Dear Permaculture Friends:

Wow, we are really excited about how the summer Northease [US] Permaculture
Convergence is shaping up and want to encourage you to register in the next
week or two as it looks like registration will close around June 18th.
 Remember that your ticket includes camping, all sessions (more than 40 to
choose from) and delicious local, organic meals by Local Sprouts
Cooperative.

Here are some important notes:

You can get a full Convergence registration for as little as $35 by pulling
a couple of 2-hour volunteer shifts!  (or $55 if you do one shift!) We still
have some volunteer slots to fill.  Sign up here:

Day passes are available.

Kids under 13 are free and teens are discounted.  We have some cool
dedicated activities for them as well.

If you're coming from far away, please organize a ride share or convoy!
 This will help:

Field trips include Eliot Coleman's place, the Nearings' homestead, Deb
Soule's Avena Botanicals and many more very cool sites.
