To plunge weekend-first right into permaculture, you might check out the Austin Bioregional Campout this weekend:

A joyful and stimulating experience awaits you at the Bioregional Campout, September 19-21, on the shores of Lake Nasworthy in San Angelo. Lake Nasworthy is located at the headwaters of the longest tributary of our Colorado River watershed.

Engage with folks who are creating sustainable solutions to improve our quality of life by enlivening our land, our communities, and ourselves. Activities include educational presentations, group discussions, hands-on permaculture projects, swimming, boating, singing, relaxing, yoga, gardening, campfires, field trips, etc. Anyone interested in building a more sustainable world is welcome.

Raw and living food meals will be served (suggested donation – $20 per person for the weekend). Facilities are available for those desiring cooked food options. San Angelo is about a 3 1/2 hour drive from Austin.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is going to be well worth the trip! Our hosts have invited San Angelo city officials and other influential figures to participate in the event, so this is a great opportunity to get in on the action of promoting permaculture and bioregionalism in the halls of officialdom. Don’t miss it! Carpools are being coordinated, and there is talk of renting a 16-seat van. To offer a ride or ask for a ride, and to connect with other people who are going, simply post a comment by clicking on the COMMENTS field below this blog entry.
