I live nearby, have been involved in permaculture since the late 80s and I'm not coming because I'm living on $500/month and can't afford $150 nor afford to pay someone to cover all the chores here. So don't assume it's ludicrously low for everyone.

For $50 more, NAPC could have compensated everyone well for their work and had broader appeal. And at a regular conference rate, we could have funded the projects we'll conceive there. I know a lot of people who aren’t attending because it’s just the usual folks, camping in a field, like every convergence.
