Jenise and Marianne are talking about the upcoming Women’s Permaculture Convergence in San Diego. We are introducing speakers and topics such as water harvesting, art from recycled materials, the business side of Permaculture, using Social Media to grow the business, inoculating logs with mushrooms and more.
Even though this is a local event, all the information can be applied to your area as well. In fact, one of our intentions is to inspire you to gather like minded people in your area and organize a convergence, conference or however you want to call your gathering around the topics of Permaculture, Sustainable Living or a subject dear to your heart.
In fact, we are putting a resource guide together for you to help you get started organizing. Send us a request along with your best email address and it will be yours.
Marianne interviews Karryn Olson-Ramanujan – permaculture designer and teacher and supporter of permapreneurship for women – about the power of women’s gatherings and open space conferences.
