VBC13 - City Repair

VBC is Village Building Convergence
Friday, May 24th to Sunday, June 2nd

A 10-Day Community Festival or as they say it an "Urban Permaculture & Grid - Transformation Festival hoping for awakened social ecology in Portland Oregon"

What this is, is a festival to get volunteers together and to help neighborhood communities learn how to participate together in "spaces and places" or planned events.

The theory is if you build it they will come. Or...if you give people a space to come together, they will make a memorable "Place".

I thought this was a cool idea, kind of like building community gardens or parks.
