Hello Permaculture Supporters and Enthusiasts!
We are happy to announce that the second West Coast
Women's Permaculture Gathering will be happening this spring. The event will take place over three days and be in northern California or possibly southern Oregon
. The first Women's Permaculture Gathering was at Quail Springs in May of 2009. It was a wonderful event and we look forward to continuing this great tradition.
Please read read below for ways to get involved in the 2nd West Coast Woman's Permaculture Gathering. Thank you!!
A Google group was created to coordinate the first gathering. At the bottom of this email is information on how to join that group. Joining the group is the best way to receive the final details of the event and participate. Please join the group!
~Donations and Funding~
When planning events the registration process usually consumes a lot of the time and energy of dedicated volunteers. For the event we intend to hire and honorably pay a registrar (person or organization) to handle this vital task. We are seeking a donation or two of money to support this endeavor. Every little bit helps and we are looking for an angel
or two to underwrite this! Is it you? Please contact us at womenspc <at> gmail.com
We are currently looking for potential venues in Northern CA and Southern OR. We would also like ideas for speakers and discussion topics. If you have any ideas or have general questions please email, womenspc <at> gmail.com
Google group info:
The women's permaculture Google group is intended to be a one-stop shop for organizers and participants to communicate with each other. You can request an invitation to join at the following site: http://groups.google.com/group/westcoastwomenspermaculture
Please include with who, where, and when you took your pdc/gained your permaculture experience and what your interests/specialties in permaculture are in your request, this helps with spam detection. There is typically very little traffic on this list, traffic speeds up the closer we are to the event.
You can choose how you receive information from the group. Once you are signed up click, "manage my membership" on the right side of the page. You can choose among options such as "no email" (you need to logon to see group activity), digest email (you get no more than one email daily with the most recent 25 emails from the group all together), or email (each email sent to the group shows up in your inbox).
If you choose the digest format please make sure that you delete the digest when you reply to an email thread or the entire digest gets copied into your reply!
