European Permaculture Teacher’s Convergence * June 17th-19th, 2011 * Ecovillage of Sieben Linden

To all those that teach Permaculture in Europe: we invite you to the Ecovillage of Sieben Linden for a weekend of exchange, mutual support and developing permaculture education in Europe!

Ideally, these meetings would happen every other year to the EU-Permaculture Convergence, which matches just fine right now: the first European PC Teacher’s Convergence (ETC) will happen on June 17th-19th, 2011!
