Greetings to all Permaculture practitioners, the self-reliance movement, natural farmers, organic farmers, friends and family who love and care for Mother Earth! TPC 2017 is an event where practitioners come together to connect and learn with others. Given the need to create stronger relationships between like-minded practitioners across Thailand, we encourage various groups to attend this event.
We humbly ask that we abide by the ethics of Permaculture:
Care for the Earth
Care for the People
We are a small group of dedicated people who share Permaculture, Self-reliance and resilience, organic and/or natural farming as a ‘way of life’.
A permaculture convergence is about coming together to share your skills, knowledge, experience, challenges and inspiration from practicing or trying to practice Permaculture or systems of other names that share the same principles. Everyone has knowledge to share, and learning never stops.
Convergences are also co-owned, co-created, and co-organized events. Joining means giving and receiving. Giving of your knowledge and helping in other ways to make the event smooth, enjoyable, and valuable for all.
Receiving means accepting, acknowledging, and appreciating the gifts that the community created during the convergence is sharing.
The fee is kept as low as possible. It covers food/accommodation costs and a very minimal support fee to the host. Then there is a small amount beyond this that can help cover some materials and may help a few who really cannot afford the fee to pay less or be used to invite a few respected elders to join the event free of charge.
No one receives any salary or payment. This low fee is only possible and fair if everyone gives in other ways to make the event happen.
Come and join us and participate in this worthy event.
