Northwest Permaculture Convergence Focusing On Sustainable Neighborhoods

Northwest Permaculture Convergence

This weekend Eugene is hosting the 8th annual Northwest Permaculture Convergence. The idea of meeting human needs in ways that also are good for the environment is a philosophy that has resonance in Eugene. At the event people can participate in workshops and tour local homes to see examples of sustainable gardens and yards. Jan Spencer is the Coordinator of Northwest Permaculture Convergence. He hopes people understand permaculture is a lifestyle choice.

Spencer: "This is not just about growing vegetables in your backyard, the ideals of creating systems that fit within the natural world, within our economic and ecological means - these are also characteristics of permaculture."

Spencer says in a world facing many environmental problems, more people are being drawn to a more sustainable lifestyle. The Northwest Permaculture Convergence is being held at the River Road Recreation Center in Eugene on Sunday. Admission is free.
