National Permaculture Convergence 2019

SAVE THE DATE!  6 - 9 September 2019

It's time to get excited for the 2019 National Permaculture Convergence! It will be held at Hill End near Oxford.

After a successful urban convergence in Manchester in September 2018, we're returning to the fields in 2019 at an eco-activity centre with camping, dormitories and lots of meeting spaces onsite.

More information to follow early 2019.
