Save the Date: The 2020 Northeast Pc Convergence is coming!

The Permaculture Association of the Northeast (PAN), a PINA Regional Hub, is pleased to announce that we are working with a small group of Pc folks from around the region to organize a 2020 NE Permaculture Convergence! The last region-wide Convergence was held at the MOFGA Fairgrounds in Unity, Maine in 2014, so we are thrilled to be planning an event to kick off the decade. 

We will converge Friday July 24 – Sunday July 26, 2020 at D Acres Permaculture Farm and Educational Homestead in Dorchester, NH. The slogan and theme for the event is “2020: Where Hindsight Meets Foresight.” We give special thanks to Josephine Hingston for inspiring the slogan via her submission in the 2020 Convergence Slogan Search.

To stay up-to-date on event details as they emerge, check the event website.

AND, to pique your interest, here is a preliminary list of workshops being offered! Keep an eye out for more information such as session descriptions and bios, which we will add to PAN’s website in the near future.
