PAN 2017 Winter Organizers' Retreat Saturday, February 25th
Registration Form for Permaculture Association of the Northeast (PAN) Winter Retreat at D Acres of New Hampshire Permaculture Farm and Educational Homestead in Dorchester, NH.

Come retreat with us this February in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire. We're excited that D Acres is again generously sponsoring the retreat, offering us meals, lodging and meeting space at a dramatically reduced rate. Space is limited to 25 participants.

Here's a rough schedule of the event:
Friday 2/24 - members arrive, optional 6 pm Potluck followed by D Acres Open Mic at 8 pm
Saturday 2/25 - breakfast, meeting focused on creating voluntary set of standards for teachers, optional Contra Dance at Town Hall (6 pm Potluck/7 pm Dance) or ping pong scrum at DAcres.
Sunday 2/26 - breakfast and departure

Participants are asked to make a sliding scale contribution of $20-200 to cover 5 meals (dinner Friday; breakfast, lunch, dinner Saturday; and breakfast Sunday) and 2 nights' lodging in the yoga room. Note: No one will be turned away for lack of funds. (For those who can, a middle range contribution of $80-100 will cover $10 toward each meal and $20 per night of lodging in the yoga room.) Private rooms or beds in a shared room are available at an additional contribution and when reserved in advance.

If you have any questions specifically about the retreat, please contact Patty Love at patty@barefootpermaculture.com.

SPECIAL AGENDA ITEM FOR FEB 2017
-The Development of Voluntary Permaculture Teacher Training Standards
Growing out of national and regional conversations on this topic, we'd like to go deeper into the on-going network-wide conversation about voluntary teacher training standards. Participants may wish to read this article written by Jono Neiger to help establish a common understanding:

PAN is choosing to dedicate focused time to this topic to explore concrete actions we can take as an organization, and ways that we can support increased awareness and action in the community at large, as an expression of Permaculture ethics and a commitment to life-serving systems design.
