Please note that the funding we had for workshop leaders has now been allocated (it was offered on a first come, first served basis) The programme is also almost full, only a couple of people still to confirm. But, if you have an idea for a workshop or are keen to share your experience, expertise or a design, please do get in touch and we can see what is possible, or keep you in mind in case of any changes to plans.
Many thanks to all who have offered to facilitate workshops, we look forward to seeing you there.
The programme is shaping up very finely for this years convergence, we have some fantastic workshops leaders and speakers confirmed, and all in a very short space of time. The details of which shall be announced shortly We still need a few folk to help us complete the bigger and fully diverse picture. We want to make sure the programme is full-bodied, rounded, tasty, inspiring and fully representative from all angles, permaculture wise. This is where you come in.You can sign up to facilitate a workshop, share your expertise/skills and contribute to making this an event to remember and be talked about for some time to come. AND the good news is, that we still have some *funding that you can claim if you offer a workshop (we had funding for up to twenty five people, £50 p/p, on a first come first served basis) So, if you think the funding may assist you in attending the Convergence AND you would be willing to facilitate a workshop, now is your opportunity to let me know, and sign up.
* Please note that the funding is limited.
