Women's Convergence Spring 2020

 

As of now, we are canceling the in person portion of these events and plan to livestream them. Check back to sign up to receive log in information, or sign up for our newsletter to get notified when this is available. We will also offer free gardening and other resilience classes online. 

 

 This will be a low-key, relatively informal affair with limited attendance. This event is being co-created by a group of women who have been in communication about this and wanting to do something like it for a while. It will be very much a co-created event by the women who attend. 

What we will do:

Commune
Decompress and heal
Nature art
Deepen connection
Learn
Celebrate
Collaborate

We know many people are concerned about the coronavirus and we want to ensure we are thoughtful in our response to this. Please see the article about coronavirus on this site. We are thoughtfully observing information from experts on this illness and it will be a group decision whether we cancel or limit this event because of it, or not. There is a real possibility of that, depending on what direction things are going. We will be taking many steps to ensure a healthy, clean and safe environment for attendees if the event goes forward and welcome your participation in and co-design of that process. 

Community kitchen - Please bring enough food to feed the number of people you are bringing for the weekend. We will be serving potluck for each meal (or eat your own food, if you prefer). Some things could be premade and heated, some could be prepared on site. We will have a prep counter, full gas stove and large gas grill, countertop heating elements, a rocket stove, coffee and tea pots, and various pots and pans (we are very limited on large pots/pans, so please bring some!) Collaborate - bring some commonly used ingredients and we will all make a magic Stone Soup with them. Suggestion - keep it simple! Save your energy for the event itself. Also, please bring your own plate, bowl, utensils, cup, etc!  

Suggestions:

Cook a large pot of soup, stew, or casserole beforehand that can be heated up. 
Eggs from your chickens. 
Oatmeal, fruit, nuts and other fixings for it.
Tea or other drinks. 
Pre-made desserts. 
Salad fixings!  Fresh or dried fruit
Easy make taco or sandwich fixings. 

Important - please RSVP (can be tentative, to info @ growpermaculture dot com) to get on our email list (https://lists.growpermaculture.com) and get updates. Pre-event is going to be an important part of the event. We have limited camping space as well. RSVP to ensure you have a spot.  Also we have limited parking. Carpool if you can!

Camping facilities include outdoor showers and toilets.

If we do cancel or limit the event, we are currently in discussions about holding some Zoom sessions or other online sessions. Not nearly as good as being in each other's presence, but some of us have gotten some really wonderful things done online. This event is donation based. Love offerings accepted in cash - suggested amounts, $20-100.
