Have you ever been to an International Permaculture Convergence (IPC)?

They are epic!  drawing the best & brightest permaculturists from around the globe to help put together visionary solutions for a better world. 

For more than 40 years Permaculture has been leading the way with innovative, planet and climate friendly design strategies, that are just now being fully recognized by the rest of the world as the answer to some of our most pressing problems.  Held every two years in different parts of the globe, the next IPC takes place in Hyderabad India, November 2017, hosted by Aranya Agricultural Alternatives.

The Friends of the International Permaculture Convergences (FIPC) and  Santa Barbara Permaculture Network are hosting a CROWD FUND event in support of the IPC India scholarship fund on Sunday, May 28, with electro-funk, ecological electro-swing ukulele, super infectious Charlie Mgee, of the Formidable Vegetable Sound System band.   The concert event takes place in a beautiful outdoor setting on ranch on the Santa Barbara Coast, where sustainability & carbon farming techniques have been practiced for more than a decade. 

From Australia, Charlie is currently on tour in our area promoting his new CD.  He has been to every corner of the globe, recognizing music as one of the best tools for bringing about cultural change, and has dedicated his musical mission to composing swingin’ tunes on ukulele about sustainability, Permaculture, and other ecological themes.  In 2015, Charlie played for the opening night of the most recent IPC, the International Permaculture Convergence in London, England. 

Please join us for an evening of celebration, as we celebrate 20 years of Permaculture in our Southern California region, and India celebrates a 30 year anniversary since Bill Mollison arrived to share the word of Permaculture on that continent.   In addition to an evening of music, we will share some exciting news about IPC India and the exemplary work Aranya and others have been doing in India through the years

All event ticket admissions go towards the crowd fund, which is specifically for scholarships for IPC delegates from around the world, who may be skill rich, but many times coming from countries and regions that are cash poor.  Forty-two delegates have applied so far.  Please support generously with your dollars, the life & civilization they save may be your own! 

Beverages & appetizers will be offered, and a Food Cart with Indian themed food for purchase will also be available (please indicate when registering if interested in purchasing).

Charlie’s new CD will be available for sale, and the newest edition of the Permaculture Magazine North America, just off the press, will be available for a special event price.

The event is invitation only through Eventbrite, with directions provided after payment & registration.  Bring hats, a lawn chair, warm clothing for evening temperatures.  Parking is limited, please carpool!
