Welcome to Our 24th Annual Southeastern Permaculture Gathering August 4th-6th, 2017 nestled in the Southern Appalachian Mountains Celo, NC
OUR THEME FULL CIRCLE
Full Circle may be easily seen in our worlds: ebb-and-flow; sunrise-sunset; yearly cycles of births and deaths- from the earth to the earth; ritual ceremonial cycles honoring the seasons; ceremonial circling the fire and Drumming Circle; sharing circles; elders mentoring the passing of knowledge; seed saving "seed-to-seed"; sharing sawdust and poop and pee in circular buckets to compost and grow more food; and so many more examples.
We come together after another year for our yearly late summer Permaculture Gathering having gone through another full season cycle and experiences that take us beyond our past experiences and imagination, and back to ourselves.
The Southeastern Permaculture Gathering is a circling back to found family, sharing food and experiences with old and new friends, new family. What we each do seems to come Full Circle whenever we circle. Past becomes the Future... Hope is nurtured..
