ON SUNDAY, AUGUST 27TH AT THE SCHUYLER COUNTY COOPERATIVE EXTENSION
FACILITY IN MONTOUR FALLS, NYPERMACULTURE ACTIVISTS WILL CONVENE TO
SHARE, NETWORK AND LEARN. YOUR INPUT IS INVITED FOR THE MORNING
WORKSHOPS AND THE AFTERNOON DISCUSSION.
This year, _"diversity in approaches to permaculture_" has emerged as a
theme. WE INVITE ANYONE WHO IS USING PATTERNS IN NATURE TO INFORM THEIR
WORK TO PRESENT A WORKSHOP OR JOIN IN THE DISCUSSION. Whether you use
the word "permaculture" and work directly with plants, animals, and soil
OR you are inspired by natural patterns in how you and your organization
design human social and economic systems, you are welcome!
The first half of the day will be spent in workshops. 45 minute blocks
run from 9:30am-10:45am and 11:00am-11:45am. The 90 minute block runs
TO PROPOSE YOUR WORKSHOP, SEND AN EMAIL TO
<i...@fingerlakespermaculture.org> WITH YOUR NAME, A DESCRIPTION OF YOUR
PRESENTATION TOPIC, AND SPECIFY YOUR TIME SLOT PREFERENCE.
Following the morning workshops there will be a 90 minute lunch break
with food trucks in the parking lot. Throughout the day, A PLANT SALE
 sponsored by CORNELL COOPERATIVE EXTENSION OF SCHUYLER COUNTY 
will take place outside as well.
The second half of the day will commence at 1pm. FLPCI will share the
seeds of a participatory conference format we have gathered from other
regional permaculture convergences. WE WILL EXPLORE THE THEME “HOW CAN
PERMACULTURE BEST SERVE OUR COMMUNITIES?” using OPEN SPACE TECHNOLOGY
 (OST) facilitation. This non-hierarchical format allows you and the
other attendees to create the agenda and self-organize around your own
interests. ALL participants are invited to bring their wisdom, passions,
or questions revolving around our theme to the mix. This session will
start with an orientation, so please arrive promptly.
