***Gifts for our host
A small gift for the host that comes from your own practice or your community. The convergence is run on a non-profit voluntary basis. While as a participant we will contribute a fee, this is to cover really physical costs such as food, electricity, water, materials, etc. The venue is offereing us the space as well and contributing their knowledge. However, we decided (as participants) to giving something small (ideally of our own creation). Some suggestions are seeds, seedlings, jam, pickles, homebrew, wine or beer (if alcohol is deemed appropriate), handmade salts, our own vermicompost, a CD of our music, a natural dye shirt, a book we helped to write or make, home made cookies, hand-crafted spoons or tools.
