One Green World is excited to announce that we are a sponsor at this years Show. OGWs very own Phil Gouy will be speaking as well as many others.
This year’s Northwest Permaculture Convergence will feature a Permaculture Fruit & Nut Show which will include a display of a wide diversity of fruits and nuts grown in the Pacific Northwest. We will have a lot of unusual fruits and nuts not commonly seen. A multitude of unusual species and varieties. We are checking into tastings, plant sales and more.
There will be excellent workshops at every workshop period on Saturday and Sunday. Convergence participants include some of the Northwest’s most illustrious fruit enthusiasts.

Working Groups at the North American Permaculture Convergence
The Working Groups were one of the most dynamic parts of NAPC. They formed at the Friday morning opening circle. Some groups met only once but most of them met multiple times. Some involved up to 50 people and others were small. At the closing circle, a representative from most of the working groups gave a brief report. This was captured on video and can be watched on the NAPC website.
Here is a list of the NAPC Working Groups
