2nd Annual Florida Permaculture Convergence

  • h.e.a.r.t. Institute 210 President’s Dr Lake Wales, FL USA (map)

The Florida Permaculture Convergence is an event to connect permaculture designers, teachers, organizers and enthusiasts throughout the Florida bioregions.

This year's theme is “Cultivating Community." There will be activities for all ages, a plant swap to spread biodiversity, hands on workshops to share skills, camping to create strong connections, and most importantly a space for people to share about the projects they are working on with discussions on how we can begin to move forward as a whole.
