2015 Colorado Permaculture Convergence, May 23-25, Cortez

From The Permaculture Provision Project:

Announcing the 2015 Colorado Permaculture Convergence, May 23-25, 2015, Cortez, CO

Have you had your “Aha Moment” with Permaculture? Come to The Four Corners and experience your next Epiphany that will change your perspective and energize everything you do!

In the process experience 2 days of workshops/seminars/demonstrations/roundtables that will have you well on your way to homesteading (urban or otherwise) bliss. Enjoy great company, exotic food, and classic rock and roll while marveling at the prospect that some of the world’s foremost Permaculture experts are making plans to turn the biggest brown spot on the map of the US (The Four Corners Region) into an oasis of abundance.

…and then realize that you can start the same process right in your backyard!
