Village Building Convergence Info meeting October 2nd, 6-8PM.

The NBC a few years ago grew out of the Natural Building events that have
traditionally been held in the middle-of-nowhere but the NBC and then the
VBC exemplify taking sustainable techniques and putting them in the
context of urban life and community decisionmaking. This is an opportunity
to make some real change and get those seeds out there for transforming
Portland.
