What’s The Big Deal?

The 2015 Convergence received feedback by many conference and festival goers alike that it was their favorite and most meaningful gathering of the entire year!


This Year the North American Permaculture Convergence & the Building Resilient Communities Convergence have Joined Forces!


The North American Permaculture Convergence (NAPC)

Building off the work done at the 1st North American Permaculture Convergence and previous International Permaculture Convergences, the NAPC facilitates the growth, interconnection, and advancement of the permaculture movement and coordination of activities on a Continental level. The NAPC Convenes continuing education opportunities, working groups, and both guided and informal networking sessions.

The Building Resilient Communities Convergence (BRCC)

Evolving from 10+ years of the NorCal Permaculture Convergence, the BRCC brings together sustainability enthusiasts, permaculture designers, social entrepreneurs, community organizers, social justice activists, people from the NorCal Bioregion, the West Coast, and beyond for a dynamic, engaging, and celebratory gathering designed to build a powerful movement for community resilience.

van_jones_logo“Diversity is a core principle in creating living systems. That’s why I’m glad the Permaculture community is working hard to include more people of color and youth at the upcoming Building Resilient Communities Convergence. Cultural diversity will lead to a better conference which will produce a more resilient movement.”
