Join us for some connection, co-creation, and fun! The goal of this event is to support permaculture in our region – building connectivity in the network and improving the quality and outcomes of our educational offerings and experiences in service to our region.
This gathering will help do this by…
– Continuing to build a culture of mutual aid and reciprocity among the network of teachers in our region.
– Creating time and space for professional level peer-to-peer sharing and conversations while also some time for relaxing (aka Unconferencing).
– Exploring more connectivity and alignment between permaculture teachers in our region toward possible outcomes such as agreement on community-derived voluntary standards for permaculture educational quality and functional collaboration.
– Continuing to elevate the application of permaculture ethics and principles in HOW we design and execute educational offerings (pedagogy, justice, equity, etc.)
*The Omega Center for Sustainable Living (OCSL), in collaboration with the Permaculture Association of the Northeast (PAN), will host the Northeast Permaculture Educators’ and Organizers’ Retreat. This event is organized by PAN and generously sponsored by and largely underwritten by OMEGA Institute, which is providing housing, meals & meeting space at a highly subsidized rate. This will help with the cost of food, set up materials, staff time from various departments, and housekeeping for the rooms. The gathering will take place over 3 days, from Oct 8-11, at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY. You are invited to arrive as early as noon on Sun, Oct 8, and you are free (and encouraged) to make use of the facilities, yoga classes, musical offerings and sauna at Omega during your stay.
