kick off the event.
Of course free is amazing, but we're looking early enough and have time to plan our budget. Please think of your friends with around 5 acres, (or more) who would like to learn more about permaculture, farming, homesteading, stewardship and to help us spread the word! Let's find a place in January so we can get the plans rolling! Think think think...who do you know????? We would pay use fees and bring a good deal of infrastructure with us, also leaving behind permie projects and tons of good energy! Have a lead? Contact us.
The 6th Annual Inland Northwest Permaculture Convergence happened between Sept. 9 - 11, 2016 at Heartsong in Tumtum, WA.

Our 2016 Theme was:
Affordable Admission: $75 per person suggested for all 3 days, children 12 and under are FREE, teens suggested 3-day admission $37.50. $40 per person suggested single day rate. Meals included. No one turned away for lack of funds. For kids 6 - 13, check out the optional Children's Program (Children under 10 not enrolled in the Twin Eagles Program must be closely supervised by parents or guardian. We don't want young children running around unsupervised).
Skill-share Village: We built a community village to share homesteading, ancestral and/or primitive skills, such as, blacksmithing, spinning, weaving, fiber craft, skills, flint-napping, fire making, tanning, buckskin sewing, pottery, bow and arrow making, etc., that can be demonstrated or be hands-on. Folks had a booth, tent or station to do their activities, show stuff, and do education. Outreach and sales are encouraged. Go HERE for full details.
Heart-felt thanks to our 2016 Sponsors!!
