There will finally be another Natural Building Colloquium in the East (NY 
State). The only previous one in the East was in Maryland in 1998. There 
are some snapshots from it at  http://potkettleblack.com/natbild/nbce.html

While they have at least three dozen presenters lined up already (most of 
them are listed 
at  http://www.gaiatecture.com/workshops/nbce04/nbce_presenters.html  and 
for links relating to some of them, see the bottom of this message) they 
still have room for a couple permaculture presenters. Here are a couple 
quotes from the organizer:

 > The PeaceWeavers reside in Bath, New York on Thunder Mountain, a 250 
acre wildlife sanctuary.  Thunder Mountain encompasses a spring-fed, five 
acre lake, beautiful
 > deciduous and evergreen forests, apple and pear trees and an organic 
farm.  Through their retreats and gatherings, the PeaceWeavers inspire 
individuals and families to
 > embrace greater peace and wellness.  For over a dozen years, this group 
has been offering healing community experiences which have touched 
thousands of people.
 > NBCE 2004 will help fulfill their vision of becoming a model of 
sustainable living using renewable energy and natural building. For more 
information about this community
 > please visit their website at www.peaceweavers.com

 > The community has a need for Permaculture expertise to guide the 
development of gardening and land caretaking around the existing buildings 
and structures built
 > at the colloquium.

If anyone is interested in presenting please email me (Sarah Machtey) 
at  mudhome at netzero.net

There will also be a Renewable Energy Expo on the Wednesday during the 
colloquium, for which they still have room for more presenters, vendors, 
and sponsors. If you know of anyone interested, they can email me too.

For anyone interested attending the Colloquium, or just the Expo, please 
see a letter from the organizer, which I have included below for links to 
more information and registration. I have, of course, left off the 
attachments mentioned since this message is for a list. If you want them, 
just email me.
