West Coast Women’s Permaculture is dedicated to supporting women in the permaculture movement. We are a volunteer organization hosting the biennial West Coast Women’s Permaculture Gathering to share skills, knowledge, and passion. http://www.westcoastwomenspc.org/ West Coast Women’s Permaculture organizers have been hosting the gathering every two years since 2009. Until now we have been a group of women who have volunteered our time to organize the gatherings because we really believe in women and permaculture and that by bringing the two together the world begins to become the place we dream it can be. It is time to step it up and take WCWP to the next level of organization. We need to develop our mission and vision, governance structure and create the template for future gathering organizers to use, decide whether to become a non-profit or continue to be sponsored by Seattle Tilth. Then we would like to brainstorm ideas for future gatherings here on the west coast. Our gatherings try to be inclusive by offering work trade and scholarships, free childcare, affordable tickets and welcome transgender participants. This year we are raising funds to provide free child care at the NAPC/BRCC and are looking at how we can support families who wish to participate in convergences and courses, by helping fund childcare. We are inviting all past and present WCWPG organizers and women who would like to be a part of organizing future gatherings to attend. We really welcome any woman who are interested in women’s permaculture gatherings!
