It takes a lot of energy to make something like this happen. Energy comes in many forms - money, skills, time, effort, brain power, food, etc. We would appreciate your energy to help make this event the best it can be. The Emergence Convergence is run entirely by volunteers and all presenters are volunteering their time too. Below is a list of things that are needed (if you can offer something we have missed, you can email us to offer that too). Please email us at to let us know if you can make an offer.
This convergence is aiming to be zero waste. Please think about how you could contribute food items without leaving lots of waste for volunteers and our environment to deal with. Where possible, food will be purchased in bulk so if you are able to provide a gift of money, that will greatly help cover the food costs. There will also be a community pot luck dinner on the Friday night. Consider what package free meal you might be able to provide.
fresh herbs from your garden (basil, parsley, coriander, oregano, thyme, rosemary, dill, mint ...) (for pesto, seasoning, garnishing)
salad greens from your garden
greens from your garden (kale, chard, cabbage, silverbeet ...)
