Hello family and friends old and new, I bear exciting news!

I have been granted a spot to assist teach on an extended permaculture design course headed by some of the most inspiring humans alive Starhawk, Robyn Francis, Rico Zook, Jude Hobbs, Clea Chandmal to name a few, as part of the International Permaculture Convergence in India. I need your support to make this long dreamed of opportunity a reality!


The International Permaculture Convergence 2017 brings together active agents of positive change. It is a chance for us to collaborate, exchange knowledge and come up with solutions to the problems we face as a species. We learn to deepen our connection with nature and to work with her rather against her. We  take our observations and weave them into our design to co-create a more hopeful story for our future. All this will take place in India, a magical country in need of healing.


Last year, my partner Nicky and I left the UK and embarked on a journey of exploration, to expand and apply our experience of permaculture and the arts by volunteering on a series of projects in India and Nepal. For more details please visit my website http://www.claudeoprea.com/  


We made some wonderful connections and our hearts and souls are enriched from this valuable time away. However, we are living on a traveller's budget to make it happen. It would mean the world to me to have your support to help me learn from this unique, once in a lifetime opportunity.  


Please dig deep for amazing rewards!


$700 is needed to cover the following expenses:

$550 fee for TA covering my meals and a fee for IPC India

$120 accommodation in a rented tent during the PDC

$30 train ticket to Hyderabad from Mumbai


There are great rewards for your generosity. From mini series of photographs from our travels to permaculture consultancy work, permaculture resources that have influenced my work and an investment opportunity for a spot on one of the PDC's, workshops and retreats I will be offering over the next two years.


Please share this campaign in your networks and with your friends. There are only 25 days to reach my goal. Thank you from the heart for your support in making my dream come true. Thank you to all and especially to We The Trees for creating this wonderful platform to enable very cool projects to manifest! Thank you We The Trees!

Big love to all.
