International Permaculture Convergence and Conference

Jul 13, 2015

For the first time ever the International Permaculture Convergence and Conference is coming to Britain and will in London this September. It is a unique global gathering of some of the most amazing practitioners and experts from 60 countries and not to be missed. 

Many WWOOFers and hosts will be there and WWOOF members can get a special £10 discount off the current convergence and conference prices – a saving of up to £55 on the full price – by using the code: WWOOFIPC 

The conference is in central London (8th-9th September) and the convergence is in Epping Forest (10-16 September). There’s more information at www.ipcuk.events 

Once you’ve got your ticket (and your discount) perhaps you would consider this appeal from WWOOF UK’s Amanda Pearson who will be attending the conference on our behalf: 

Are you going to the International Permaculture Conference in London on 8th-9th September? Have you got your ticket? Would you be willing to help set up and staff a stall (part time) to promote WWOOF UK in the exhibition hall? If so – we need to hear from you urgently!
