First Ever Mediterranean Permaculture Convergence in Turkey, July 2012!

Tony Rollinson
Friday, 11th May 2012

The Permaculture Design Course graduates of the Mediterranean and the Middle-east will converge in Istanbul, Turkey in July 2012. This will be the first such gathering in and of the region.

This event will make possible the initiation of networking and sharing of knowledge & experiences in the region, which is shockingly lacking in the global pemaculture community. The Mediterranean is the zone where we need this collaboration the most; in response to severe soil loss due to population pressures and the nature of the climate pattern.



7-21 July 2012.

Sharing, documenting and database building for successes and failures in the region is a main theme for the convergence Marmariç

150 Euro, 100 Euro for PDC participants & scholarships available.

PRI Turkey will be hosting two other major events before the Convergence.
