San Luis Obispo’s 1st Annual Village Building Convergence

March 31, 2017 @ 5:30 pm – April 2, 2017 @ 3:00 pm
Blooming Biodiversity Permaculture Tours

The SLO VBC will be a phenomenal community building event filled with neighborhood-improving permaculture projects that include street murals, front-yard gardens, live music, and much more!

Each day of the convergence at sites all around SLO, neighbors come together with visitors to create community spaces that feature public art, gathering places, permaculture gardens, and natural buildings, in a process we call “placemaking”. Participating in these events are free for everyone!

In the evening, we come together for an inspiring conference, community gathering, and incredible musical offerings. These evenings start with a community dinner at 6pm, workshops at 7pm and music at 8pm. The tickets for these evenings are an incredible value and help support our placemaking community service work.
