A few months back I attempted to raise some money via crowd-funding to cover costs for ten people to participate in a Permaculture Design Course (72hr PDC) here in Scotland. I raised $245 and learned lots. And I was very grateful for the support and encouragement I had for my idea, even if it never got anywhere close to reaching it’s target.
After fees, exchange rates and paypal costs were deducted, the final sum was £95. I asked those who had contributed what they thought I should do with the money, and of those who replied the suggestions were still to use it towards permaculture training.
The amount wouldn’t cover a full Permaculture Design Course, so I held off from making a decision, thinking the right course and/or person would present itself. And then I realised, it could pay for someone to attend the Convergence. After all the convergence will be two days packed full of permaculture learning, sharing & networking, so a good deal for the money I reckon.
So…. there is funding for one person to attend the convergence, courtesy of all those who made contributions to my crowd-funding campaign.
