With our 2nd annual PA Permaculture Convergence we will explore how energy is used within systems. No matter what area you are working in, energy consumption, storage and its possibilities are of the utmost importance to keeping systems alive and thriving. Whether it be within the self, your property or your community, knowing how, where, and what to put energy into is something that frameworks our decisions.
Stonehedge is dedicated to providing a healing, sacred, inclusive environment for the cultivation of personal and community transformation and wellness through the gardens and nature, the arts and holistic education. In light of these goals, our second PAPC will take place on June 1st-3rd, 2018 on our garden grounds in Tamaqua Pennsylvania.
Friday and Saturday of the convergence will be focused on informational workshops, group activities, and speakers; on Sunday, participants will be able to choose from several hands-on building workshops to put their knowledge to work. We have spaces set for entertainment, community conversations, fireside chats and more. One of the overlying themes is Creating Community, so we will have many spaces planned for engaging conversations and meeting one another to form bonds that will grow and last beyond the temporary space we create together. We will also be setting up and living in a permaculture Village for the weekend.
It is important to us that we make this event affordable, accessible and engaging to a wide variety of interest levels. This is a limited event with a focused and limited number of attendees to provide an intimate and community building atmosphere.
Three-day passes will be available at $100. These 3 day passes are good from From, Friday 11am and on Sunday 6pm.
We also have single day passes available, $30 for Friday Pass (11am-10pm), $40 for Saturday Pass (8am-10pm), and $30 for Sunday Pass (8am-6pm). Access to all workshops, presentations, and entertainment at night.
Ages 5-14 are donation based at the gate with 3 days of activities planned to keep the kids entertained and informed on their own Permaculture Kids Tract. Special guests and workshops designed to explore the world of Permaculture with our younger generations.

ZERO WASTE CONVERGENCE
In respect of Stonehedge and our neighbors we ask all attendees to be mindful and aware of the space around them, including all areas of the premises (including the porta potties, camping area, communal areas, the garden, etc.) and the surrounding environments (i.e. parking lots located adjacent to, along Diary Rd, etc.). What does it mean to go green? Our goal is to create a zero waste Convergence and we thank you in advance for your support:
