PERMACULTURE VOICES 2015
March 4-8, 2015 | San Diego, CA
The conference is now less than 1 month away.
See Paul Stamets, Allan Savory, Toby Hemenway, Elaine Ingham, Mark Shepard, and many, many more..
We have brought together a diverse group of creative and innovative doers in a variety of fields looking to share experiences, knowledge, connect, and create in ways that increase passion, purpose and profit. These doers come from a variety of fields both within and outside of permaculture. Each field has its own needs and yields. It is this edge that creates the opportunity for things to happen, and it is this opportunity that offers value to the attendees – how can you fill needs and utilize yields to create more value in your life.
It all goes down in..
The Permaculture Voices Conference ties together the most innovative work in permaculture with the innovated work taking place in related areas, like mycology. Paul Stamets highlights this interconnection with his article The Stametsian Model for Permaculture with a Mycological Twist.
If you could solve some of the world’s problems with permaculture and earn a living in the process, would you do that?
Most people would, but most people think that it isn’t possible.
It is possible and there are a lot of people doing it.
And a lot of those people will be presenting at The Permaculture Voices 2015 Conference including Mark Shepard, Stefan Sobkowiak, Jean-Martin Fortier, and many more.
Permaculture Voices 2015 will heavily focus on permaculture based businesses from real life practitioners who will be talking about what works and what doesn’t. Conference tickets are on sale now and scholarships are available.
At Permaculture Voices 2015 attendees will have the opportunity to:
- Gain new perspectives – What are other people doing in business that you could do, and how could you do it?
- Identify new opportunities – What problems are out there that need solving and how can you solve them?
- See successful business models – What’s being done outside your bio-region that you could do in your bio-region?
- Build a support network – Connect with people who can help support, finance, and build your business.
- Learn practical skills that can help you run your business more efficiently and profitably from someone who has already done it.
If you are thinking about coming, get your ticket while you can.
You won’t regret it.
Have you ever been around 500 people that share similar values to you?
People that generally believe what you believe – that our current paradigm is broken, and we need to change it.
People that are actively participating in being part of the change.
That’s what PV2 is and will be.
500 switched on and engaged individuals that are coming together as one to share ideas and grow, so everyone can go home and do more epic shXt.
PV2 is all about connection.
For PV2 we have created an immersive environment that will allow you share ideas, build friendships, and deeply connect with a supportive community for 5 days and 4 nights.
I believe that if you go into these 5 days and put yourself out there, sharing and connecting that you will leave changed.
Come in open minded, come in with a plan, and create connections to take what you are doing and your life to the next level.
The community of Permaculture Voices is a very active subset of the permaculture community, they are doers and they are going for it.
Most importantly I think that you all are community that wants to help each other, and help each person in the community succeed.
March is coming up fast. Come out, share stories, struggles, and successes, and leave better than you came in.
That is why you are traveling out to San Diego.
For the experience. For the connection.
Get what you can’t get online.
Take the step. It will be fun.
Does your vision of the future align with what you see in permaculture? But are having a hard time making that vision a reality?
You aren’t alone.
Are you struggling to find out how to live the permaculture life that you dream of?
Again, you aren’t alone.
Many people are attracted to the positive paradigm shift that permaculture represents, but they struggle with how to use the tools and tactics of permaculture in their daily life. They get inspired and motivated by PDCs and what they see on the web, but they often find themselves thinking, now what?
You may be in that same boat. Knowing where you want to go, but not quite sure how to get there.
You might be missing something.
And PV2 may be your answer because I think it might help to solve…
How to transition to a permaculture livelihood…
Connect with other people that are already doing it, what’s working for them, and what isn’t. We aren’t talking about theory here, we are talking about real world application. Learn from someone doing it, leverage their experience.
How to fund that transition…
Grants, value adding onto other businesses, small side businesses, and low capital cost businesses are some of the ways to do that. The PV2 audience will be made up with a wide array of entrepreneurs – from the small scale entrepreneurs just starting out to the more experiences business owners who have been around a while. The people have done it and can help you with your journey.
The specific technique information for the enterprise you want to start…
How is the X year veteran running their enterprise, and how could their experience save you time and money? How are they grazing their cattle? How are they interacting with clients? Would what they are doing work for you?
Would that idea work…
Is someone else doing this successfully outside your bio-region? Does someone have more experience in this area that I could shares ideas with over coffee? You don’t need a unique idea to start a business. You need an idea that solves someones problem and works.
The inspiration needed to bolster your spirits for not only 4 days but for 4 seasons…
If you need a boost to get unstuck or started you will get a heavy dose of inspirational content from people at every level of the success ladder giving you an educational, motivational four day adventure with some of the best people in the world…
These are some of the problems that I think PV2 can solve. But in reality, the list is limitless. It’s really hard to represent all of the ways which Permaculture Voices delivers value because I think it is different for everyone. Knowing that, we have tried to create a supportive and creative environment that sparks conversation and connection. And when you are immersed amongst 500 like minded individuals you start to find missing pieces and you start to change.
PV1 touched a lot of people in a powerful way. (I have heard it over and over). I don’t say this lightly, but I think PV2 can be a life changer for some people. Not for everyone, and maybe not for you, but for some permies PV2 will provide that missing piece. A missing piece that isn’t identifiable now, but one that will have a huge leveraging affect when found.
I believe that time is to precious to waste. Don’t let your future self live with great. Live the life that you want to live and start now.
If you dream about a different life, one that involves permaculture, then stop dreaming.
Take the steps necessary to make that dream a reality.
Go for it. Take those first steps.
It won’t be easy, but you have to start.
And for many PV2 will be the start to that journey to where they want to go..
